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.

Jojo Moyes Latest Book

I loved her previous books and I would say this book was pretty predictable and ok. I'd have a hard time recommending it.

A drudgery to read/listen to

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story left much to be desired. Basically unlikeable main characters, little real action, way too much drivel about emotions! Poor character development-- they felt rather like cardboard characters dubbed by title of young horseman, neurotic child advocate lawyer with no clue about moving forward or backward or in any direction and hunky photographer who sort of floats along sort of involved but not really, American African American cowboy etc. etc. This is a very early J. Moyes and needed stronger editing. So in short -- nothing would have helped this book

Has The Horse Dancer turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not sure what real genre this is.....

Which scene was your favorite?


What character would you cut from The Horse Dancer?

Would suggest reading a later J. Moyes book and don't bother with any of the characters in this book.

Any additional comments?

The narrator did a great job with a very poorly written story. I would listen to her again. I stopped listening 6 hours in --- just could not listen to any more angst. And I asked for a credit refund.
