    ePUB Molly Gloss ó ePUB The Hearts of Horses MOBI ´ The Hearts Kindle - ó padreramon.co hearts free, horses ebok, The Hearts epub, The Hearts of Horses KindleThis is an absolutely amazing book It takes place over a six month period from the fall of 1917 through the spring of 1918 in cattle country in Oregon It's a wonderful story of a shy young woman at home with horses than people who comes into the valley to offer to break horses for various farmers and ranchers And of course it is the story of those ranchers and farmers that she meetsEven with the background of the war and of the surfacing of human meanness this is a gentle book and a fun oneMany of the characters reminded me of family and friends I grew up with after all my grandfather still used horses on his farm in a limited way before he moved off the farm in the early 1950s
