I couldn't put this book down. I also love horses, they were never mine to ride but living in a semi rural village there were plenty of fields with them in,

& strangely they always seemed to come to me. To them I told my secrets, they were my confidants, my comfort, & my only source of love. A lonely, deeply traumatized, oddball of a child in 1960's, 1970's, & up until 1984 when I married, I hadn't fitted in with the other kids. I desperately wanted a family, dogs, horses, & elephants! I got the family, dogs & cats, but the horses & elephants remain dreams, it's good to keep some.
I love how Jojo Moyes, through acknowledgements gives us readers some idea of the research & inspiration for her stories. The reality behind this one is tragically sad, but another part of it gives hope for the futures of so many young lives.
I couldn't help but hear Morgan Freeman's voice playing the art of one character! I hope he knows about the charity, he also loves horses.
