What is it about horses?

Why did I create the idea of a “whisper horse”, a special horse  who helps my characters deal with their problems?

In this article about a therapeutic riding program, Octavia Brown, the director puts it very well:

“A horse never judges and it never thinks you’re different.”

Isn’t that the kind of confidant we all would like to have?

Joyce Lamb from USAToday’s HEA blog did!  She asked me to post about how I came up with the whisper horse concept for my new series beginning with TAKE ME HOME.  You’ll even meet my original whisper pony Papoose.  Read it here: USAToday HEA blog.

A Nod from Nancy: The Hearts of Horses

Ann Patchett wrote something in The Wall Street Journal which resonated with me.  She said people walk into a bookstore and “feel utterly lost in the face of all those titles, and so they walk out empty-handed.”  She combats this problem by recommending books she likes to anyone who listens.  I’ve decided to do the same.

I can’t promise a review of the books I recommend since that takes a lot of time and thought.  However, when I read a book I like–of any genre–I will tell you what it is and try to pique your interest in some way.  Since I’m a big fan of alliteration I’ve decided to title my picks “A Nod from Nancy”.  Catchy, eh?

Here’s my first “nod”:

The Hearts of Horses by Molly Gloss

I like horses but plenty of folks I know who aren’t particularly taken the the four-legged beasts have enjoyed this novel.  It’s set in Oregon in 1917.  The main character is a young woman who travels around various ranches and farms, gentling their horses.  She’s a cross between a bronco-buster and a horse-whisperer.  The story is about people though, as she gets drawn into the lives of the horses’ owners.  There’s love, death, and plenty of other drama, yet the book has a wonderfully calm rhythm which reminded me of riding a horse.

If anyone else has read this book, I’d love to hear what you thought.
