Synopsis

Eleanor McGraw, vertically challenged, empathic and sharp daughter of folk musician Isabel Payne and a world famous rock guitarist, wakes up a few days shy of her 14th birthday to a life more ordinary. After years of vagabonding around the world alongside a series of chaotic father figures, they are settling down with quiet Kjell, a Swedish dentist, on the outskirts of a small town on the South coast of England. While exploring her new home's surroundings, Eleanor discovers a solitary pony in a deserted plot of grazing land. As she befriends the animal and meets scar-faced, foul-mouthed, 16-year-old Pike she is slowly drawn into another family's tragic past and finds herself at the centre of a decision between life or death, past or future, beginning or end. A contemporary book about people, ponies, patchwork families, friendship and love, suitable for anyone - horse rider or not - between 14 and 104. Contains some strong language.

Katharina Marcus is a Brightonian author of German-Jewish descent with a Dutch passport and a nationless heart. She lives in perpetual chaos on a ball in space with one husband, two children, four ponies and a cat. A life-long horse woman with a serious penchant for bareback riding, she used to top up her meagre earnings from writing by moonlighting as a freelance riding instructor and horse trainer when not practising as a psychotherapist or serving food. Presently she is employed as a Girl Friday in a school for exceptionally entertaining and diverse young people.
