I have very mixed feelings about In the Orbit of You. On one hand, I totally adored this story, loved every minute of its torturous tension and yet heartwarming tale.

It’s been a while since I’ve read a book that I’ve fallen in love with as quickly as I did with Even If It Breaks Your Heart. It was everything I needed – horses, grief, friendship, slow burn romance, family and just so much heart it was an utter delight to read.

I loved every page of Every Time You Go Away.
