Publisher's Summary

When her reckless driving brought unimaginable tragedy, Maggie Roberts found herself in prison grieving for the loss of her son. During the course of her 10-year sentence, she found a renewed purpose working with retired Thoroughbred racehorses. But now she's faced with the transition back into society, starting over yet again and alone in the world - until she meets Gil Winters.

Gil is a single father seeking a new form of therapy for his wheelchair-bound son, Edward. Confined to his own prison of doubt and distrust, Gil still struggles daily with the memory of being abandoned by first his mother and then his drug-addicted ex-wife. But as he gets to know Maggie during his son's therapy sessions with her horses, the issues of trust and old wounds that haunt both Maggie and Gil begin to fade.

Interesting and satisfying

I very much enjoyed this story. The reality was felt in both good as well as heartbreaking situations. The narrator can make a book, and I enjoyed this narrator.

Great book

I really loved this book. The narrator did a good job and it was a feel good book. I like a book that doesn't have a lot of swearing and things that if my kids are in the car I would be embarrassed about and this had non of that!!

overall good but a letdown at the end

I do wish it kept going. I feel like the ending was too clipped when there was so much story still there

shallow

The characters were shallowly developed and the story extremely predictable. However, if you like horses and want to learn a few basics about natural horsemanship, you may enjoy this 'harlequin romance'if you're not looking for anything deep, engrossing or thought provoking. It kept me company while gardening.
