The year is 1875, and twelve-year-old orphan Margret and her sister, Libby, are living with all the kind Mrs. Fredriksen in her sod house in rural Littleton, Colorado. Immediately Margret lays claim towards the horse, naming him Flynn, nursing him back to health, and teaching herself to ride. Now more than ever, Margret yearns for some stability in her life. Somehow, she's got to locate a way to convince Libby to stay so she can make Flynn hers. Margret would be happy to stay forever, but she knows that Libby, with her simple distrust of anyone other than Margret, will have them moving soon enough. Powerfully written and historically accurate, this can be a great addition for the series that's tailor-made for girls who love horses and historical fiction. Then a tornado sweeps through, bringing with it an injured horse.
