This semi-historical novel was written by a woman from midwestern USA, therefore I feel the historical essence to be suspect though she does seem knowledgeable about horses and people. Hence the mid grade judgement.
The Sport of Baronets
A beautiful story that proved enlightening about horse racing in the 1800’s and the people who were involved with the raising and training. The characters were also quite natural to the story. A unique story line that depicts how hate and revenge can destroy families.
