From the New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars, a novel about a lost girl and her horse, the enduring strength of friendship, and how even the smallest choices can change everything
When Sarah’s grandfather gives her a beautiful horse named Boo—hoping that one day she’ll follow in his footsteps to join an elite French riding school, away from their gritty London neighborhood—she quietly trains in city’s parks and alleys. But then her grandfather falls ill, and Sarah must juggle horsemanship with school and hospital visits.
Natasha, a young lawyer, is reeling after her failed marriage: her professional judgment is being questioned, her new boyfriend is a let-down, and she’s forced to share her house with her charismatic ex-husband. Yet when the willful fourteen-year-old Sarah lands in her path, Natasha decides to take the girl under her wing.
But Sarah is keeping a secret—a secret that will change the lives of everyone involved forever.
Highly recommend this book .. excellent storyline
I enjoyed this book so much! As a former rider, the technical parts dealing with dressage and haute école were very enjoyable. The book balances the stories of four characters beautifully, and I found each one engaging. Maybe I should say five to include the brave and loyal Boo! Highly recommended for a good read!
The Horse Dancer
An extraordinary writer that breaks my heart, puts me on edge, then puts me back together again. Another wonderful, heart wrenching book.
