Book: White Horse
Author: Erika T. Wurth
Thank you NetGalley and Macmillan Audio for an advanced audio copy.
When I finished White Horse I could not wait to get a copy for my wife and talk about it. We are both fans of Dark and Shallow Lies by Ginny Myers Sain and I felt this was the adult version of that. I loved Dark and Shallow Lies but the characters are young making it harder to relate to them as I get older. In White Horse Kari and I are the same age making it easier to relate.
The story was enthralling. Kari finds an old bracelet that belonged to her mother, after holding it she begins to be haunted by her mother’s ghost. Her mom was presumed dead after she disappeared just two days after Kari was born. With help from her best friend Debbie and her Auntie Squeaker, she knows what she has to do. She has to solve the mystery of her mother’s disappearance to put her spirit at ease and officially transfer ownership of her bracelet to herself.
White horse deals with ghosts and other settings that make you suspend your belief of reality but it does it in a way that still keeps the story relatable and very grounded. This was due to the excellent writing of Erika T. Wurth.
As a character you can’t help but love Kari and her best friend Debbie. They are extremely likable and go through so much growth throughout the story. I love where they all are by the end. I recommend White Horse to anyone.
Final Score 5/5
