Intro: It’s been so long since I read a historical fiction. So long that it’s almost a bit shameful. But I was especially intrigued with this one because I love Irish history and I love historical fiction about it. I mean, Galway Bay by Mary Pat Kelly is still one of my favorite books and this one goes right up there with it.
Heroine: Kathleen: Kathleen was such an amazing heroine. She was strong and vivacious. She had such a strong spirit to her that I just loved. She is one of those characters that I will remember long after I have finished this book.
Hero: Jack-I don’t think I have ever come across a hero named Jack that I did not like. I mean it started with Newsies and progressed from there. Jack was such an amazing hero with just as strong a personality as Kathleen. He was the perfect blend of strength and sweetness with a touch of humor.
Chemistry: They were oh so perfect together. I just loved their journey together. You see them progress from friendship and it is just so realistic and perfectly told. I almost always forget a couple after I finish read their book but I don’t think I will forget them.
Conclusion: I loved To Ride a White Horse from the beginning to the very last page. It was written beautifully—I found myself highlighting some passages in the book because of the sheer beauty and I never do that-- and I fell in love with Kathleen and Jack. It’s a book I will pick up again and again. I very rarely find books like that so I feel sort of an accomplished joy when I do.
