PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Hearts of Horses This breakout novel from the author of The Jump Off Creek tells the heartwarming story of a determined young woman with a gift for gentling wild horses .

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

So begins the irresistible tale of nineteen year old Martha Lessen a female horse whisperer trying to make a go of it in a man s world It was thought that the only way to break a horse was to buck the wild out of it and broken ribs and tough falls just went with the job .

But over several long hard winter months many of the townsfolk in this remote county of eastern Oregon witness Martha s way of talking in low sweet tones to horses believed beyond repair and getting miraculous almost immediate results and she thereby earns a place of respect in the community .

Along the way Martha helps a family save their horses when their wagon slides into a ravine She gentles a horse for a dying man a last gift to his young son She clashes with a hired hand who is abusing horses in unspeakable ways Soon despite her best efforts to remain aloof and detached she comes to feel enveloped by a sense of community and family that she s never had before .

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