Preorder “Barbed: A Memoir” by Julie Morrison here


In this thoughtful debut, Julie Morrison explores what happens when you take a leap into the unknown and land in a saddle. Every hope and dream will be tested against a land where rocks are abundant, water is scarce, and love is the most unpredictable resource of all.


“A brave, bewildered would-be rancher, Morrison weaves a tale from filaments both fragile and tough as leather. Gulp this down!” –LISA SCHNEBLY HEIDINGER, author of The Journal of Sedona Schnebly

Standing at a professional crossroads, Julie Morrison decides to saddle up and start over. Her family’s ranch is on the brink of bankruptcy. While fighting for its future, she simultaneously seeks to salvage her marriage and rediscover her best self.

When you ride across the rock-strewn terrain of a family-owned horse and cattle business though, a gritty challenge awaits along the trail to every panoramic view. Entangled in the barbs of ranching and relationships, Julie will meet cold-hearted cowboys and funny farriers, learn how to ranch one-handed, and become an expert in assessing what’s essential.

This is a romance in which the objects of devotion are hard-working horses and iconic western vistas, where hope and horseshoes harmonize and help arrives from the most unlikely places. Julie’s journey of personal discovery will inspire readers to blaze their own trails to a future only they can create.
