The Hearts of Horses Summary


The Hearts of Horses by Molly Gloss

In the winter of 1917, a big-boned young woman shows up at George Bliss's doorstep. She's looking for a job breaking horses, and he hires her. Many of his regular hands are off fighting the war in Europe, and he glimpses beneath her showy rodeo garb, a shy but determined girl with a serious knowledge of horses.

So begins the irresistable tale of Martha Lessen, a female horse whisperer trying to make a go of it in a man's world. Along the way, Martha helps a German family, ostracised by the community, to save their horses, gentles another horse for a dying man - a last gift to his young son - and gradually earns the respect and admiration of her new neighbours.

With elegant sweetness and a pitch-perfect sense of western life, The Hearts of Horses is a remarkable a story about how people and animals make connections and touch each other's lives in the most unexpected and profound ways.
