A Horse Called Lightning, A House of Clowns

Authored by Joyce Swann

"There are mysterious things happening in the night...."

During a chance summer storm, ten-year-old Joy and three-year-old Andy are sure their neighbor's horse has been killed after they see him struck by lightning. But the horse isn't dead--he just has a secret! Months later, on the darkest evening of the year, Joy and Lightning will brave a blizzard to save Joy's daddy when his truck is stuck in a snowdrift, and Joy and Andy will come to understand the mystery of the horse they call Lightning.

This story of God's provision for His children will delight children and parents alike!

When a family of clowns moves onto Joy and Andy's street and begins to entertain the residents, the entire town is delighted! But when the town's bank is robbed and the clowns suddenly disappear, Joy suspects that this troupe of entertainers is really a gang of thieves! Now she has to think quickly to bring the gang to justice and teach the whole town about the consequences of choices.
