Though both manage to survive the tragedy, the impact on their lives is devastating; both horse and girl are traumatised and profoundly changed.
Beside herself with worry, Grace’s mother, Annie Macean, hears about a man called Tom Brooker, a ‘whisperer’ said to possess the gift of healing troubled horses.

This journey, under the sweeping Montana sky, will change all their lives for ever . . .
