A coming-of-age book set on a working horse farm in Ireland. McCaffrey's characters come very much to life. I had an odd feeling from this book - I read a gazillion horse books as a kid and this recalled a lot of them (the main character is 12-13 years old) but there's a little romance, a dash if Irish history, and some complex character issues that a young reader wouldn't grasp. If you've ever been a horse-crazy teenage girl, you'll definitely relate to this book.

I started reading Anne McCaffrey's science fiction as a teen and loved it. I ran across this and was surprised that it was not science fiction or fantasy and so quite a departure from her normal books. However, I really liked it. It has much more adult themes than her sci fi novels- dealing with a family where the mother is stiff, formal, and unloving and how they react when a loving female enters their lives.

A rare non sci-fi/fantasy book by Anne McCaffrey.

Irish - horses - romance - a great book.
