Even if you know nothing about horse jumping you will enjoy this book. Elizabeth Letts pays a lot of attention to details and lets the reader feel they are part of the story. She gives the background and nuance so we can appreciate the struggles and triumphs of a champion. I would have like to know this horse, what a wonderful story.
I was very impressed with the research that went into this book. It was very easy to understand and very logical. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know how the bible came to be written.
The book started a bit slow and I was worried it would be a tear jerker all the way. But to my great delight it brighten my day. I have loved and lost a few best friends and this gave me the peace I needed. A wonderful story for any dog or animal lover for that matter.
At first I thought the reader was a bit stiff but he was able to go from a German accent to a Welsh bough than into an English accent so I forgave the stiffness. The characters soon became real and I saw their lives as they must have been back then and how different each group thought.The book was able to explain the developments to start World War 1 and how it set up for the second War. All this in a very engaging way. I hope for a sequel,
