The Lovereading4Kids comment
A perfect story for pony-lovers in which Jenny secretly befriends a wild stallion on the island of Lundy. It is heart-rending but ultimately uplifting and it will bring you close to tears at times. It takes its inspiration from a legendary wild Lundy stallion called Midnight who lived on Lundy. Midnight and 12 year old Jenny forge an incredible bond but that is broken when Midnight is forced to leave the island and Jenny is sent off to boarding school. How they discover each other again is a rollercoaster read. The writing is absolutely excellent and the reader will be gripped to the pages, particularly any child (or parent in fact) who loves ponies and/or Lundy. Victoria Eveleigh is one of the best contemporary writers of pony stories around. Click here to view Victoria's Exmoor Pony trilogy.

* Lundy is truly special. Its attraction is as a retreat from modern life. It is a place for birdwatchers, divers, climbers, plant enthusiasts, archaeologists and geologists or those who simply want to enjoy its beauty and unique environment. Recognised as one of the most important sites for nature conservation in the UK – home to rare species of bird, insect, mammal, marine and plant life; Lundy is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and England’s only statutory Marine Nature Reserve. It is situated in the middle of the Bristol Channel to the west of Ilfracombe in North Devon and to the south of Pembroke in Wales.

A Stallion Called Midnight by Victoria Eveleigh
Midnight is a wild stallion who won't let anyone tame him. Anyone, that is, except Jenny - but that's their secret. Jenny dreads the day she'll have to leave him on their island home and go away to school, especially as rumours are spreading that Midnight is dangerous. How can Jenny keep Midnight safe and free if she's not there to protect him?
