They are the Carradynes, who for more than 200 years have bred and trained horses of the finest caliber on Cornanagh - a land so beautiful it inspires the soul.But all is not idyllic at hearth and home. At the centre of the conflict is Catriona, the youngest child, a girl who dreams of riding her family's big jumpers and show horses. Her father, Michael, is keenly aware of her immense talent, and he urges her on - only to lock wills with his insufferably pious and overbearing wife, Isobel, a woman who cannot bear horses, who cannot bear his touch. Her goal is to put stiff dresses, tight shoes, and perfect manners on Catriona.
It is a stalemate of pride and passion - until the day Lady Selina Healy enters their lives. Poised, beautiful, and warm, she too knows imprisonment in a loveless marriage, she too admires good horses, she too finds enchantemt in Cornanagh. She falls in love...with Catriona, who becomes the child she never had; with the splendid lush land; and with Michael, the consummate horseman and gantleman...
