Product Description

That day on the road took everything from Alice Montgomery. Her beautiful face, her father’s keen mind, and her precious horse. One horrible accident left her trapped in a burning truck. They say she was lucky to survive, but they lied.

Nearly a year later, Alice feels the pain and sadness from that day just as fresh as when it happened. Her surviving is barely hanging on. How do you live when all you once lived for is dead and gone?

Then one day opportunity knocks on the door. It’s the chance to heal, to move on. Finally, Alice feels something besides the familiar, aching pain.

It’s time to leave the fire behind and truly live again, but Alice holds tight to the pain of that day, possibly too tight to ever let go.

HASH(0xa2f5b54c) out of 5 stars a special and heartbreaking tale March 11 2015
By Claire - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don't know why my whole body's shaking up while writing this review. I honestly just cried silently after reading this book, about Matthew and Alice and her pony Rosie and dog Tucker. I felt all their pains and sufferings. I didn't like it when some of them died. I didn't like it when one of them was left broken.

This is one of Meg Collett's novellas, totally different from the paranormal books she had previously written. Meg is a brilliant writer and that talent of hers is reflected in this book.

Alice, the not-so-little girl in the story, was in an accident with her father and horse, Rosie. An accident that left her disfigured, her horse dead, her father committed to a care facility, and her mother kind of afraid of her. Hope sprang when Matthew saved a number of horses and brought then to Alice's stable for rehab. Things were looking up in the next couple of weeks and months, until one fateful day where Alice had to relive the tragedy and get endangered again.

This story is really beautiful, but at the same time, heartbreaking. As I've said, I cried after reading this, the kind of cry that everyone in my household would notice. I ended up re-reading the story to my kids and in the end, they understood why I teared up. My middle boy could totally relate because he has this pet dog named Margaux whom he loves so much. He refuse to think of anything that might happen to her. So you see, this book is quite special to us.
HASH(0xa2f5b798) out of 5 stars Very "true story" book. Dec 8 2014

The main thing I want to say about this book if you only read the first couple of sentences of my review is, this book is very true to life. Unique and great. There are no perfect characters in this short story.
'A whole life transformed in a tiny moment.'
One tragic day in the perfect life of Alice Montgomery. An accident on the road with her father and the most precious thing in her life. Her companion, her best friend, her love, her horse.
'Inside that metal box, the most precious thing in Alice's life was screaming her pain, her death, her end. And there was nothing she could do to save her horse, because Alice could only burn. And burn she did.'

Alice is left scared and bitter and it takes an unlikely old school mate in need of a favor to give her a push in the direction to her healing.
This is a short book but I loved the plot it's different and Meg Collett made me keep reading and needing the whole story. There was no slow down or dragging out. I connected with the characters, felt them, and cared for them as if I were reading about real people.
This book is worth the read. It's a love story of many angles, unconventional love.

**5+++ stars**

Little Girls and Their Ponies is much more than a story about a girl & her horse. It is a story of tragedy, healing and hope. It shows the true power of animals in therapy and healing. It shows the courage one must have to learn to overcome a devastating tragedy and begin to heal.

Never before have I read a story that had me in tears with merely one chapter. Not since reading A Dog's Purpose and A Dog's Journey have I felt such emotions or found an author that can relay these emotions in words on a page.

As another reviewer said, don't be fooled into thinking only those that like horses will enjoy this novella - anyone with a heart will fall instantly in love with this book.

While this doesn't have your typical HEA, I don't believe this story could have ended any other way than it did.

A thousand kudos to Meg Collett for writing a story so profound and emotionally heart-wrenching that I know it will be staying with me for many, many years.

ARC for Review

One day on the road turned Alice Montgomery’s life upside down. A terrible accident left her in a burning truck which disfigured her once beautiful face, her father’s keen mind and the death of her beloved horse. They told how lucky she was to be alive but she thinks otherwise.

A year later and still she feels the pain and sadness of the day. Alice is barely surviving as the things she once loved are no longer around but dead.

One day, she finds a way to move forward slowly with the aid of Matthew a longtime friend and local veterinary. Using the once empty barn for rescue horses, she finds herself moving forward. Slowly she begins to feel again beyond the pain.

Will Matthew make her feel whole again as they spend more time together. Can she allow herself to be happy once again and dream like that of a little girl she once was? A story of moving forward and learning to dream again.

After a tragic accident Alice must learn to pick up the pieces and heal not only physically, but mentally too. However, she is just going through the motions daily and doing it halfheartedly at best. When Matthew presents her with a group of neglected horses that are in need of a temporary home and care, will she rise to the occasion and take a chance?

This read was sweet and pulls you in. The characters were down to earth and you can relate to their story that keeps you reading straight through to the end. Speaking of the end, which is where I felt most vested in Alice’s character, you find yourself getting thrown for a loop.

This heartfelt story by Meg Collect was provided to me for an honest review. Believe me when I say that I’m happily finding my way through her books and this read you will enjoy.
