Fantastic book by a wonderful author. Herriot always delivers, his way with humor and descriptive words, makes you long to visit his world. My mother read me these books when I was a child. I have loved and cherished them since.
Got this book for my horse-loving 2 year old daughter. She has learned so much about the different breeds of horses and styles of riding. She loves the whimsical pictures and bright colors. And she's learning her ABC's at the same time!
I wasn't so impressed with this book. It wasn't as spellbinding as Grisham's past books have been. Not bad, but it just didn't capture my attention like his last. I've collected all his past books, but chose to let this one go.
I really like this book. It's sad, but well written. You can feel the desperation of lonliness from both main characters. Her marriage isn't perfect, but she does do the right thing in staying with her husband and children. I don't condone cheating on your spouse, ever, but you kind of understand.
Love these books! They were recommended by my mother, and I was rather hesitant, because our tastes differ. I was so glad I decided to read them! Love Mr. Block's dry humor and wit throughout each book. Very well written.
