A young girl’s life dealing with her family, and friends, but more importantly her passion for horses. Her adventures are very well planned out, and yet kept you in the story to want to turn that next page.
“Tea couldn’t risk the family harmony of my entire extended clan just to gratify her own desires; that would be appallingly selfish, and she didn’t want to risk alienating them, they were the only family—and only home—that she had. She turned the question over in her mind, but no matter what angle she viewed it from, the answer remained the same. Her only option was to learn to suppress her feelings.”
In Tea’s young life she was facing life’s challenges head on, and making her own decisions, but she seemed to be tossed if they were wrong or right. Her love for horses kept her driven in one direction though. I thought at first this book was just a story about horses, and I found out after a few pages into it that it wasn’t only about horses.
So many things the author would explain I could relate to when I was young or relate to what my granddaughter may have to go through soon. Even a few nights my husband had to have a late supper because I was reading, and I kept saying at the end of this page, at the end of this chapter, and well… they weren’t too late. I believe this book would be good for any young adult to any mother/grandmother to read, and thoroughly enjoy. The author had a way to pull you in with emotional thoughts, suspense and heartwarming scenes, but yet keep you on the edge of your chair. At times they were a bit complex, but as you read on you were back in a comfort zone at the author’s defining way of explaining a scene very pictorially.
Now, I don’t want to give too much away here, but this story.. well, let’s say Christmas would be a great way to open up a new world for your young adult in the home or relative/friend. Stocking stuffer? Definitely. Birthday present? Of course. Just because you care? Most assuredly. Enjoy… I did!
