About

Overview

A New York Times Bestselling Author

Donald believes he knows all there is to know about seeing. An optometrist in suburban Boston, he is sure that he and his wife, Viv, who runs the local stables, are both devoted to their two children and to each other. Then Mercury — a gorgeous young thoroughbred with a murky past — arrives at Windy Hill and everything changes.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

“A fiercely intelligent exploration of the ways blindness to ourselves, others, and the power of passion and grief can divide us and transform us. . . . Livesey’s skillful play with the title’s many meanings . . . gives her narrative a rich imagery that interweaves seamlessly with its textured evocation of everyday life.”

— Publishers Weekly

“[A] probing study of the way character shapes our destinies. . . . Livesey, a Scottish transplant whose brilliant novels are underknown in her adopted country. . . . A sharply sketched supporting cast adds to the depth and cumulative power . . . yet more evidence of Livesey’s formidable gifts.”

— Kirkus Reviews (starred)
