Painted Ponies is such a sweet, beautiful story with very few reviews.I aim to rectify that:)
is the story of young woman (an identical twin) whose life is
drastically changed by a house fire that leaves her mother and father
dead and herself badly scarred. She goes away for a year getting medical
treatment and returns to her home town, expecting her brother to meet
her at the train station. Instead, her brother's employee meets them;
Rob, a man with his own troubled past, a man who has been commissioned
by her brother to create a carved wooden carousel for his sister as a
I just love the whole "look beyond the
surface" kind of love story where people are attracted to the person
itself, with or without the fancy packaging. In Rob's eyes, Anne is
beautiful inside and out and never is there a word or look of pity in
his gaze. Of course, there's the tension which you need in a story, the
misunderstandings and doubts that make you wonder if love will really
triumph in the end, yet knowing that it must. It HAS to!
Such a lovely story.
Ponies is the first in a series of books but is stand alone with no
cliffhanger endings. I believe that the other books in the series focus
on other townsfolk in Hidden Falls.
