Publisher's summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Giver of Stars, a 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.

Critic reviews

“There's something in it everyone will love... The Horse Dancer is a heartfelt, gut-wrenching, emotional novel filled with moments of joy, excitement, and plenty of tears. In her signature style, Moyes has woven a complicated story about unforgettable characters you'll contemplate long after you finish reading...a multi-generational story that will tug at heart strings and leave everyone reaching for the tissues, and for a hug. Trust me, this is the kind of book you'll want to share with the ones you love." (Bustle)

“Fans of Moyes (Paris for One and Other Stories, 2016, etc.) know what to expect from her books - big emotions, quirky characters, and a few tears - and this one delivers on all counts.” (Kirkus Reviews)

"With a touch of adventure, Moyes offers a lovely comment on the importance of discipline, love, and persistence in our relationships." (Booklist)
