Today I have something VERY special to share with you, and something that I have been waiting to reveal!!!! As you know I absolutely adore Emily Williams, especially after reading her wonderful book Letters to Eloise. Not only is she one of the best authors of our time, but her writing is absolutely exceptional. Well today I have the cover reveal for her next book she has written for charity – Rafferty Lincoln Loves!
I have already read this book so I can tell you it is WONDERFUL, and the cover is just perfect! Without further ado – are you ready?? Here it is:
Isn’t it wonderful!!!! I absolutely love it, and when you read it you’ll see just how perfect it is for the book! Emily has written this book to support the British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre (which you can find here to support and donate!), which is such a wonderful cause. Emily you’re an angel!
She also asked me to use my Journalism skills to help her with a part of the novel at the start, and the article I helped her to write is actually used on the cover as part of the origami horse! WHAT AN HONOUR – Emily you are way too kind and I love you forever!!!! One of the biggest honours I’ve ever had, to work with one of my favourite authors, and such an amazing friend.
Synopsis of Rafferty Lincoln Loves…
Rafferty Lincoln doesn’t like horses. Not one bit. But when the popular high school girl of his dreams, Liberty Ashburn, pulls him into a world of lead ropes and horse brushes, who is he to say no?
Except this isn’t any old horse. This is the missing racehorse, Profit’s Red Ridge. The horse Rafferty and three of his friends are hiding from the world. And Liberty Ashburn isn’t just any ordinary high school girl. How far will Rafferty go to win her over?
An intense, witty and powerful coming of age story with startling consequences.
About the charity ‘The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre’
The proceeds from the novel ‘Rafferty Lincoln Loves…’ will be donated to The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre.
BTRC is dedicated to improving and promoting the welfare of retired race horses through education, retraining and suitable rehoming in order to ensure that our Thoroughbreds have a rewarding and valuable life after their racing careers have ended.
Each year thousands of horses leave racing, some because they reach the natural end of their career and others through injury or lack of ability. Established in 1991, The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre was the UK’s first charity dedicated to ex-racehorse welfare, retraining, rehoming and protection for life.
What Emily has to say about supporting the BTRC!
‘I am thrilled to have written this novel for the BTRC and to be donating the proceeds to such an important and dedicated charity for the welfare of retired racehorses.’ Emily Williams
