My favourite book as a teenager by my favourite writer at the time, this book is as fabulous now as it was then (and I'm just as much in love with Ned Rowland as I ever was!) If you love Regency drama, a bit of romance, a bit of crime and some rather fabulous horses as well as flawed but loveable hero and a bit of genuine 'bromance' this is worth the read. Wonderful Victor Ambrus illustrations as well.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. I have enjoyed K M Peyton’s books since I was a young teen but had never read this one. I wasn’t that keen on reading it after reading the description as I am not that fond of historical novels. But quickly got into it and found it enthralling.
