Head of Zeus
Not Enough Time
Not Enough Time Henrietta Knight

This is the rollercoaster story of a great love, between racehorse trainer Henrietta Knight and her husband, Terry Biddlecombe, a hell-raising ex-champion jockey, with two failed marriages and a history of alcoholism behind him.

It is a story of triumph over tragedy, as together they reached the pinnacle of success in National Hunt racing and trained Best Mate to win three Cheltenham Gold Cups. It is also a tale of tragedy over triumph, which saw the great horse die at Hen's feet on Exeter racecourse and Terry passing away far too young, in 2014.

Hen and Terry were called the odd couple because of their different backgrounds and lifestyles, but their love for each other was to produce one of the most endearing modern day racing romances. Here, in Hen's own moving, humorous, courageous words, is their story, told in full for the very first time.

REVIEWS
'As much a love story as a memoir ... Knight writes movingly about their unexpected joy together and the emptiness and loss it left behind'
Observer (2015 Books of the Year)
'The rollercoaster story of a great love between Henrietta and Biddlecombe. It is a story of triumph and tragedy in equal measures'
East Anglian Daily Times
'Although essentially a human story, Knight recalls golden memories of Best Mate's Cheltenham treble plus relating in tear-jerking fashion their superstar's death at Exeter in 2005. Sure to be popular with racing fans, who took the couple to their hearts'
Oxford Times
'A love story in the real sense of those words ... It is funny, it is searingly honest, it is brave and it is moving. Anybody who can read either the prologue or the conclusion of Not Enough Time without a moistness in the eye must have something other than blood flowing through their veins'
Robin Oakley, The Spectator
'Open and immensely readable'
The Times
'A brilliant account of [Knight's] marriage with Terry Biddlecombe ... I recommend this book'
The Sun
'A very readable book about a proper racing love story and, with Christmas not far away, would be an ideal gift for any racing fan'
Racing Post Weekender
'Knight's latest book gives a glimpse into the life that she shared with her great love Terry Biddlecombe ... The beautifully written narrative feels truly honest and flows in a way that makes it seem as though Hen is there, telling you the story personally'
Horse and Hound
'Those who enjoy romantic fiction will treasure this book all the more for the fact their story was very real indeed'
Racing Post
'I read the book in one night, gripped. Yes, it's sentimental, but it's beautifully written, funny and tear-jerking and a reminder never to give up on true love'
