Publisher's Summary

A quintessential Jojo Moyes novel about a lost girl and her horse, the enduring strength of friendship, and how even the smallest choices can change everything.

When Sarah's grandfather gives her a beautiful horse named Boo - hoping that one day she'll follow in his footsteps to join an elite French riding school, away from their gritty London neighborhood - she quietly trains in the city's parks and alleys. But then her grandfather falls ill, and Sarah must juggle horsemanship with school and hospital visits.

Natasha, a young lawyer, is reeling after her failed marriage: her professional judgment is being questioned, her new boyfriend is a letdown, and she's forced to share her house with her charismatic ex-husband. Yet when the willful 14-year-old Sarah lands in her path, Natasha decides to take the girl under her wing.

But Sarah is keeping a secret - a secret that will change the lives of everyone involved forever.

    "Not the best by JoJo Moyes, but still ok"

    Characters were good, narration good but storyline just dragged out to long. If ur a fan of the author it's worth a listen, if this is ur first JoJo book - try the others they are SO much better.

    "Great book"

    Great horse book but you can also enjoy it even if your not a horse person and I loved the ending of the book.
    Only criticism is they speak French in parts and do not translate it...

    "nice story about a girl and her horse"

    A marriage, a girl, and the power of trusting people. This story was also about determination even with the odds are not in your favor. A good read.

    "Ms Moyes does it again"

    Wonderful story about how lives can be changed with love and caring. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the 2 adults to come to their senses. Thankfully they did and it was a happy ending. I like books with happy endings!

    "The title interested me."

    It didn't start out as very gripping, but as the story went on it became more interesting. I only wish there had been more horse and less of the other side stories but hey, horse-aholic here, no apologies. It was a good book nonetheless and I would 'read' it again.

    Story
    "Great Narrator, Interesting Story, but Overly Melodramatic"

    Fiona Hardingham is such a terrific narrator! It's a pleasure to listen to her tell any story as she makes every character distinctive and adds the right bits of mood, inflection, tone, etc.

    This story is interesting. I felt myself rooting for a happy ending for the three main characters, and they are likable despite their flaws.

    But I was frustrated by the contrived melodrama. Some actions and choices didn't make sense, especially Sarah's. She asks for money, and money is offered to her, and a few other times she's asked if there's anything she needs, yet she never comes out and asks for the help she needs. It can't be pride else she'd never have asked for the other money. And if we are to accept she's just a messed up teenager who makes dumb choices: well, it doesn't really fit with the rest of her character. Ergo, melodrama. Contrived scenarios made more dramatic by frustrating illogical actions by the characters; the stuff of soap operas. Well everyone makes mistakes, and it may even be realistic for someone to make such dumb choices, I prefer to read about characters who act a bit more sensible so that a dramatic situation doesn't turn into this frustrating show of impetuousness.
