    by Molly Gloss

    Book Description

    In the winter of 1917, nineteen-year-old Martha Lessen saddles herhorses and heads for a remote county in eastern Oregon, looking forwork "gentling" wild horses. She chances on a rancher, George Bliss,who is willing to hire her on. Many of his regular hands are off fightingthe war, and he glimpses, beneath her showy rodeo garb, a shy butstrong-willed girl with a serious knowledge of horses.So begins the irresistible tale of a young but determined womantrying to make a go of it in a man's world. Over the course of severallong, hard winter months, many of the townsfolk witness Martha talkingin low, sweet tones to horses believed beyond repair -- and gettingmiraculous, almost immediate results. Ultimately, her gifts will earn hera place of respect in the community.With an elegant sweetness like thatfound in Plainsong, and a winning energy as in Water for Elephants,The Hearts of Horses delivers a heartwarming, greatly satisfying storyabout the unexpected and profound connections between people andanimals.
