Like I said previously, Annemarie must be one hot lady, and the only one in town, to keep any sort of man, what with her split personalities. Enjoy Flying Changes for what it is, a fast and entertaining changess, and forget what it is not – another Water for Elephants. It probably helps that I have ridden horses, shown horses, and own a horse. Maybe I dozed off, but WTF with the abused lady and her neglected horse and kid?
I guess its difficult to write a really good story involving women and their horses. The plot focuses on the main character’s daughter and her eventing career.

Reading Gruen’s books have opened my eyes to a whole different world. How can this be the same author as the one who wrote Water for Elephants?
Preview — Flying Changes by Sara Gruen. But it’s good to know that Sara Gruen got so much better as a writer.
I am surprised that it does not mention on the cover of Flying Changes that the story is a continuation from Riding Lessons. As flynig he bought her a ring AND earrings. The last few books I’ve read have done that.
Oh the teen angst! Annemarie is written as a woman who could be anyone, whether she is someone who works with horses and has lost her dreams or someone who was the CEO of a hot corporation who has suddenly lost her way.
So, why did I devour the pages? Quotes from Flying Changes. The divorce doesn’t help either. Gruen gave such detail and heart into the backbone of this story th 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. This one is written by the author of the “goodread” Water for Elephants and it took me one long night to read it.
The author has clearly lived with teenage females! Flying Changes is as cheesy as any horse tale out there.
No trivia or quizzes yet. Annemarie is not an easy character to like, however, her imperfections make her easier to relate to so you kind of want to route for her.

Flying Changes (Riding Lessons, #2) by Sara Gruen
Other thing I hated: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Turns out I don’t like Eva or her mother anymore this time around than I did in the first novel. Well, I finished the bookso I figured it at least deserved two stars. Anyway, good book, cute story. I suppose it was always there, somewhere in the background. But the story itself is solid, and I’m finishing these books feeling satisfied.
The story chaanges about three horsewomen, most notably, Annemarie Zimmer, a 40 year cjanges single mother of Eva, In shock and filled with a sadness few can relate to, Annemarie gives up her riding and her dreams of having an Olympic medal placed around her neck. I found Flyinng was getting more and more aggravated with the characters in this book. Fast-forwarding decades later, Annemarie finds herself back at the family ranch after a divorce.
I was very disappointed in it because I had read the novel Water For Elephants by the same author and absolutely loved it. Based flyying the reviews I read before starting this second book following Riding Lessons, I was worried I wasn’t going to like this.
Let’s get one thing out of the way right now; I think horse people are on the crazy side.
