The Horse Dancer: A Novel by Jojo Moyes

I just finished listening to this book on Overdrive.  I loved it.  At first, I wasn’t so sure…but kept pushing through and loved it.  It helped that I had to work in my DC area office 3 days in a row therefore had almost 3 hours in my car – 3 days in a row!  I am fortunate to be able to work from home, or an additional office closer to home, rather than the main office in a DC suburb.  BUT, the only negative, I don’t get through nearly as many books when I work from home or the local office.

The Amazon synopsis:

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 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 let-down, and she’s forced to share her house with her charismatic ex-husband. Yet when the willful fourteen-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.

I seriously loved this book, loved the characters, and could see a sequel being good!  JoJo, please do that 🙂  Thanks!  It would make a great movie! OK, seriously, I was googling looking for some images, and guess what, there is a movie coming out!!! YAY!  OK never mind, it is a different Horse Dancer movie, not based on this book, or at least none of the character names ring bells…

This book made me wish I had been a horse person.  I don’t even know if I have ever ridden a horse.  I have several friends who are “horse people” meaning they have them etc.  The relationship in this book between Sarah and her horse is lovely.

Have you read any good books lately?  Please let us know in the comments.
