Mustang Jessie is the first book in a series that is intended to inspire readers to live well and serve others. The book can be read as a standalone novel, BUT if you have an upper elementary child in your life, you will also want to check out Mustang Jessie’s companion novel for kids: Mustang Macy. The two books contain a shared storyline, with the same characters, setting, and timeline. An adult and a child can read the two books together and connect over the themes of forgiveness and serving others. Be on the lookout for book two in each series in Winter 2018.
Elementary teacher Jess Washburn has a great life in the city: a job at a top suburban school, access to great culture and nightlife, and a feisty best friend. But when her school cuts staff in the middle of summer, the only position she can find is in the last place she wants to go: her small hometown.
When Jess left Hanley after high school, she made it clear she was leaving for good. Now she has to face the mother she can’t forgive, the childhood nemesis she can’t avoid, and the memories she can’t forget.
Will she last the nine months before she can escape back to the city? Or will her connection with her new students, an unexpected opportunity to use her skills outside the classroom, and an attractive Marine-turned-coach convince her to deal with the past and embrace her new life?
