The Language of Hoofbeats Reviews

  • The Geekery Book Review

    I was stuck without WiFi when I finished The Language of Hoofbeats, and I have NEVER been more frustrated that I couldn't write my review ASAP!!

    A couple of my favorite books, not just by this author, but in general, are Becoming Chloe and Don't Let Me Go, but The Language of Hoofbeats drew me in, tied me up, devoured me. Making this my new number one favorite!! I had been in a car, driving for 18 hours, and picked this up at 3 am to help me ease into sleep. The next thing I knew, it was 7 and I

  • Tara - Running 'n' Reading

    Let me first say that if you are looking for an exciting page-turner, this is not the book for you. If you are looking for a story that highlights the complexity of human relationships, told through some intensely flawed yet relatable characters, then look no further. In addition, the story includes some powerful and challenging topics: two of the main characters are a legally married lesbian couple who foster children; there are instances of mental illness and suicide, as well as judgement and ...more

    A couple prickly women, one three times the age of the other, bonding around their mutual interest in a horse. More touchy-feely than I usually go for. Some hard edges give good texture to the characters' lives.

    I like this: “Bunch of grown-ups all sitting around discussing what’s best for the horse. But nobody asks the horse.” Less so when another character asks, "Think that was a metaphor?" and then the horse is beaten to death: “Like the way a poor foster kid must feel just about every day of

    "A Very Engaging Story"

    This is a very worthy story to read. It's another very moving story of doing good works ... even when it can be difficult. Author Catherine Ryan Hyde is the writter of "Pay It Forward" which was made into a wonderful, popular movie by the same name. In this story two women have adopted one 8-year old boy and are fostering to teenagers, one of which is Star, a girl with an attitude and is strong willed. This is a very revealing story of how those who live in a small town ho

    Good story about a foster family moving across the road from a crotchety lady and the bond the teenage girl makes with the lady's horse.

    The story line is predictable but it was a quick nice read. (Hallmarkish feel good type of read).

  • Angela M

    3.5 stars if I could.

    Before I was halfway through this book , I thought that this was maybe a predictable light weight feel good story . I was willing to go with it anyway because - well why not - feel good is good . I'm glad I stuck with it because there really is more to this story .

    It's about grief and healing and about how the goodness of two women who help ease the pain of loss , abuse and loneliness of their adopted eight year old son and their two teenage foster children . Throw in an el

    Let me just say this is another wonderful tear jerker and feel good books by an amazing author!

    I don't even know where to start!!

    Jackie and Paula are a married couple that take in foster kids. They have adopted the youngest, Quinn and fostering Mando until his mom gets out of jail for something she didn't do. Then there is Star, whom they have had for a short period and is chaos on legs. She comes from a bad home so that is no surprise.

    I am happy to be a regular reader and reviewer for Catherine Ryan Hydes books in the UK and the publishers always send me a copy when each book is released. This one was of no exception and I eagerly wanted to get 'stuck in' and read it.

    Its never hard with this authors books to jump right into the story. Its like diving into a sea and exploring your surroundings. One by one you start to unfold what is what.
