Prologue

Let me present to you the founder of the Loewe Legacy. It’s a young woman and her name is Kate. She has been living in Appaloosa Plains all her life, and it was here where she developed her love for horses.

September 1999, Appaloosa Plains


Kate grew up in an orphanage. What happened to her parents is not known… On her 18th birthday she was allowed to choose to go her own way or stay in the orphanage and help out in the kitchen. As she did not have any place to go, she decided to stay and help…

At first, she thought that she would remain there for some months, at most for a year and then finally move on with her own life. Unfortunately, the director of the orphanage died of old age and all the children begged Kate to stay with them. Kate was really moved, because for whom loves children it is difficult to deny anything from them. After the funeral, Kate signed up for the role of the director and as long as she was the only candidate she won the competition. Kate remained in the orphanage for the next 10 years.

During the years Kate made many friends among the horsemen and also among professional jockeys. She learned a lot about horses, how to care about them, how to train them and also how to ride them well. Many people tried hard to talk her into the purchase of her own horse, her best friend even offered her one of his horses for free, but Kate always answered that her place was in the orphanage among the kids… However, she knew very well that her real place was with the horses, only she did not want to say it out loud.

Time was passing and eventually all the children grew up. It has never happened before that the orphanage would be so empty. By the time only two little brothers remained, Kate has been forced to close it down. The major of the town suggested it, because a young rich businessman donated a lot of money to the town for the construction of a new, modern building for children without families. And so the old orphanage was closed down. The little twins did not have anywhere to go, so the major entrusted them to the care of one of the nuns upon her request. The nun, Mary Graham, was a kind older woman who has loved these two boys ever since the moment they came to the orphanage as babies. When the town managed to sell the orphanage to a local farmer, the money was given to Mary and the boys as a compensation. It wasn’t much, but enough for all of them to buy a small house.

Kate Loewe was finally free. She packed her few things, emptied her money-box and moved away from Appaloosa Plains. She came to Monte Vista when she was almost 30 years old, about time to find a man and start a family… and this is the moment when the story begins!

  1. Your banner picture is amazing! I love how you are using this theme, with the static first page with all the links for the story, it looks great.

    I am so excited to have found your blog through Susan (Echo Weaver). Kate sounds like quite a kind and loyal person, and I’m looking forward to the horses.

    • Thank you, Shannon, for your kind words!

      I am very happy you discovered my blog, because there is nothing better than finding out that a new person started reading my story 🙂 I changed the layout of the home page only recently 🙂 I’m constantly thinking about making my blog visually pleasing and efficient at the same time!

      You are completely right about Kate. She’s a very kind person. Hope you’ll have fun reading about the Loewes. I’m looking forward to your feedback! Oh, and remember the nun and the twin boys… 😉

  2. I immediately wanted to know more about Kate, this young woman who put her happiness and chance for love and a family on hold to take care of the children in the orphanage. This takes a special person. I’m glad she will finally have the ability to do so in Monte Vista. Maybe she’ll get a chance to do more with horses. I’ve never actually owned a horse in game. I’ve had Appaloosa Plains but I haven’t spent much time there. I know though you can have a horse in any world. I’ll have to try it out sometime soon. I’m looking forward to reading more. BTW, I love your beautiful banner. It’s a fabulous photo of Monte Vista.

      Monte Vista is indeed a beautiful town. The screenshots taken there always look pretty. I’m happy to hear that you like the founder of my legacy. Later on in the story, Kate will be surrounded by horses… and family as well. I’m quite slow on updates so it won’t take you so long to catch up 😉

    • Thanks! I really enjoy creating backstories for my characters. I’m currently nearing the end of the 3rd generation, but don’t worry, since I’m very slow on updates you’ll be all caught up in no time. I hope you’ll have fun with the Loewes! I’m looking forward to going back through the old chapters with you ^_^

    • Hello Lola! Welcome to the Loewe Legacy!

      I’ve been seeing you around as well for a while now, it’s great to see you’ve found the time and interest to read my story!

      I apologize for not answering all your comments earlier, hopefully I’ll find some time to do so tonight when I come back home from work 😉

      • Feel free to call me Jowita if you want. Lola is a nickname only 🙂
        Yes, I just was busy with other things, that’s all and I’m glad to be here finally, even if I’m a bit late to the party.
        I was only wondering if my comments got stuck or something, because I saw one from Sepreviva and was wondering if you didn’t accept me or I turned out to be spam or something. That just bothered me that I comment and it ends up in spam. Fortunately, they are here, so that is good.
        I hope it doesn’t bother you, I leave a comment on each post I read, that’s my usual routine when I catch up, so this turns out to be a lot. I have some free time now, so I read a bunch of posts daily.Halfway through gen. 2 at the moment and really enjoying it!

        • Oh okay, I’ll call you Jowita then 😉

          You’re definitely not late to the party! I’m only at the end of Gen 3 and since I’m very slow on updates you’ll be all caught up before I get the chance to publish the next episode, LOL. I am truly sorry it took me so long to get to your comments!!! They didn’t finish in spam, I just couldn’t find the time to sit down and read them all…

          I’m so very happy you’re enjoying the Loewes, I’ll do my best to answer all your comments as soon as I can. Don’t worry about anything, comments really don’t bother me, on the contrary! I’m just probably not used to getting so many of them in such a short period of time 🙂

          Thank you for reading & commenting!
