February 2013 Book of the Month When lonely Nell is sent to stay with her relatives on a farm she takes with her an extra suitcase packed with a secret. Even before she has unpacked it, the suitcase is stolen by the mysterious Angel, a little girl who is also holding a secret close to her heart. Initially wary of each other, the two girls are brought to trust each other by their twinned desire to save one hundred horses. Touched with magic, this is a tender story of friendship and a joint sense of believing.

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...
