I read this because, as the friend who suggested it said, “it’s about horses and it’s easy to read”–and I’d read the first book. I really enjoyed that book and I was delighted to receive the sequel, Flying Changes.

View all 3 comments. Based on this and the first book of the seriessarra be a cold day in Hades before I read anything else by Gruen, including any NYT bestsellers. I’m not expert on horses, A Wonderful story woven around horses My friend gave this book for my birthday.

I know exactly what it means when the smell of a barn warms your heart. Other books in the series.

May 15, Jenny rated it it was ok. I really did expect better. I picked up this book for 2 reasons Sara already has her eye on another horse and a donkey. If I EVER thought about speaking to my mother the way she did, I’d be sleeping in the barn and be lucky to have some goddamned hay to cover with. She bounces between having no spine and letting her daughter walk all over her, and overreacting chahges small things while remaining entirely selfish.


Her vruen is just like her, only a teenager.

But the story itself is solid, and I’m finishing these books feeling satisfied. Reading Gruen’s books have opened my eyes to a whole different world.

This book is one of my favourites and I plan to read it every summer. Not to mention on a 7 year old horse that no one fyling ride?! If you do not love horses, do not read this book. If you never outgrew those goofy horse books aimed at ten-year-olds, you might enjoy this one. And as a former horsewoman, I’ll just say–I wouldn’t let either of these characters near a horse in real life.

Annemarie is written as a woman who could be anyone, whether she is someone who works with horses and has lost her dreams or someone who was the CEO of a hot corporation who has suddenly lost her way.

The teenager plays more of a role in this book, she is hard to like, pretty bratty. More books by this author. In the sequel, Annemarie is really trying to be a better mother to her teen daughter Eva, which proves even harder than she expected.


Flying Changes

Riding Lessons 2 books. Neither the main character nor her daughter were strong females; they were dramatic in a ridiculous way.

Main character is so feeble, needy just wanted to slap her in every situation. Apr 16, Deb rated it liked it. But when Eva falls in love with a spectacular blue roan Nokota who hasn’t let anyone ride him since his arrival at the barn, Annemarie’s doubts come crashing back. Just a moment while we eara you in to your Goodreads account.

The heroine-narrator drove me nuts. But if she cannot let go, the personal battles she has won and the heights she has achieved will have all been for naught. Plot Tips on technique 6: I’m so glad I stayed on course.
