I did something in the second book that I wondered if readers would notice. It comes in a chapter called ‘The Step’ and only one person has ever said anything to me about it, when the horse in this photo takes a step backwards to me in trust. And everything changed.

Did anybody out there notice what else changed in the narrative in that moment?

Once a week we’re posting my thoughts on the message from each For The Sender chapter, making our way through both books and giving away a book autographed by the For The Sender family each time.

Here’s Chapter 4, Book 2. Tell us 1) what changed in the story when the horse took a step backward (hint: it’s one word), and 2) how you’ve taken a step forward by taking a step backward, and we’ll choose a post and send you a book autographed by the For The Sender family.
