SynopsisUsually Bird can get through to horses; though she hasn’t spoken a word to anyone since she was six, she is able to hear the thoughts of animals, and share her own thoughts with them. Now that her mother has left her to be raised by her aunt on a horse farm halfway across the country, Bird is able to put this gift to use.
From the moment Sundancer arrives at Saddle Creek Farm, Bird is fascinated. He’s suspicious and guarded, touchy and cruel. He is a challenge — a wounded horse with a story he’s not ready to share. Will Bird be able to reach him before it’s too late? And will this strange and difficult horse be able to help Bird when her mother pays an unexpected visit?
