From the bestselling author of Water for Elephants: A devastating accident that ends both the career of an Olympic-contender equestrienne and the life of her beloved horse sets off a chain of events that comes to a crisis point nearly twenty years later.As a world-class equestrian and Olympic contender, Annemarie Zimmer lived for the thrill of flight atop a strong, graceful animal. Then, at eighteen, a tragic accident destroyed her riding career and Harry, the beautiful horse she cherished.Now, twenty years later, Annemarie is coming home to her dying father's New Hampshire horse farm. Jobless and abandoned, she is bringing her troubled teenage daughter to this place of pain and memory, where ghosts of an unresolved youth still haunt the fields and stables—and where hope lives in the eyes of the handsome, gentle veterinarian Annemarie loved as a girl...and in the seductive allure of a trainer with a magic touch.But everything will change yet again with one glimpse of a white striped gelding startlingly similar to the one Annemarie lost in another lifetime. And an obsession is born that could shatter her fragile world.

I really enjoy Sara Gruen as an author; however, her main character in this book, Annemarie, really annoyed the heck out of me with her self-centeredness. I guess that is a credit to Gruen's literary skills that she was able to create so much negative feelings in me towards her fictional character.

As a horse enthusiast, I enjoyed this book very much. Annemarie does lose her sane reason from time to time, but it make the book interesting. I liked this audiobook so much that I purchased the book and also its sequel "Flying Changes".
