(Show Jumping) Canadian Show Jumping Invitationals
Abby Malone is out for a ride on her favourite horse, Moonlight Sonata. When a flash thunderstorm hits, Abby and Moonie take refuge in what appears to be an abandoned barn. Inside, Abby discovers a wooden stage, velvet seats and an orchestra pit. What on earth is a theater doing in an old barn? And what is that blur of bluish light in the second row from the back?
From the author of the best-selling Dancer and Abby Malone comes Stagestruck, a new story chock-full of adventure, mystery and romance. With his owner, Hilary, off at university, the magnificent showjumper Dancer is restless and in need of excercise. Abby is thrilled when Hilary offers her the chance to train this magnificent horse, but soon she finds herself caught in a tangle of mysterious events. As Abby prepares Dancer for the prestigous Grand Invitational-and the community comes together to mount a production of Pinocchio at the old theater-strange things begin to occur. Is someone out to hurt Abby, or is Dancer once again the target of Samuel Owen's wrath?
For those familiar with Peterson's earlier work, or for new readers, Stagestruck is an unforgettable story.
|Weakest book of the three, by firefly on May 05, 2006|
|This is the third book in her series, the first two being "Dancer" and "Abby Malone". Although I loved "Dancer" (except for the name), I found that the subsequent books delved further away from the realistic aspect with regards to horses (and these are not fantasy books), but overall it is still quite a good story.|
|Worth it to read a hundred times!!, by cream_soda on March 13, 2005|
|Honestly I'm speechless! What can you say besides this is the best book ever?!? Not much ^_^ Hits a note for all horse lovers, so realistic that it's hard to imagine this isn't non-fiction. From theater, to love, to ghosts, to evil rich people, to perfect and not so perfect horses, Shelley Peterson ties it in all together so good. A definate re-read for me!|
