It's not that Nandalie Bobs doesn't believe in reincarnation, she's just never given it much thought. Until she meets Celtic Summer, a haughty Arabian mare with a temperament at odds with her beauty. Nandalie can't place what she sees in those mysterious equine eyes, she only knows she is part of it. Part of the past, and part of the powerful soul that looks back at her.

I think the fact that I read this book in only a week speaks for itself! The author has a unique style of writing and once I got used to it, I really enjoyed the story. I loved the relationship between girl and horse, particularly in their previous lives together, and became engrossed in the story of a Celtic charioteer torn between her culture and her love for a Roman centurion. A very enjoyable read!

I actually read this twice. I loved the characters and how the author beautifully described the land changing during a drought. Really took me to dwell on the relationship I have with my mare. The history was unknown to me, had no idea of this era, of such strong women in battle. A story told with strength and beauty.
