I thoroughly enjoyed the story, loved the way the author wove distinct descriptions of horse ownership into it. I could tell she has experience with horses.
Between opportunities to read, I found myself smiling subtly in anticipation--not the heart-racing anticipation of a "can't-put-this-down" novel, because you can put this one down, but more like revisiting an old friend you haven't seen in a while. It's comforting. It's heartwarming. It's beautifully written. It's one I found to be as comforting as a warm blanket on a cold winter day.
Kudos to Ms. Konig for a fabulous debut!
When this book began, Emma seemed a little hard, and I wasn't sure how well I was going to bond with her. But somewhere along the journey, I nearly became her.
I adored the way Orly Konig wrote the animals. The horses, the goat, the cats--it all felt like home, and I never even had goats or horses when I was a kid. I have a daughter with Down syndrome who rides in a therapeutic equine program, so the inclusion of that storyline would have won my heart regardless. But the empathy, the goodness that shines out of the animals and the characters who participate in this program in the book went above and beyond. The goodness of humanity shines out of this book, despite the difficult topics--suicide, addiction, familial dysfunction--that cause the central conflict in the book. Simply beautiful.
Emma discovers secrets about her family, shares secrets about herself for the first time, and finds that she knows what she needs to have a successfully life.
Excellent debut women's fiction novel that left me wanting to read author Orly Konig's next novel.
