Mark Saha

Author Mark Sahaabout this book: How can two likable, earnest guys get themselves in so much hot water over a horse while making us laugh in the bargain? We don’t want to spoil the fun, but put aspiring Central California cutters Jim Harrison and Lees Estes in a dice cup along with Jim’s wife Francine, who is seriously considering divorcing Jim and has a low opinion of Lee. Add Lee’s short tempered girlfriend Sally, and for good measure throw in champion cutting horse Lady Joe who has gone missing from the Walker place on Lee’s watch. Shake well and roll the dice. The boys hit the road in this desperate misadventure that becomes an affectionate glimpse at the sport of cutting and a trenchant comment on the future of the horse in a world where it is no longer essential to everyday life. Goodreads says, “This sweet tale is both comic and heart-gripping!”

FROM THE REVIEWS:

• "Lady Joe, by Mark Saha, grabbed me on the first page and held me until the buzzer... It was quite a ride – no less than 78 points on my scorecard." [80 = a perfect score in cutting] — National Cutting Horse Association News

• "I couldn't help thinking about Huck [Finn] when in the first pages of Lady Joe, Lee Estes never even considers telling the truth about how he lost his boss's prized cutting horse…. The hilarious tale is told with Twainian humor and warmth as well as a bit of nostalgia." — Amazon

• "Saha's writing is as down to earth as his two lead characters, and his plot is inspired. Lady Joe is highly recommended." — Readers' Favorites

• "… great storytelling, sincere and believable characters." — Goodreads
