The Yankee village of Long Ridge cradles the story of a boy and girl working and growing amid the red barns and broad haylands adjoining their homes.
After school and doing chores, when the long afternoons of Eastern War Time turned warm with the season, the young pals rode a great, black horse across fields and over stone walls, moving as one rider with its animal power. Yet time and the war were hurrying their lives. Before the young couple finishes their teen years, they leave the Ridges to seize their futures at home, at sea, and in a world at war. It was a time when all goodbyes were uncertain and some were forever.
