Author Jennifer Walker writes the story of a girl, Leslie Clark, who works hard to achieve her dream and desire of showing and owning a horse. Ms. Walker shows the many contrasts between Leslie, the daughter of a working-class widower, and the other girls, whose families can easily afford to support their equine hobbies.
There are several worthwhile messages contained within the books. Kids, 'tweens and teens can learn that age does not necessarily diminish value if you treat things right; that perseverance and hard work can pay back beyond your wildest dreams when you are sincere; that how you treat other people is the true measure of who you are, not money, clothes, or things. There are other lessons, as well.
The characters are engaging. The story is well-paced. The syntax may include some new terms for those new to the world of horses, but it is a good opportunity for people of all ages to learn new facts and vocabulary. It is a feel-good story, the first in a series, and I am looking forward to the next!
