Melody Lynn Hanson loved every aspect of her life, and at sixteen, she thought she was at the top of her game. She spent countless hours in some capacity or another doing the one thing that brought her the most joy; training, riding, and competing with her horse, Romeo. That is, until she made one careless mistake which permanently altered her life's passion.
After the accident, Melody felt she was incapable of moving on. She withdrew from everyone and everything, so when a new horse was introduced to their farm, she was less than thrilled that she had to be the one taking care of it. Little did she know; the new horse was carrying enough baggage of his own.
Melody's story will take you on a journey through the challenges she is forced to face and the triumphs she inevitably experiences; but first, she must learn to forgive herself so she can love again.

About the Author

Julie M. Moraine (Franklin) was born in Columbus, Ohio, while her father, Robert, was aboard a U.S. Naval ship during the Vietnam War. He learned of the birth of his daughter via Morse code.
A month after her birth, she traveled with her mother, T. Jean Franklin (Hillmer) and older brother, Scott, to Oahu, Hawaii, where they lived on the naval base for several years. When she turned four, her father had completed his final overseas tour, so they were transferred to the White Sand Missile Range Naval Base in New Mexico. A year and a half later, they moved back to the Central Ohio area.
Julie loves just about everything Ohio has to offer, especially The Ohio State Buckeye’s College Football Team!
Julie’s roots were planted firmly in Buckeye soil when she met and married the love of her life, David Moraine. He was a young handsome OSU college student in his sophomore year. He minored in Dairy Science and planned to major in large animal Veterinary Medicine, but after the birth of their first child, Benjamin, both Dave and Julie began working for Julie’s father at Town and Country Technical Services, a small telecommunications business. A few years later, David bought into the company and became his father-in-law’s business partner. They also bought a small ninety-six acre farm near St. Louisville, Ohio, where they raised their two sons Benjamin and Corey, red and white Pulled Herefords, chickens, and hogs.
Eleven years later, after the birth of their daughter, Megan they sold the farm and moved sixteen miles south. It was then that they were introduced to their first equine, the neighbors’ Shetland pony named Bart. Two years after they moved to their new home they had another daughter, Bailey. Both of their daughters were bitten by the horse bug, so Julie spent countless hours driving to and from horseback riding lessons and horse shows. Though they were costly and time consuming, Julie said she wouldn’t have changed any of it.
She recently retired from her husband’s data and telecommunications business where she oversaw every aspect of payroll, accounts receivable, and accounts payable. She said it was time. She wanted to focus on her youngest daughter’s last year of high school, spend more time writing, and a lot more time enjoying her friends, her parents, husband, children, and grandchildren.
