I loved this story of a girl making her way in a man's world, working with difficult horses, in the West during World War I. Martha is such an appealing character (especially as voiced by Polly Stone), tall and ungainly and uninterested in wearing a dress. Instead she prefers sleeping in the barn, wearing pants, and riding horses with patience at the forefront of her training methods. It's not an earth shattering read in any sense of the world but I loved the mood and gentleness; it's a thoroughly easy read.
