Simon Philipe is the story of a man and the women and horses that he loves. Simon copes with a job that has become routine, and struggles with divorce, finding release and strength in his horses. A new woman, lovely, intelligent, and independent, challenges Simon's outlook that seems old-fashioned in a rapidly changing world. Several years younger and of a different race, she causes him to explore his past, from abandonment as a child to the youthful adventures in the harsh world of the Canadian wilderness. Simon will learn that caring for a woman, for children, even for a horse, demands sacrifice.
