She really brought out the different personalities of the the horses themselves, as well as developing the human characters. The story was a good mix about the main character of Tonya and her race track life, and the mystery that was unfolding. The ending was very satisfying. I am glad there is a sequel waiting in the wings!
While Dangerous Turf is certainly an entertaining read, it also paints a vivid and accurate picture of the challenges facing women who are vying for credibility in the male-dominated world of race horse trainers and jockeys. I especially enjoyed the subplot involving a horse that would only perform well for a female trainer and a female jockey. I was introduced to the horseracing world by a woman trainer with just such a stallion, so I think I understand how that relationship really goes. D.M.O'Byrne captures it honestly, accurately and engrossingly.
If you love horses, who-done-its and a fun read read, this book doesn't disappoint!
While there was some predictability there were enough surprises to keep it balanced and pull you through the pages. In this era of heightened racial tension she is able to very delicately handle the horror we feel when faced with it outright and the shame we feel when we must face our own predijuces that are blind spots.
It is refreshing to be able to read a book of this caliber with my teen daughter. It held both our attention without sex. Thank you, O’Byrne, for a rare chance to read an adult novel without feeling it!
