Half Broke Horses

book jacketI read Jeannette Walls' memoir called Glass Castle and LOVED it. I honestly couldn't put it down and was amazed at what she and her siblings went through as kids. Now I'm reading Walls' fictionalized story of her grandmother called Half Broke Horses.  I like it but it's not quite as put-downable as Glass Castle. Here is a blurb about Half Broke Horses:

 Presents a novel based on the life of the author's grandmother, Lily Casey Smith. Lily learned to break horses in childhood, journeyed five hundred miles as a teen to become a teacher. She also ran a vast ranch in Arizona with her husband while raising two children.
