Two courageous young women, tied together by blood and shared passion, will risk everything to save what they love most.

For as long as she can remember, Allie Massey, a gifted physical therapist, has dreamed of making her grandparents' ten-acre estate into a trauma recovery center using equine therapy--a dream her grandmother, Nana Dale, embraced wholeheartedly. But when her grandmother's will is read, Allie is shocked to learn the property has been sold to a developer.

Decades earlier, headstrong Dale Butler's driving passion is to bring home the prized filly her family lost to the Great Depression, but with World War II looming, she's called upon in ways she never could have imagined. And while her world expands to include new friends and new love, tragedy strikes close to home one fateful night during the Battle of the Atlantic, changing her life forever.

As Nana Dale's past comes to light in Allie's search for answers, Dale's courage and persistence may be just what Allie needs to carry on her grandmother's legacy and keep her own dreams alive.

In this winning family saga from Musser (The Promised Land), a young woman fights to open an equine therapy center on her family’s Georgia estate. In the present day, Nana Dale supports her granddaughter Allie Massey’s dream of launching an equine therapy center on Dale’s Georgia estate, but after Dale dies, her lawyer informs the family that Dale sold the estate to a developer. Allie suspects foul play, and after the lawyer gives Allie a note Dale had written years earlier that alludes to how Allie might be able to save the property, she sets out on a hunt to find a family heirloom. Episodes from Nana Dale’s youth are woven into Allie’s story: Dale grows up in the shadow of the Great Depression and comes of age during WWII, when she falls in love with show jumper Tommy and endures the war’s bleakest hours by leaning on her passion for horses and her Christian faith. Lush and romantic prose (“Dale lay down beside him, gently pulling her body close to his, the fire in his skin warming her along with the balmy breeze of the night, their slow breaths matching”) uplifts this affecting tale that celebrates the hard-won wisdom of elders. This is perfect for book clubs. Agent: Chip MacGregor, MacGregor Literary. (Aug.)
