Sara Gruen writes stories around horses and other animals.
I've REALLY enjoyed her work.

Yes! That is the one. I haven't seen the movie yet, and read it before I knew it was going to be one...

I was going to mention this series as well... but the tedium of some of the passages made me not. Still enjoyed them though!

This is cool. So many books to look for. Makes searching so much easier!

I just went to look up The Glass Castle and it pulled up a bunch of Kathy Glass books. Has anyone read them? I'm not sure I'd be able to but they look really good. (About abused children) which I did read A Boy Called It and another book about a little girl who was abducted.... books about kids just bug me...

"Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, Two Shall Become One", by Sharon Lathon - Unbelievably up-lifting, romantic, historic (never cheesy!), and one of the most well written books I've ever read. A written sequel we've always dreamed of after seeing, "Pride and Prejudice". It's that good, and I'm very picky :)

Start the Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan! The final book just came out. It takes a little chewing to get through the descriptive first few chapters, but once you are in, you are hooked. The Eye of the World is the first book.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
