Step Right Up: How Doc and Key Taught the World About Kindness
by Donna Janell Bowman
William Doc Key had a special way with animals.
Growing up enslaved in Tennessee, Doc was sent to plantations around the state to care for sick and wounded animals. When the Civil War ended and Doc was freed, he began to dream of breeding a winning racehorse. But those dreams were dashed when his colt was born weak and sick. Although many people would have euthanized the colt, Doc nursed him back to health and named him Jim.
Noticing a level of curiosity and eagerness in the horse, Doc began teaching Beautiful Jim Key first to recognize letters, then to read, write, add subtract, and more. Doc soon took his talented horse on the road, spreading a message of patience and kindness, over cruelty to all animals.

The Last Chance Cafe
by Linda Lael Miller
Seeking shelter from the storms of life, a woman who is down on her luck finds an unexpected refuge at The Last Chance Cafe.
With acres of land and a house that have been in his family for generations, rancher Chance Qualrough has deep roots in Primrose Creek. Now, at the local diner, he is about to encounter his future. Perhaps it was fate that brought Hallie O'Rourke and her two young daughters to the Last Chance Cafe. More likely, it was the blinding Nevada snowstorm and a broken-down truck that forced the desperate single mother inside. Hallie couldn't know that she would find not just a hot meal and a few hours' rest, but the start of a new life. And Chance doesn't know that Hallie is fleeing a danger so threatening she dares not ask anyone for help. Even his kind offer of his aunt's house as lodging seems like too great a risk for Hallie.
But her fierce protection of her children wins out, and she knows she has no choice but to accept Chance's invitation. Slowly, as Chance and Hallie break down barriers of fear and doubt, trust takes hold. Hope replaces despair. And a fragile attraction grows into an undeniable passion. From the moment she took a chance with a handsome stranger in a country diner, everything Hallie has ever believed about home and family is seen through new eyes. But Hallie can never forget that just one careless word could bring back the past with full force, and could destroy all that she has made her own.
