I rarely cry when I read books, but this one got me going, I guess because it was so sad and also so sweet. The characters are real and lovable, I was rooting for them all the way. I'd definitely read Riding Lessons first. This sequel could stand on its own, but would be more meaningful after reading the previous book. Great writing from the author of Water for Elephants.

A great follow-up to "Riding Lessons". Just make sure you read them in order - there are references that won't make since unless you have already read "Riding Lessons".

I liked this book even better than the first one. This one starts up right where the first one left off, with Annemarie and Eva living at Mutti's house. Annemarie is giving lessons now and Eva is being her usual wild self. After a run-in with some trouble, Eva has a chance to go train with an Olympic trainer an hour away from the farm. At the first horse show they attend, Eva makes a bunch of mistakes and trouble starts to brew. Roger and his new wife are supposed to be at the horse show to watch Eva, but they aren't. I can't say much more about that because it would give the story away. Annemarie thinks Dan is going to propose on her 40th birthday, but when she opens her gift, she gets something that is unexpected. In the end, the whole family comes together to fight for someone that they truly love. I thought that this was a very wonderful book. If you liked the first, you will love the second one.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are three dimensional and the setting of horses and jumping is mixed with the feelings of a woman coming to terms with her life, her daughter and her lover. The main character is vulnerable, spunky and emotional which I really enjoyed.

I really enjoyed this. It's by the author of Water For Elephants, she writes really well. This story revolves around horses and is about a mother who was a competitive rider and her daughter who wants to ride in the Olympics. A love story is intertwined and the man is a vet involved in horse rescue. A really good story about a family and the inevitability of change.

This book was not well written. I was surprised how mundane and obvious the plot was and how unlikable the female lead. Disappointing.

I think this book is better than Riding Lessons, the first Annemarie Zimmer book. It has everything: drama, humor, romance. A thoroughly enjoyable read!
