After reading True Colors by Kristin Hannah, I was really excited to read another of her books. I was especially excited when I saw this one — about a woman who is in a horseback riding accident.
I was anticipating another novel like True Colors, where horses figured into the story pretty strongly. I was somewhat disappointed on that end. It was more about her husband than her, and other than the accident at the beginning and the occasional mention throughout the book, the horses didn't actually figure into the story very much.
Even so, it was a compelling novel, and another by this author that I had a hard time putting down. I finished it in just under two days! It's a story of discovery, in a sense, about the mistakes people make when they are young, and how they change (or don't change!) as they get older.
Kristin Hannah is one of my new favorite authors, and although I didn't like this as much as the others of hers that I've read lately, I do think her novels are worth checking out!
