Very well written, the first part of the book on Ann's family in Estonia read as if you were almost there at the time, and waited impatiently for the next page.
The second half of the book - relating to Ann's equestrian history, was a interesting and funny read - I am not a animal lover, but warmed to the stories of Ann's horsey antics.
A lovely,interesting and exciting read.
The first part I found fascinating. Anne's determination to find out about her mother's family and the lengths she went to get information is inspiring. In many ways it is like a fairy story. A British soldier brings back from the war a young woman with no papers and no knowledge of the whereabouts of her family. He marries her they have one daughter.
The joy of eventually being successful in her quest and the meeting with her aunt and her family is so evident and then regular visits to Estonia for the author and her husband to get to know her long lost family and her heritage. Truly inspiring.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Seeking out the influences that shape and transform lives, the writer captures the trials and tribulations in a disarming and personal style that draws us in and allows us to share in some of the unknown aspects that formed part of the twentieth century's landscape.
What once may have been lost to us is lovingly revived and, in reading this personal account, we can be enriched in our understanding of a particular type of integrity and of conduct under testing times. It is a book to delve into and enjoy.
The second part chronicles Ann's love of horses and her adventures with them.
I have known Ann for some time and although some of the latter stories I knew, it was great to get the 'back story' of before I knew her.
Overall a good story, easy to read and waiting for the next installment!
A compelling love story, heart-warming to read that good and happiness can come out of the most dire circumstances. The author has obviously written it from personal knowledge and understanding and this shines through.
A story that will be enjoyed by young and old alike as it portrays a journey throughout most of the lives of 3 people and the ups and downs they followed on their path through life.
