Horse people tend to be unusual, ranging from strikingly lovable to shockingly irritating. Each one has a story—or several—to tell, both happy and sad.
Horse Scents presents a collection of thirteen intertwined stories that explore a year in the lives of boarders at one dusty old stable in suburban Atlanta. The tales within reveal a microcosm of humanity within the tiny but varied world of the stable, among the horses. They depict happiness and heartbreak, laughter and tears, romance and intolerance. As the characters—some that might appear to have familiar aspects—make their way through the year, their hopes, fears, secrets, dreams, plans, disasters, and nightmares all come out in ways that they could never have imagined.
With horse scents, horse sense, and nonsense in abundance, this collection of short stories follows an interconnected set of people over the course of a year, through triumph and tragedy.
