5.0 out of 5 stars The Saddle Daddy Rode is a gem! 25 Dec. 2011
By Steve Mathisen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an expertly crafted short story by a gifted author. I have been a subscriber to her blog [...] for some time and have enjoyed her writing tips. One of the first things I read on my new Kindle was this short story and it made my eyes well up with tears.
In the few words this story is crafted in, we are introduced to Lail, her father Walt and the life they have lived on their ranch. It is a tale well told of a daughters love for her father, his love for her and the way he passes on his faith in the Lord by the example he set living his life each day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made me cry almost from the start 2 Oct. 2012

I felt from the very beginning like I was his daughter, seeing through her eyes, feeling through her heart. It is inspirational but not preachy, touching, and from the moment the story begins, you feel the love father and daughter shared. My only regret is that it wasn't longer...but I think it is perfect just the way it is.

Twenty-two year old Lail McGurney's beloved father is dying of advanced Leukemia. She struggles with her emotions as she finds the faith and strength to say goodbye. Told in rich detail by a talented author, you don't want to miss this story.
3.0 out of 5 stars Nice but predictable 1 Dec. 2013

A sweet story, but a bit hackneyed and utterly predictable. Having read K.M.'s blog posts for some time, I was expecting more.

Great short story. Wish it was longer, but the author fed me just enough to let my mind fill in the blanks
