First off, I'll say one thing: this book is far, far better than the first in the series.

There are three main plots in the book and each of them are told so wonderfully and realistically. That's the thing about Sheena Wilkinson - she writes with such a level of realism that generally isn't found in other horse books, and it's refreshing to not read the usual sugarcoated horsey fantasies.

Another amazing book and has some really sad moments that made me realise how tough it must be for some people in rough neighbourhoods (oh gosh i sound like my grandmother) and one on my favourite books

I really enjoy her style of writing. I felt it was necessary to have read the first book, Taking Flight to entirely enjoy this. I was delighted that it was told only from Declan's point of view, while still including all the characters from the first book. There were moments when it read a little slow, and I probably wouldn't think so much of it on its own, but it's a brilliant sequel. I do think I enjoyed Taking Flight more though.
