Appaloosa Summer – Tudor Robins

Meet 16-year-old Meg. She has never known loss, until her horse, whom she trained herself, drops dead underneath her in the show ring. To deal with grief, Meg changes everything about her life. During the summer, she moves away to work at an B&B on an island in the St. Lawrence River.

Once there, she meets Jared Strickland, who has been living with loss ever since his father died in a tragic farming accident. He is doing his best to keep anything else in his life from changing.

When Jared offers Meg a scruffy appaloosa mare out of a friend’s back field, it’s the beginning of a journey that will change both of them by the end of the summer.

What I love about Tudor’s books, is the mix between horses and humans. It doesn’t feel like those children books with horses. It just feels so grown-up! It is the perfect mix between horses and humans, the perfect mix between the problems of humans and horses.. Can it get any better?

I also love how Tudor portraits horse. She shows the impact they can gave in someone’s life, but also how they can help people by just being there.

You’ll also notice Meg’s character development, because that is huge one! She is such a different person if you compare her to how she was at the beginning vs as the end.

I flew through this book, and it was a huge feel-good novel, that left me smiling most of the time!

I cannot wait to read the sequel to his book, and to see how far Meg will come in her life!

I ended up giving this book 4 out of 5 stars.
