I love horse stories, and this one was not a disappointment. Well written and engaging, it was a joy to read.
What knocked a star for me was the fact that everything turns out well only when Mary disobeys her father. I heartily dislike that, especially in a book meant for children. And I admit it, the portrayal of a super sensitive, slightly overbearing parent has never been attractive to me.
Other than that, I loved it! As I've said, it's engaging and fun, and more than anything else, it's about horses.
