This was a fun read! I actually read the entire book on the same day it arrived from PBS. A good historical romance with some surprises. If you love horses and history thrown together with love, then this book will not disappoint.
Excellent, well-crafted love story. The characters are expertly drawn and the tale is one you can't put down until the end. This is the second in the Calhoun Trilogy. The wonderful main characters from the first book in the series, "The Charm School," also appear in intermittently in this book. I loved it.
It falls in the same category as the Horse Whisperer, but definitely a different novel/story line.
At one point I thought things were going too smooth...so much book left... I didn't see the twist it took. So cool! I liked the way it took me by surprise.
It was a quick read.
