The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans
He is the stuff of legend. His voice can calm wild horses and his touch heal broken spirits. For secrets uttered softly into pricked and troubled ears, such men were once called Whisperers. Now Tom Booker, the inheritor of this ancient gift is to meet his greatest challenge.
My thoughts on this book:
Grace was riding her horse Pilgrim in the snow which resulted in an accident–a horrible accident that cost someone their life. Both Grace and her horse are physically and mentally damaged from the accident and it will take some time for both to heal. Her mother, Annie, finds a man by the name of Tom Booker who begins working with Grace and Pilgrim. As time moves on, he and Grace’s mom, Annie, find an attraction for one another. The problem is that Annie is still married to Grace’s dad and they are having problems of their own. The accident with Pilgrim has now put even more strain on their relationships.
This is one of my favorite books by Nicholas Evans. It’s written beautifully with a gripping plot I fell in love with from the very first page. I loved the setting in Montana and nearly everything about it. There were a few characters that I didn’t particularly care for, but it was still good. After watching the movie, I’d highly recommend the book most.
