Four star Review of Rafferty Lincoln Loves… by Emily Williams
Those who enjoy horse stories will love Rafferty Lincoln Loves… but the story is more about loyalty, promises made and kept, bullying, secrets and rumors. These are issues that teens everywhere deal with. The characters were well-developed even though the story only covered a few months as they make new connections (not accepting that those are friendships) and care for a horse. Tension developed partly because they weren’t certain whether Minty was the missing racehorse that had been in the news. As the author states, proceeds from sales of this book go to the British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre, a worthy and appropriate cause.
