The Horse Dancer by Jojo Moyes. Published by Penguin

The lives of a 14-year-old girl and an attorney suffering a mid-life crisis come together in Moyes’s latest story. 14 year old Sarah has always wanted to be a championship rider like her grandfather, and when he gives her a horse of her own, she can imagine herself escaping her grimy London neighborhood for the French countryside to train where her grandfather did. But when her grandfather is hospitalized, Sarah has little time for her riding, as she tries to visit her grandfather in the hospital,  take care of her horse and herself. She crosses paths with  Natasha when the older woman catches Sarah shoplifting. Natasha, an attorney whose own personal and professional life is in tatters takes the young teen under her wing. Moyes knows how to get into reader’s hearts, and she doesn’t disappoint with this story about love and family (and horses!)
