I read this to my girls at night before bed and am surprised that they looked forward to the next installment each night. I found it a bit slow, but it is a tale of transformation - how a day-dreamer boy takes on the real life task of "gentling" a filly with "wild" blood. Confronting reality and growing up - it is at times sad, but love pulls him through.
