Publisher's Summary

Joe, an ugly and unloved horse, trusts no one, and no one trusts him. Until Vicky. This is the story of a troubled horse and the little girl who loves him.

Based on the true adventures of the author's childhood 50 years ago, Joe teaches the lesson that sometimes beauty is not skin deep but heart deep. That the unloved have much to show us about the true nature of love.

    "Wonderful heartfelt story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved this story, its the story of hope and courage not only for Joe but for the heroine Vicky. Wonderful family story, a story for all ages....This is a book that should be a movie!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vicky, as shy young young girl, felt like a misfit. She overcomes thru perseverance and never giving up on herself!...and all though she may not describe it that way...that is exactly what she did.


    What does Dorothy Deavers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    her voice is so soothing and she reads with slight emotion that adds a nice quality


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Don't consider myself religious in the least bit, but before her first horse show (on a particular horse) reading the inscription on "goldie" and breaking down the words and really applying them to the moment was very touching. As a horse lover and owner and always trying to "make the connection" this passage really applies in so many ways to horses,because its a partnership and you both have baggage..

    Story
    "Wonderful!"
    What made the experience of listening to Joe - the Horse Nobody Loved the most enjoyable?

    I received the Audible version straight from the author. That in itself makes it special.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course, Vicky herself. I related to her so much with her love of animals, being a bit of a loner, and her determination.


    What aspect of Dorothy Deavers’s performance would you have changed?

    Although she has a very pleasant voice, I thought there were times when she sounded a little sleepy and when I read the same lines in the book, I didn't hear "sleepy" at all. She slurs her words sometimes and I had to stop and back up 30 seconds to hear the line again because I didn't understand her. But that was minor in an otherwise fine performance on her part.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Without spoiling the story for anyone, the final chapter had me crying so hard I couldn't see.


    Any additional comments?

    I love a good "animal story", and this one goes down on my list of favorites of all time. Wonderful book, highly recommended.

    "A story everyone with a heart will enjoy!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Joe - the Horse Nobody Loved to be better than the print version?

    The story teller did a great job. I liked the audio because it reminds you that it is being told from a grown persons perspective. We are reminded that what happens to us in childhood, affects us later in life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vicky. I relate to her completely. I have experienced so many things that she did, even losing my horse.


    What about Dorothy Deavers’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I am still crying!


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful story no matter what age you are!

    Story
    "Horses and friendships"

    I wanted to like this book far more than I did. At first the little girl who befriended a horse was charming and descriptions of being a child 50 years ago and the constant reminder that the author's mother practiced benign neglect got old and ugly. The comments of her wanting to fight and scratch her sister also got old. After 50 years can't we accept that this was long ago?

    The author acknowledged she changed names and blended personalities to prevent anyone learning the identity of the characters. Then why all the petty name calling of the buck toothed girl who had the best horse and the boy she thought was impressive? If the final point of this book is the be mindfully aware of the Serenity Prayer, then 50 years is enough time to know the difference between the things we can change and the things we can not.

    If the book had said things like 'I hated my sister, she was always mean to me. At least this is what I thought as an immature 9 year old' and continued with the feelings described as being rude, hurtful, selfish and jealous as young children are apt to be then I would have enjoyed the book more. I can't swallow the 'God wants us to be righteous' then calling someone horse head or mastodon tooth. The two behaviors don't mesh with me.

    Well performed. I'm not looking for another book by this author.

    Story
    "IF YOU LOVE HORSES YOU'LL LOVE THIS :)"

    I love this book. It is it a fresh first person account of a lonely little girl who befriends an angry, frightened, abused horse named Joe. Many of Vicky's childhood experiences remind me of mine. She was kindhearted and painfully shy.

    Vicky shares it all, the fears, the foolishness, the embarrassing, inexplicable ways of childhood, the crazy fun, the pure joy of loving and being loved by a horse.

    The narrator is so good I actually thought she was the author! When her voice breaks with emotion, it's clear that although many years have passed and sweet Joe is grazing in elysian fields, it's as if it all happened a moment ago. This is a perfect bedtime story. It'll leave your eyes moist and your heart glowing.
