I hung on every word of this novel. I loved the narration, her animated voice was perfect for each character. The story line was well woven. Jojo did a fabulous job with the horse terminology. Being an avid dressage rider, I will suffer through a lot if it is horse related, but I never found the horse parts cliche. I even got my husband hooked on the second half after he started listening. This is a true coming of age novel for all ages!

(By Carol, not Mark.) I listen to LOTS of audio books, and this is simply THE best I've ever heard, the first I've ever felt compelled to comment on. The narrator is superb, and the storyline mesmerizing; I acutally took it to bed with me a couple of evenings because I was simply unable to turn it off!
The characters are fully developed and fresh,and the horse angle authentic. The author's commentary at the end about the origins of the story is the frosting on the cake. Listen to this book!
(Now I'm going to go purchase a hard copy so I can read it for myself!)

This was one of the best books I have downloaded for a while. JoJo Moyes never disappoints. Every book is different, and this is definitely one of her best. Highly recommended even if you aren't into horses.If you have read JoJos' books before then you will not be dissapointed. If you are new to her books then this is a great place to discover her.

Jojo Moyes once again draws realistic characters who have passions and foibles. This one explores human relationships and those between a girl and her horse. In this book you are drawn to Sarah and how she trains her horse in classical equitation. Whilst you are focusing and empathising with Sarah and her horse you are emotionally caught up with her home-life. Very enjoyable. My walks got longer as I wanted to know what would happen next and then of course came the downer when it had finished.

The story was wonderful however the character that played the male voices ruined the story and I believe did not portray the personality written in the words. It made me not want to listen at all. However the story line was so wonderful i kept going back.

A mildly interesting, wildly implausible story, with 2-dimensional characters who perform with such moronic predictability that they are constantly surprised by what happens around them. A narrator who takes verbal stereotyping to the next level in her quest to put some life into the book’s inhabitants.
