Flying Changes | Sara Gruen

Overall, the characters in this series could have been better. I am quite I will read any book about horses. Though I didn’t enjoy this one as much, it was a good read all the same.

Not to mention on a 7 year old horse that no one can ride?! Yeah, sure you did, you flaming asshole- as soon as you realized how bad you screwed up you ran out he ran to Jared!

Jul 08, Jamie rated it did not like it. Like I said previously, Annemarie must be one hot lady, and flyinv only one in town, to keep any sort of man, what with her split personalities. I found I could easily relate to the story and the characters.

All I’ve done, my whole life, is keep it temporarily at bay. More books by this author. If you never outgrew those goofy horse books aimed at ten-year-olds, you might enjoy this one.


Once home, she must deal with her daughter, a sick father, a strict mother, the horses her family owns, and a childhood sweetheart that still looks at her with stars in his eyes. Gruen is a changea storyteller and she continued that ability in this story. Annemarie has fairly recently recovered from being paralyzed by a jumping accident, in which sh I picked up this book at the library because I enjoyed Gruen’s other book, Water for Elephants, so much.

Definitely a book I’d consider a lighter read and in the chick-lit genre – thoroughly enjoyable: Account Options Sign in. The last few books I’ve read have done that.

Jan 21, Mackay rated it did not like it Shelves: Grruen, the single mother, pain is just one example. With eager eyes I sat down that evening and read the book well almost, I finished it up the following evening.

I read this because, as the friend who suggested it said, “it’s about horses and it’s easy to read”–and I’d read the first book. Refresh and try again. I liked the pace of the story as well. So, why did I devour the pages? The main character was really annoying everything makes her cry. I wanted to see if the ending would be as trite as I predicted.

I’ve always been sort of scared of horses and have never been interested in going near them or riding one and being allergic to them doesn’t help. To summarize, this book contains tiresome characters, asra hackneyed chxnges, and a random baby.

All very predictable but in such an annoying way, like nails on a blackboard. Eva is defying her parents in any way she can and Annemarie has no control or seeming way to restrain her.


The Mom is strong and yet not strong at the same time.

Sara, you can do better Jan 01, Kellie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Although you could easily read it and enjoy it without having read Riding Lessons. I know exactly what it means when the smell chznges a barn warms your heart. Paperbackpages. Her mother, Mutti, and Austrian “character” also lives with them on their horse farm, where they teach riding lessons. This book was like watching a bad soap opera and none of the people you wanted dead actually bit the dust. Return to Book Page.

Flying Changes

I suppose it was always there, somewhere in the background. Fluing plot focuses on the main character’s daughter and her eventing career. Anyway, good book, cute story. I couldnt put the book down all day. If anything was inaccurate, I had no idea, and she describes just enough on competitions and the care of horses that it felt like I was a new employee at the ranch learning the ins and outs of a new job.

Turns out I don’t like Eva or her mother anymore this time around than I did in the first novel.
