Children's Literature
Young readers enthralled by horses and mysteries will gallop through The Ghost Horse of Meadow Green by Anne Louise MacDonald. Long-repressed family secrets start to surface when Gramma-Lou comes to live with Kim and her parents. Suddenly Kim begins catching glimpses of a ghostly palomino. How are the horse and her grandmother connected? And then there's a real horse, abused by a teenage neighbor, that badly needs her help. This powerful story revolves around the mistakes that, unless addressed, seem doomed to be repeated by subsequent generations. Thankfully, Kim and her father are able to break the cycle—and welcome a horse in the process. 2005, Kids Can Press, Ages 10 to 14.
