Diane has a way with animals. When she gets a job herding horses her employer realizes that it is a rare form of magic and starts to try and convince Diane to trust people as much as she trust animals. But Diane has been so scarred and hurt by people it seems she may never be able to really trust any human.
This is the first book in The Immortals series and IMO the second best. The Immortals is one of my favorite series ever. It is a series full of magic, horses, dragons, and magical beings as well as some of my favorite fictional characters.
