They are the Caradynes, who for over 200 years have bred and trained horses of the finest caliber on Coernanagh. But all is not idyllic at hearth and home. Catriona, the youngest child, longs to ride her family's big jumpers and show horses. Her father Michael, recognizes her gift, but her mother hates the very idea.

Anne McCaffrey's audience has come to expect a high level of power and elegance that has become a standard in her writing, and this Ireland-inspired novel is no exception. The stark beauty of McCaffrey's voice is strong throughout every chapter, and it is clear that she is writing about what she knows and loves. Catriona is a character that will steal her way into the hardest of hearts and cling for years after the read. For a tale well-made, and an audience well provided for I say Cheers! to Anne!

i have read a lot of books about horses and this is certainly one of the best ones i've read. plus there aren't that many horsey fiction books out there once people retire from The Black Stallion. if you love to read and you love horses this or even if you love a little romance then this book is for you.

Before she started writing SciFi books she had at least 3 regular books: Ring of Fear, Mark of Merlin and another one I can't recall the name of, but I loved reading all 3 of them. I especially liked the Ring of Fear. I wish these would be put in ebook form. Please...I have them in paperback form but they are very old and are falling apart. Ok...loved this one too!
