The stories Hannah Gale's father told her of breaking wild horses in Nevada one glorious summer when he was her age have captured her imagination.After her dad is called up to fight in Iraq, she regularly stops to watch the horses at the nearby stable to feel closer to him, and finally gathers the nerve to ask the manager for a job. There, she helps bring a rescued mare back from the brink, takes her first riding lesson, and witnesses the birth of a filly who steals her heart.
Hannah believes the worst is over when her dad returns from the war, but soon she realizes her family's fight is only just beginning. When his nightmares rock the household, it is the horses Hannah turns to for comfort. Can the horses help teach her dad the same lessons of survival and hope they've taught her?
