Mixed feelings - loved half of it, bored by half
on 4 April 2011
I'm not a horse lover, but found myself really enjoying the parts of the story about Sarah and her horse. I was interested in the main story about Natasha and her estranged husband, but found the sections about her job overly long and boring. Half way through the book I started skipping the stuff about her job, but at the same time Sarah's story became even more compelling. By the time that story thread reached its conclusion I was fully involved and very emotional, and found the resolution welcome and satisfying. Unfortunately I then found the epilogue rather stilted. All in all, a mixed bag, and I can't fully recommend this book.
