Meg has never known loss. Until her heart-horse drops dead underneath her in the show ring.
Jared has been living with loss ever since his father died in a tragic farming accident.
Meg escapes her grief by changing everything about her life; moving away to spend the summer on an island in the St. Lawrence River. New place. New job. No horses.
Once there, she meets Jared; working hard to keep anything else in his life from changing.
When Jared offers Meg a scruffy appaloosa mare out of a friend’s back field, it’s the beginning of a journey that will change them both by summer’s end.
