Beschreibung

From the New York Times bestselling author of Pay It Forward comes an uplifting and poignant novel about friendship, trust, and facing your fears.

No longer tolerating her husband's borderline abuse, Faith escapes to her parents' California beach house to plan her next move. She never dreamed her new chapter would involve befriending Sarah, a fourteen-year-old on the run from her father and reeling from her mother's sudden and suspicious death.

While Sarah's grandmother scrambles to get custody, Faith is charged with spiriting the girl away on a journey that will restore her hope: Sarah implores Faith to take her to Falkner's Midnight Sun, the prized black mare that her father sold out from under her. Sarah shares an unbreakable bond with Midnight and can't bear to be apart from her. Throughout the sweltering summer, as they follow Midnight from show to show, Sarah comes to terms with what she witnessed on the terrible night her mother died.

But the journey is far from over. Faith must learn the value of trusting her instincts—and realize that the key to her future, and Sarah's, is in her hands.

    I enjoyed the book but it wasn't my favorite. I absolutely loved Allie and Bea, Heaven Adjacent and Leaving Blythe River and this book just didn't give me the same feelings. It was a great book, I just didn't love it. Sarah and Faith's relationship reminded me a little bit of Allie and Bea's. Loved parts of the story and most of the characters. I hate to say that I never loved Sarah. At times I just didn't like her. Would someone allow their granddaughter to go off with a complete stranger? I would have enjoyed learning more about Faith and her life. Enjoyed reading about the horses. Love the writing style. I always feel like I'm part of Catherine Ryan Hyde's books. Faith recently left her husband. She ends up at her father's beach house and befriends Sarah. Sarah is a fourteen year old girl who recently lost her mom and her horse. Her mom died and her dad sold the horse. Throughout the summer, Faith and Sarah spend there time getting Midnight, the horse, ready for shows and to be sold. Midnight is a very special horse and pretty much only likes when Sarah rides her. Faith and Sarah end up helping each.I did enjoy the book but had a hard time with the story. Some parts became anticlimactic, especially with Sarah's dad and Faith's ex-husband. Sarah was fourteen but at times I thought I was reading about a nine year old with the way she acted. I know she had a traumatic like with her mom suddenly and suspiciously dying. I think she grieved more for the horse than her mom. I'm glad Faith and Sarah found each other because they were exactly what they both needed. I definitely recommend the book and can't wait to read more books by the author.Thanks to NetGalley, Lake Union Publishing and the author, Catherine Ryan Hyde, for a free electronic ARC of this novel.

    This is a beautifully written novel about family and love and helping other people when you can. It's about a woman and a teenager with major problems that learn to help each other understand their lives and search for happier times. Faith has left her mentally and psychological abusive husband and is hiding in her parents cottage on the Pacific shore. Sarah is a 14 year old girl, living with her grandmother and hiding from her father after the suspicious death of her mother. They meet and seem to recognize the need in each other. Sarah's grandmother asks Faith to take Sarah somewhere while she works to get custody. They go to the horse farm where her beloved horse - Midnight - is stabled. Her father had jut sold Midnight to pay his gambling debts which further devastates Sarah. Sarah and Midnight have a strong bond and he preforms dressage with her better than with anyone so she starts helping (reluctantly) the man who bought Midnight. As the summer continues, Faith and Sarah both realize that they are stronger than they thought - but are they strong enough to face the people who brought them so much pain??The characters are wonderful and well written - as with all of Catherine Ryan Hyde's characters. The reader is pulled into their lives and emotions and I can promise a few tears along their journeys. Along with a great story with believable characters, there is a lot of information about horses and dressage and the horse show circuits. I loved it.Thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own.

    Catherine Ryan Hyde's books haven't disappointed me yet, and this one is no exception. I enjoyed the characters and the setting. How nice to see Faith's willingness to help teen-aged Sarah, whom she barely knows, avoid her abusive father and reunite with her beloved horse. Lovely settings, and some nice lessons about horses and the sport of dressage as well. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable read for me. I listened to parts of this and the narration in the audio version is excellent.
    My thanks to Netgalley and Lake Union Publishing for providing a copy for an unbiased review.
