The Destiny of Sunshine Ranch by T.M. Gaouette

The confidence of the devoted is challenged, but an even deeper understanding of God and His love are revealed.

10 year old Benedict has been moved from one foster home to another, and he's hated every one. When he arrives at Sunshine Ranch, he doesn't bother unpacking. What's the point? But his new foster parents and siblings are not what he's become used to. David and Martha Credence strive to instill love and Christian values in their family, inspiring hope in each child. Benedict is not into "religion," but Sunshine Ranch is the home he's secretly been yearning for. Still, he fears it's all just a little too good to be true, and his sentiments are validated when he learns that they may lose Sunshine Ranch. Can the Credence children help save the Ranch? Will faith keep them together? Or will Benedict's dream be shattered? 



“I read this book in 6th grade and I loved it! Our teacher at the time knew the author and so we got to meet her which was very cool..”

“Wonderful book for pre-teens especially. Brings back the kindness and respect so missing in our society with a story applicable to this age, and yet my son could not put the book down once he began reading it. Highly recommended!!!” 

~Amazon review


“A story that is both heartbreaking and heartwarming about foster children and a place where ten of them found a home in which love and faith abounded. As a former foster parent, this story really touched my heart and made me wish I could give these fictional foster children a big hug! I recommend this book to everyone with a heart for children. You will never forget it!
