Overview


Freya loves horses, but her mother forbids her to go near them. So the little girl decides to carve her own huge horse in the white chalky rock on the hillside above her village. When she finishes, a strange old woman, a gold ring, and a magical journey into the heart of the hill lead to a wonderful meeting that will heal the broken hearts of Freya's family — and bring her two unexpected birthday gifts! Miriam Moss's enchanting story with its mythic overtones was inspired by the Litlington White Horse, a chalk figure carved into Hindover Hill in East Sussex, England.
