Eakable bond with Midnight and can’t bear to be apart from her Throughout the sweltering summer as they follow Midnight from show to show Sarah comes to terms with what she witnessed on the terrible night her mother diedBut the journey is far from over Faith must learn the value of trusting her instincts and realize that the key to her future and Sarah’s is in her hand. DisappointingAlthough her books are very formulaic and close to YA fiction I have been a fan of Ms Hyde and have read eight of her books Perhaps it is because of the repetitive formula of each of her books that I have not really liked this one Perhaps it is just that I have read so many of them Or perhaps it is characteristics of this particular book as well as the difficult to believe aspects of her formula that makes it my least favorite But I think on top of those factors there were features of this book that I found annoying Ms Hyde's formula is that an adult often an older adult takes a teenager or than one teenager for a period of time often on a road trip Both of the characters has issues that they need to work out and they manage to do it together The difficulty in that formula is the fact that the adult is either nearly or totally a stranger to the child She attempts to explain the fact that other adults closer to the child allow this stranger to take the child away for a period of time Usually there is a somewhat compelling reason and the responsible adults in the child's life are unwilling or unsuitable to exercise much guidance and control But in this case the adults in the child's life or at least one adult is responsible and capable But nonetheless she allows her granddaughter to go off with someone they have just met I just cannot accept that that would happen in the situation And there was one feature of the writing style that totally annoyed me Instead of calling the girl in the story by her name the author kept calling her the girl Ugh I should probably get this book a 2 rating but because I've been a fan of Ms Hyde's I just couldn't do that

Just After MidnightFrom the New York Times bestselling author of Pay It Forward comes an uplifting and poignant novel about friendship trust and facing your fears No longer tolerating her husband’s borderline abuse Faith escapes to her parents’ California beach house to plan her next move She never dreamed her new chapter would involve befriending Sarah a fourteen year old on the run fr. Rating 5 stars Okay I’ll admit it I’m a late comer to author Catherine Ryan Hyde I’ve only read three or four of her previous books but they have all been high uality reads This book extends that track record with me It features a friendship between Faith and Sarah It’s a bit of a murder mystery; a coming of age story; a woman leaving an abusive relationship story; and glimpse into the business of horse dressage Whew from that description you’d think it would be all over the place but Ryan Hyde exercised her writing chops skillfully and produced a book that moved all these elements along seamlesslyAs the book opens middle aged Faith meets 14 year old Sarah on the beach in front of the house that Faith is temporarily staying at Sarah and her Grandmother are at their rented beach because Sarah’s mother recently died Her Grandmother brought her to the beach to try to get over some of the heartbreak and to spirit her away from her father Faith has left her abusive husband with just the clothes on her back and is trying to figure out what to do with the next part of her lifeFaith strikes up a conversation with Sarah which leads Faith to meet Sarah’s grandmother Constance Over the course of a few days the bond between the three of the ladies grows as Faith learns that Sarah is also trying to process the sale of her beloved horse Midnight who was sold by her father just days after her mother died The double blow has made Sarah retreat into a shell where she barely eats or communicates with anyone When Sarah’s father figures out that Sarah and her grandmother are at the beach Constance implores Faith to take Sarah away for a few days to keep her away from her Dad Faith reluctantly agrees and the buddy road trip part of the story starts Sarah convinces Faith to drive out to a Dressage show where her beloved horse Midnight is being shown by her new owner From there Faith and Sarah spend the sweltering summer together in various California stables and farms as they follow Midnight from one owner to another Okay that’s enough of the plot You can read most of the plot outline on the book blurb anyway What this book does a wonderful job at is illustrating how much we can learn if we sometimes step out in faith and trust that others are willing to extend themselves to help in a tough situation; that family isn’t solely based on blood; that animals can have profound impacts on our lives; that moving forward on a new path isn’t easy but can be very empowering Come to think of it a lot of this book is about empowerment Sarah found the inner strength to stand up to her father Faith felt empowered to stand up to her estranged husband in order to help SarahI was a bit horse mad as an adolescent girl so I could easily relate to Sarah’s devotion to her horse But I don’t think that you’d need to have any experiences with horses to still relate to Sarah and Midnight’s connection I enjoyed learning about what is involved in training a Dressage horse and the Dressage show circuit I cried a tear yes I’ll admit it towards the end because the story was just so expertly told It pulled me in and made me care Isn’t that just about the highest praise you can give a book Catherine Ryan Hyde has produced another showstopper here I originally thought I'd give this book 4 stars but it's really stayed with me over the last couple of weeks since I finished the book I keep thinking about Faith and Sarah and remember the emotional tugs their story produced so I've changed the rating to 5 stars‘Thank You’ to NetGalley; the publisher Lake Union Press; and the author Catheri
