    One thought on “Riding Babyface”

    1. The year is 1957. Some things about life in the 50’s were quite different than in today’s world. For instance, in the 50s, $1.00 bought you a movie ticket, popcorn and candy and you had money left over. But some things never change, no matter the time period.

    3. This story is a sweet coming of age tale set in 1957 - a simpler time, when growing up wasn’t as fast but learning life’s lessons were just as hard. Read full review in the 2016 March issue of InD'tale Magazine.

    4. In 1957, fourteen-year-old Winna Beckman comes-of-age riding her not-so-nice horse, Babyface, and learns lessons about love and true friendship.
