After her mother is killed in a riding accident, Harry and her untrained two-year-old colt are sent to live on Aunt Sarah and Uncle Clayton's Vermont hillside farm. There, spirited Harry must learn to live with her domineering aunt and her family's shrouded past. Her only escape is a seven-mile ride to school, if only she can tame the wild colt enough to ride him....
