This novel is so much better than the film of it would suggest. I was moved to tears by this novel, and I think everyone will be able to relate to the characters in it. I really felt for Grace, the girl who the novel is based around, whose horse is injured, and the character of the horse whisperer himself is just beautiful. The decelopment of the mother from hard city woman to loving family mother is also beautiful. As with 'The Loop', I have found Evans to be an amazing writer, with a lot of talent. Many of his descriptive passages left me gasping for breath, and his insights into the female psyche are truly a revelation. Outstanding.
