But can she continue to put work first, maintain amicable relations with her soon-to-be ex and parent a wilful troubled teenager at the same time?

Even if you’re not horsey I think you would still enjoy this book as it describes the way of life in such a way not to alienate readers. Fiona Hardingham is outstanding in her narration, providing each character with his and her own distinctive voice and personality while communicating a difficult story. In a stable under railway arches, lives Boo, a Selle Francais he bought as a colt for Sarah; together they train him and he gives them purpose. I think if you weren’t into horses that you would still find it a great read as it is so well written. I started listening to books rather than reading as I found I just didn’t ever have the time or the inclination to sit and read anymore.Definitely read if you like horses, or even just enjoyed the dressage this summer (although the airs above the ground are rarely performed outside displays by La Cadre Noir and The Spanish Riding School of Vienna). Also on that train ride, she swears she saw a horse, rearing gracefully while a little girl commanded him from the ground. They inhabit a small flat in London and house Baucher, known as Boo in an urban stableyard run by Cowboy John, an American ex-pat who followed a woman to England but never left. There is kind of a lot going on in this book, and some of the details we don't learn until very close to the end when some important parts of the past are finally revealed.

In parts of the book it shows that Sarah will do anything to keep Boo and achieve her dream of riding in Saumar. Plus she had had three miscarriages in four years; why wouldn’t Mac prefer some young fertile beauty to her? Moyes is pretty good at concluding with satisfying endings for the most part, loose ends tied up and issues resolved, even if this is for the worst. What binds all of them together, however is Boo, the most fabulous horse who Sarah loves unconditionally. The Horse Dancer tells the story of Sarah, a fourteen year old girl with a passion for horse riding which stems from her grandfather, Henri Lachapelle, a former pupil at Le Cadre Noir, a prestigious academy for horsemanship in Saumur, France.For me I was only able to have a horse when I could pay for it myself so, knowing I had to have a decent job to pay the livery, and basic care costs; I knuckled down at college but didn’t go to University. There are times when you want to throttle all of them but then later want to applaud them for what’s truly in their hearts.

I certainly didn't anticipate enjoying this novel as much as I did and I think fans of Jojo Moyes work will feel the same. Sarah's grandfather has been a masterful rider in his own day and he passed his love of horses on to Sarah. Cowboy John ran the urban stables where Boo lived, he seemed kind although a bit quirky and his character added to the stables peculiarity as a little haven hidden from the rest of the world in the middle of central London. Unable to have a horse when I was a child, it was a dream that I focused on, something which got me through the bullying and challenges at school.Men för mig - ah, det var en fröjd att få läsa en hästbok igen, då det senast i princip vad böckerna om Sigge. As someone who has horses featuring largely within my own life, I don't always enjoy reading books about horses or with horses featured, mainly because lack of knowledge, and therefore incorrect content, on the authors part annoys the heck out of me!

Tash also had a devasting situation at work, in which a child for whom she had advocated may have turned out to be a criminal. At first I was not sure there really was such a thing as Le Cadre Noir, but sure enough there is, and I was surprised that I had never heard of it before reading this book. My story isn’t the same as Mecca or Sarah, but many of my weekends were spent helping out at my local riding school. In a hidden corner of London, Henri Lachapelle is teaching his granddaughter and her horse to defy gravity, just as he had done in France, fifty years previously. Meanwhile Natasha a children’s lawyer, along with her husband Mac of whom she recently separated from crosses paths with Sarah after her grand father had fallen ill and ends up taking her under her wing.Finale non troppo verosimile (con la scampagnata in Francia…) ma molto, molto dolce, molto alla Moyes per intenderci e io ho adorato questa cosa… perché è questa la Moyes che voglio! This is told as a flashback and shows how Henri is in disgrace at Le Cadre Noir for fighting with another horseman, someone who was insulting of Florence and wanted to humiliate Henri infront of everyone out of jealousy and spite. But when he meets Florence, it’s love at first sight and he gives it all up to be with her in England. Like there were just a few other people in the world who spoke his language and all of them lived in that one place” (p. I became very annoyed with her and did not care nearly as much about her storyline as I did about Sarah's, even though the two threads were eventually completely entangled.
