I mentioned this book before in Off Course, but no responses, so I am guessing no one has read it yet. It was given a mention in Horse Journal.
I bought it and just finished it. I have to say I am now underwhelmed. It was a compelling page turner for me up until the end, which left me pretty darn unsatisfied. Has anybody else read it and felt the same way? I am wondering if the author made that ending because it was the most historically correct (although she does say this is a work of fiction that is based on stories handed down by family members who were there), if she did it because otherwise the book would have seemed too good to be true given what we know about WWII, or because she simply couldn't think of a way to make a better ending for the horses involved.
Thoughts, anyone? I've got that "I've just been given a big letdown by a book I was really enjoying" feeling.
