Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
When Rose moves to Cape Light, she wants to make a good impression on her new friends, but her mother is a suffragette. Rose is embarrassed by her mother's actions: wearing bloomers, demonstrating in the street, and fighting for women's' right to vote. Ironically, Rose ends up fighting for equal rights herself. Rose loves horses and she daily grooms and rides Midnight Star, a horse at her Uncle's farm. The only way to stop her uncle from selling the horse is to enter a riding competition in which girls are not allowed to compete. She dresses as a boy and hides her long hair in a cap to enter, but on the day of the race she decides to ride as a girl and be proud of it. Rose learns when something means enough to her she will stand up for what she believes—regardless of peer and societal pressure. Rose's Story is one of four in "The Girls of Lighthouse Lane" series. Each of the books focuses on a different girl. 2003, Avon Books/HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 9 to 13.

Booklist
“The tender horse story will appeal to readers, as will the feminist history and drama.”
