Synopsis

A Horse for Angel by Sarah Lean

A beautifully lyrical and emotional stand-alone novel from breakout debut author of 'A Dog Called Homeless'. What would you do to protect your secrets? Nell has packed her emotions away in a suitcase. But after a frightening encounter with a horse the case is stolen. Staying in the country with family she's never met before, Nell is drawn to a mysteriously wild, troubled girl. Angel has a strange affinity with horses and dark secrets she's unwilling to share. Secrets that she'll do anything to protect. But Nell and Angel will discover that to care for the things they love the most they must trust each other, to save a hundred horses...
