Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Patricia is thrilled when her father decides that she's finally old enough to learn to ride. But her dreams of having a beautiful horse of her own are dashed when he takes her to a stable in Dogpatch, the rundown section of town. Patricia is sure that she'll never learn anything in a place like that. But it's in Dogpatch that Patricia meets two individuals--kind, patient Mrs. Mack and a glorious chestnut mare named Penny--who help her overcome her fears, and change her life forever. Powerfully written, beautifully told, and brought to life with rich watercolor illustrations, this is a story that will touch the heart of everyone who reads it.

Synopsis:

The bestselling author of "Rechenka's Eggs" and "The Keeping Quilt" shares a story of her childhood hero in this tribute to a woman who knew that working with and riding horses could test young people and change them in remarkable ways. A "Smithsonian Magazine" Notable Book of the Year. Full color.
