I was hoping for so much more from this book especially as Zara is such an interesting individual. It was clear that this was not an autorised biography as it lacked depth and points were often repeated on numerous other occasions. The book did give a vague outline to the kind of life Zara is likely to lead and it also spoke of her equestrian brilliance.

An OK book but I eagerly await Zara's own account of her life so far and her acheivements in the equestrian world.
