    Excellent short story! Emma Kenner and her older brother, Edwar

    Excellent short story!

    Emma Kenner and her older brother, Edward, grew up in the circus owned by their dad. For Emma’s eighth birthday her dad bought a sickly mare from the owner of the local stables, harry Hunter. With love and attention from Emma Silver grew up to be a strong and beautiful horse, she and Emma the star attractions now that Edward had taken his lioness act to Europe. 




    The circus was struggling though. It had a couple of bad summers and the big tent was so old Emma’s dad couldn’t find anybody to insure it. They needed a good season in order to buy a new tent and as they set out in April it looked like their prayers were being answered. The weather was perfect and the shows were sold out. But when disaster struck in the form of a freak gale in July tearing the big tent into shreds they had to pack up and head back to their winter home in Wittersham long before the October season end. They needed money and a lot of it to buy a new big tent. When Harry suggested Emma race Silver with an eye to winning the prize money she decided to go for it. But can Emma handle the stress of racing? Would her dad approve? 




    This is a great short story about overcoming obstacles and working hard toward a goal. It has horse racing and a lot of interesting facts about circus life and the people who live to perform in the circus. Well-written with a fast moving plot and interesting characters this story will have you cheering Emma and Silver on.
