The Girl Who Remembered Horses
by Linda Benson (author)
(Pacific Northwest, USA)
What if everyone around you thought horses were mysterious creatures...untameable? What if some of them thought horses were meant to be hunted for food? What if you were one of the only ones who thought horses may be more than that; perhaps they could be tamed and ridden?
In this novel set far in the future after the "Dark Days," that's exactly where Sahara finds herself. She dreams of horses at night and believes they are meant to be companions to people. But almost everyone around her thinks she is crazy - a dreamer. Only her friend Evan supports her dream. But is that enough?
The Girl Who Remembered Horses is a unique book, unlike any other horse book I've read. It's futuristic like the Hunger Games, but no where as violent. There is just one scene that is a little difficult if you love horses like I do. It made me think about how it must have been when the very first horses were tamed. Who thought they could ride horses? Who took that first chance? What must people have thought at the time?
This book will make you wonder and marvel at the magic and mystery of these beautiful animals we now call our friends. Suitable for girls of all ages.
