When Samphire suddenly disappears Jodie’s needs all her courage and determination to find him and bring him back.

Synopsis

Samphire Song by Jill Hucklesby

This is a powerful, uplifting story about a girl and her spirited horse, fighting against the odds. The first time I saw Samphire, I knew he was the one. He was wild, troubled, broken - and he wouldn't let me ride him. But there was an instant connection so powerful I couldn't ignore it. Maybe he knew that I was broken too? Slowly, we learned to trust one another, and now we have a bond so strong that nothing can break it. It's like we can see into each other's souls. So the day he disappeared from my world, it felt like my life was over, all over again. But I will find him - I'll make it my mission.
