Well written story that slowly develops a wide range of characters, as well as doing an excellent job of incorporating the "gentle" ways of horse training. She clearly has done her research here and I look forward to reading her next book.

A very, very good book. I love the way it's written and you become very attached to the main character, Martha.

This book was a surprise, picked up by chance, and it is turning out to be a really excellent read. The characters are believable and the dialogue and descriptions are also realistic and well-written. Doesn't matter if you're a horse-person or not, this is an excellent book. Without being simplistic (good versus evil) or moralizing and without being all sappy or romantic, this is a story of a young woman who loves animals and breaks horses for ranchers. It takes place in the time of WW1 and the author simply tells a great story.

At first I didn't think this was much of a story however, I came to really like the characters especially Martha. It's lovely how the animals and the humans find ways to connect to each other.
