When Willy Cameron, a lively fifteen-year old, is left paralyzed from the waist down after a car accident, she feels that her life is over. While at a physio session, Willy meets Ben, who is involved in therapeutic horseback riding to help with his juvenile arthritis. Ben persuades her to give it a try, and the riding gives Willy back the partial use of her legs. While still recovering, she develops a strong bond with Sand, a spirited rescue horse at the stable who was injured, and now spooks easily. When her friend Ben disappears after becoming depressed, Willy secretly takes Sand from the stable — against the orders of the stable owner — to find him. But Ben is not in his right mind, and Sand is easily spooked. The fate of Willy, Ben and Sand all depends on what happens next.

“A galloping good story, with complex, lovable characters, and horses we all want to take home.”
—Marjorie Simmins, author of Year of the Horse
