The Language of Hoofbeats by Catherine Ryan Hyde
Jackie and Paula picture a quiet life for their family in their new small-town home. But they begin to butt heads with their neighbor, Clementine, when their troubled daughter, Star, befriends her spirited horse, Comet. Already opposed to her neighbors' lifestyle, Clem, who is no longer able to care for the horse, resents the bond that develops between her horse and Star. The families are thrown together, however, when Star and the horse mysteriously disappear, and they all must put aside their differences and confront the choices that have driven their lives.
