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 c. This is an odd book it doesn t really match McCaffrey s other works and it s really a shame she didn t write like it I never had a horse girl phase but some of my friends did and I always thought it was kind of stupid We lived in a city most of us would never see a horse let alone ride one This is the first and only horse book I ve ever read and it makes me see why girls go horse crazy The book is set in Ireland in the 70 s and it has a surprising number of focuses Sure it s about horses but it s also about a family and about a young girl becoming a grown woman and about politics and about love One interesting factor is the coverage it gives to the rights of women which is a pretty deep topic to cover in a novel McCaffrey does it pretty well she gives us enough detail to see that the issue is important but she doesn t overwhelm or get preachy That s important in a novel since most people will go to a non fic book or Wikipedia lol for hard factsI ve read this book about five times and while there are a few details I don t like extra marital affairs anyone something about this book really draws me I think it may be how the characters really feel like real people They have flaws and some of those flaws are pretty big but I still think it would be neat to go visit them and learn about horses and riding That s a pretty big thing to learn for a horse book hating girl

Hild longs to ride her family's big jumpers and show horses Her father Michael recognizes her gift but her mother hates the very idea All is in a stalemate until Lady Selina He. Dug this up at my mom s house when visiting it s a book I read over and over as a horse crazed girl While McCaffrey is known best for her Pern books I wish she had published a few like these It s a straightforward story of an Irish family all involved in horses The story centers around three primary characters a young girl growing up and facing both personal loss and the triumphs that come after years of hard work and dedication her father managing the stable and coping with his abusively religious wife and the titular lady of the book who becomes an important part of both their lives It s a solid little book not made up of any great flights but very satisfying And if you re horse crazy like I still am it s even better because the details of daily life in the stable are marvelously rendered
