Another great read from Diana Vincent. The story continues with many unseen twists and turns. This book will have you on the edge of your seat while Sierra and River plot to rescue a horse from certain disaster. Ms. Vincent has done an excellent job of bringing the reader emotionally into the story while keeping descriptions of training and barn life accurate. Read the whole series.
What can I say? Harry Potter is a classic on a scale with Alice in Wonderland or Wizzard of Oz. I am an adult (sr. citizen) and I loved it. There is nothing to fear in this book, it is pure children’s fantasy. Relax, and have fun reading.

This was an interesting read. It is incredibly sad but does touch on an important topic–the discrimination against minorities and women’s rights. Reading this book will show you how far our society has come, but some similarities with today’s standards remind us that we have far to go.
The book starts out in an orphanage and then through several flashbacks shows the events that lead to the child being placed there. The story is about the injustice and tragedy in the mother’s (Willow’s) life. It is an eye-opening account of the harsh realities that ‘polite society’ places on women–but not on the men that are equally (or more) to blame.
You will want to reach into the pages of this book to make things right again. The author does try to make a happy ending, but it is clear that these characters will continue to suffer after the last page of the book is read.
My fours star rating is due to some facts that the reader already knows being repeated unnecessarily.
