The Hearts of Horses

Molly Gloss

289 pages

"...tells the moving story of an unconventional, strong-willed woman bucking society's norm to gently train horses without breaking their spirit...fascinating." -Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation

From front flap:

In the winter of 1917, a big-boned young woman shows up at George Bliss’s doorstep. She’s looking for a job breaking horses, and he hires her on. Many of his regular hands are off fighting the war, and he glimpses, beneath her showy rodeo garb, a shy but determined girl with a serious knowledge of horses.
So begins the irresistible tale of nineteen-year-old Martha Lessen, a female horse whisperer trying to make a go of it in a man’s world.
With elegant sweetness and a pitch-perfect sense of western life, The Hearts of Horses is a remarkable story about how people and animals make connections and touch each other’s lives in the most unexpected and profound ways.
