Two children find a horse on a camping trip, their father tells a story over a camp fire about a horse like the one they have found. This follows a factual path a horse may take to the Melbourne Cup. Set in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales Australia, I couldn't put it down. Brilliant. Part of a series of Novels, I must investigate further.
