Summary of the book
My Review of Blaze of Glory
Tea demonstrates a love for horses and a passion for horse jumping. Along with her twin Brother Seth, Tea teaches riding lessons and cares for the horses that are housed and cared for on their property. Tea is also a head-strong young lady, with a strict step-father. Though her step-father cautions her aggressive jump training, Tea proceeds to do want she wants anyway. This includes acquiring a secret job to pay for the big costs of participating in prestigious horse competitions.–
Garzon brings the reader along for a ride as we see how Tea faces challenges head on. Then along comes her handsome, and older, step-cousin Jaden. It certainly was interesting to see their relationship play out on the pages. The realities of Tea’s coming of age, are something most young women can find mirrored in their own lives. More than once I felt as though Garzon had eavesdropped on my own teen years.
Blaze of Glory has multi-layered story lines, that co-mingle and weave around each other nicely. Though an animal lover, I have no experience or knowledge of the world of Horses. With many equestrian terms sprinkled into the dialogue, I found it educational. And never found my lack of horse-sense leaving me lost in the plot.
m. garzon rode horses professionally for ten years, until an injury prompted a career change. She returned to school and completed a BSc; then, for good measure, an MBA. After several years of toiling as a business consultant, she turned to writing in a desperate bid to regain her sanity. A mom of two fabulous children, she lives in St Lazare, QC and is currently working on the sequel to Blaze of Glory.Quote from M. Garzon’s Facebook profile.
