Teaser Tuesdays: The Princess and the Foal by Stacy Gregg, 2014

Okay, so for those of you who are new to this meme, here's how it works:
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My current read is The Princess and the Foal by Stacy Gregg.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
The inspiring novel about real life princess and equestrienne Haya of Jordan.
Princess Haya loves her family more than anything--especially her mother who brings light and happiness into King Hussein's house. So when Queen Alia is killed in a tragic accident, Princess Haya is devastated. Knowing how unhappy she is and how much she loves horses, Haya’s father, King Hussein, gives her a special present: a foal of her very own. And this foal changes Princess Haya’s world completely.
Set in an exotic locale where royalty is real, this story of a determined modern-day princess is both beautiful and awe-inspiring. Perfect for fans of Black Beauty, Misty of Chincoteague and anyone who wonders what it's like to be a real princess. (272 pages)
This week's quote comes from page 125:
Steadying herself, Haya prepares to jump. She feels like there should be something - a speech or at least a drum roll to signify the momentous nature of this occasion. She is going to ride Bree. Her horse, whom she raised from a three-day-old foal. They are about to become united, two spirits joined as one at last.
Does this interest you? Check back on Friday for my review!
