    " A good book with lots of very involved different relationships happening. The theme of forgiveness is prevelant. All ends well. I did think the ending seemed a little dragged out. "

    " CHEESY! The only reason I didn't give this one star is that it was easy to read and amusing to roll my eyes at all the cheese! The author obviously wanted to write a love story but had no idea how to do it. On page 10 the "lovers" have never met yet there is a strong attraction. Page 322 the "lovers" have never spent more than an hour together, yet they have never felt a stronger love. Just because the author wrote it doesn't make the reader feel it. I thought this story was going to be more about the horse therapy, but the only thing associated there was mucking the stalls and rewarding the boy for calling another girl stupid during therapy. Again, it makes no sense, but the author needed the boy to win the award, so he just threw in a story. I almost wish someone else would read it so we could talk about all the improbabilities of this story. "

    " I wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't get through it... It was too predictable and the characters were too cliched..... "

    " I was attracted to the equine therapy/ Florida ranch theme. Turns out to be poorly written chick lit, a romance novel with inadequately developed characters. "
