Praise

A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2016

“Emmaline’s narration is unreliable, flawlessly childlike, and deeply honest; her faith in magic brings her solace and, possibly, healing. The magical realism is reminiscent of the Chronicles of Narnia, Elizabeth Goudge, or a child’s version of Life of Pi…Readers will love this to pieces.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred review

In clear, gripping, flawless prose,…this exquisite, beautifully illustrated middle-grade novel explodes with raw anguish, magic and hope, and readers will clutch it to their chests and not want to let go.”—Shelf Awareness Reviews, Starred review

Endearing characters, metaphors for life and death, and a slow revelation of the horrors of war give this slim novel a surprising amount of heft.”—Booklist, Starred review

Magical, terrifying, and full of heart. Open these pages, and ride true.”-Kathi Appelt, Newbery Honor-winning author of The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp

A remarkable book. Astonishing!“-Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse

A story that will stay with you long after you finish reading it.” —MARY BROWN, BOOKS, BYTES & BEYOND, NJ
 
“A classic magical feel with a heart-pounding story.” —RAE ANN PARKER, PARNASSUS BOOKS, TN
 
The seven-to-ten-year-old version of myself would have been in love with this book, reading and rereading until it fell apart as badly as my well-worn copy of The Secret Garden.” —KARI MEUTSCH, PHOENIX BOOKS, VT

The Secret Horses of Briar Hill has all the elements of a lasting classic.” —CHRISTOPHER ROSE, ANDOVER BOOKSTORE, MA

A masterful novel.” —CINDY NORRIS, MALAPROP’S BOOKSTORE/CAFÉ, NC

A moving and magical story not to be missed.” —Leslie Hawkins, Spellbound Children’s Bookshop, NC
