Mitzy Tait-Zellers' Rim-Fyre and the Stones of Time is not a book that would usually catch my attention. I am not a horse person although I wish I was, and I usually refrain from picking up a book that is in any part set in the past - in this case the 1880's.

However, I am a huge fan of Canadian literature and enjoy getting my hands on new books from authors across the country. Therefore, albeit out of my preferred genre, this book grabbed my attention and I decided to give it a try. And it didn't let me down.

The story, based in Saskatchewan, revolves around the main character, Serena and her stallion Rim-Fyre. After a ride through the prairies, Rim-Fyre jumps through a set of mysterious stones, which lands him and his rider back to the year 1887. Their sudden disappearance not only sends Serena on a quest to get back to her present life, but also to seek out her destiny through spirituality. Tait-Zeller's writing leaves nothing to be questioned as the story is seamlessly woven together. With many ups and downs and different character introductions throughout the 225 - page adventure, "Rim-Fyre and the Stones of Time" catches and holds your attention until the final page is read. Intertwined in the story are some unexpected, yet enjoyable parts that pull you deeper into the plot line, but the main focus stays on the bond between Serena and Rim-Fyre and trusting one's journey through life.

I had trouble emersing myself into the first chapter as I have no horses in my life and the chapter was the introduction of Serena and Rim-Fyre's relationship, something I can't relate to. However, it was easy to get more involved as the chapters progress as the writing style of Tait-Zeller is very inviting to all readers. I have a great appreciation for how intensely Tait-Zeller focused on the bond between Serena and her horse and the way the book was written. It creates an incredibly attractive read to those who don't deal with this beautiful animal on a day-to- day basis.

Tait-Zeller also pulls the reader back in time with Serena by providing just enough information on the period and activities that went on, in a such a way that you don't feel overwhelmed by it but rather engaged in the moments.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and absolutely recommend it. When I would have to put it down, I couldn't stop thinking about what was to happen next, which is always a sign of a good read!

I enjoyed the characters, the plot and I really enjoyed the bond between Serena and her horse. It gave me a bit of insight to the love of these incredible animals. And now, all I can do is wait and hope that there will be more work like this from Mitzy Tait-Zeller in the future!
