Confessions of a Mormon Jockey

When 9 year old Sonny Hancheck's parents are killed in a car accident, she is sent to live with her estranged (and very non-LDS) uncle in New York. Clueless about what to do with a kid, let alone a girl, Sonny's uncle takes her to the race track. What follows is nothing but the hand of the Lord setting Sonny on her path to destiny.

Twenty-year-old Sonny Hanchek is horse racing's Tim Tebow. She has spent the last 5 years rising through the ranks as a talented young jockey. Trainer's are starting to take notice, and Sonny's career is taking off at last. Yet, deep inside, Sonny feels a stronger calling to serve the Lord on a mission. Sonny must contend with the adrenaline rush of a thrilling stretch drive and the still small voice that tells her she must leave the world she so dearly loves.

It's been two years since Sonny left New York to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She wants to return to her career as a jockey, but many trainers have moved on and forgotten about the starlet. Through prayer and preservation, Sonny finds her way back to the stable of a lone trainer who still remembers her and somehow on the road to the Kentucky Derby and the ride of her life.

Confessions of a Mormon Jockey is Ann Hunter's first trilogy. Presenting an unlikely heroine into the colorful, and dangerous, world of a male-dominated sport, Ann delves into horse racing with no holds barred.

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father in Heaven"
