The child's wish: A pony of her own. For her twelfth birthday-just as her father had promised years ago.
The father's wish: A safe and happy life for his daughter. That's all Mike Whitten's ever wanted. And that means keeping her away from Liz Matthews and her "germ-filled" camp for young horselovers. It also means breaking his promise-a promise made in haste-at a time when Mike would have done anything to bring a smile to his child's face.
The woman's wish: That Mike would stop treating his daughter as though she were made of glass. And-if Liz Matthews could sneak in a second wish-that he would start looking at Liz as more than just his daughter's riding teacher.
