When I first picked up this book, it was a late in the evening at the local library. I was a young girl, barely eight years old and I was struggling with some very difficult situations at home. There was a rift in my family, centered around me and it caused me to burrow into myself, not allowing for the easy childhood friendships that I should have had. At that time I was discovering books, but they were not quite what I was looking for. Sort of like picking up appears to be a soft drink and finding out it's really tea. Bearable, but not quite right. So I went looking for a book, not because I was aware of what I really needed, but because my young soul was lonely and broken. Black Beauty and I spent much of the next few weeks together as I read and then reread the story over and again. He understood my pain like no one else ever could. Together we raced the wind under fair weather and toiled up great hills against odds that no one should ever have had to face. He was my companion, as I was his. Recently, I picked up the book again and found myself dwelling on those long ago days. I can still remember the feel of soft grass as I lay with Black Beauty, full of pain but still able to gaze upon the bright flowers around me. To be able to see beauty, even when life is not at its best, was the gift that I most needed and the lesson that the story teaches us all.
