The story for most of the book is a very slow and rather uninteresting love story based on relationship between hero heoine and a horse In the beginning were slightly surreal overtones and if this had been developed a little I think it would have added interest.
However the finale gallopped along at a gripping pace and saved the book from oblivion.

I don t know if you would like this if you don t like horsesbut since I still do It s about a little race horse in Ireland and how he draws people together.
I had trouble getting into the story The first 5 chapters kept introducing new characters who s stories did not seem to go together It was hard wanting to care about the characters when you couldn t see a connection between them Once the connections were made, it was a great story I found myself cheering for the little horse that no one thought could do anything in the racing world.
EnjoyableOne pick though, the characters repeating themselves became a bit tiresome and like the repetitions were just to add extra words Simple light reading but still enjoyable
Absolutely brilliant Really enjoyed this book Not read one of Charlotte Bingham s for a while but I will now be catching up on the ones I haved missed Loved this horsey theme and enchantingly happy ending A feel good read not terribly complicated but very enjoyable.
