Enhance your purchase
An exciting horse adventure, perfect for readers from 9 to 14 years old - and older according to many readers!
Evy can telepathically understand horses, but she's not sure if it's a blessing or a curse. Her secret "gift" certainly seems to get her in lots of trouble.
When some starving mustangs wander close to the wilderness cabin that she shares with her hermit mother, she knows she must help them.
Her act of kindness quickly snowballs into a series of events that forever change her life and the life of a very special mustang filly.
"Fantastic story in every way. I adored the characters and the setting and the adventure . . . and couldn't turn pages fast enough." Ev Bishop, Author
"Another super story from one of the best writers of modern pony books around. Angela Dorsey gives us a traditional old fashioned story of the love of a girl for a wild horse with an interesting and intriguing modern twist, and just a dash of mystery. Animal loving children of all ages will enjoy the story, whilst parents can be happy in the knowledge that the important values of empathy and integrity are being upheld. As with many of the author's other books, this story explores an important issue - that of animal and human interaction and communication - whilst still delivering a page-turning story. Not an easy feat, but something this author is adept at. The book can be enjoyed at many levels and will keep the interest of a wide range of age groups, including adults. 4-5 HORSESHOES: VERY GOOD to EXCELLENT." Pony Mad Book Lovers

Merry Christmas everyone
A girl aged thirteen and her artist mother live in a mountain cabin without electricity. They ride horses and watch the local bands of mustangs. But now the winter has brought deep snow, and this might be good for scenic paintings but it's no help to wild creatures in need of food.
Told by Evy, who has the gift of being able to feel the emotions of the horses, and sometimes communicate with them, this winter's tale is replete with change and responsibility; with friendship. I love the varied vocabulary and landscape descriptions. We can learn a lot about caring for horses and injuries. I thought the feeding the wolves part was overdone, but it adds drama. We are left to wonder what Evy will learn when she explores the reason why her mother never goes to town. That's for the next books. Have fun!
