The Horse Dancer

book | Fiction | 2009

In a hidden corner of London, Henri Lachapelle is teaching his granddaughter and her horse to defy gravity, just as he had done in France, fifty years previously. But when disaster strikes, fourteen-year-old Sarah is left to fend for herself.

Forced to share a house with her charismatic ex-husband, her professional judgement called into question, lawyer Natasha Macauley's life seems to have gone awry. When her path crosses that of Sarah, she sees a chance to put things right. But she doesn't know that Sarah is keeping a secret that will change all their lives forever.

Daily Express review
Moyes weaves a strikingly original tale which captivates from the first page. Vanessa Berridge
Daily Express
Full Review

The Horse Dancer is a heartfelt, gut-wrenching, emotional novel filled with moments of joy, excitement, and plenty of tears. In her signature style, Moyes has woven a complicated story about unforgettable characters you'll contemplate long after you finish reading. A long but beautiful book about growing old, being young, and getting lost on the way from one to the other, The Horse Dancer is the perfect read to share with the family. Trust me, this is the kind of book you'll want to share with the ones you love.

Bustle

With a touch of adventure, Moyes offers a lovely comment on the importance of discipline, love, and persistence in our relationships.

Tracy Babiasz
Booklist

Fans of Moyes know what to expect from her books—big
emotions, quirky characters, and a few tears—and this one delivers on all counts.

Kirkus Reviews

Reading Jojo Moyes’s newest novel, 'The Horse Dancer', I had to keep reminding myself that I was not, in fact, reading Dickens.
