Review: Laura Neufeld, The Canadian Horse Journals

"Two Independents, is an exciting, heartwarming tale set in British Columbia's interior.

The novel introduces June, the matriarch of the Stetler family. She is a kind, insightful woman, and though suffering from debilitating arthritis, possesses a physical and emotional strength which gives the novel its heart.

Two Independents has all the makings of a great story - for you and old alike. Hesse has created nuanced characters who come alive on the page, and tells a story filled with twist and turns. There is even a bit of a romance thrown into the mix."

This summer, June Stetler has agreed to take both her grandchildren into the mountains with her, the precocious and ever-amusing eight-year-old, Billy, who dreams of being a cowboy, and the fifteen-year-old granddaughter from California that she hasn’t seen in ten years. Can the beautiful, tanned, surly, surfboard-loving teenager with hair like Medusa really be the charming five-year-old that used to sit and cuddle on her lap? June hopes that her love, and that of her two gentle Fjords, will be enough to win the teen’s trust and bring her disjointed family together.

Susie hates BC! She hates it almost as much as she hates horses and dogs. Her grandmother’s massive Irish wolfhound terrifies her, and who names a dog, Horse, anyway? She would much rather be at home, on the beach, riding the waves with her friends. Spending the summer with her grandmother and half-brother at a cabin in the mountains with no running water and no electricity is not her idea of fun.

And then there is Andy, the neighbor’s eighteen-year-old son…does he really think that she’s girlfriend material? Susie wants out, and she wants out now!
