The Lovereading4Kids comment
August 2013 Guest Editor, Lauren St John "Without doubt this is the book that inspired me most as a child. At the time I was living on a farm in Zimbabwe in Southern Africa and had a black horse called Morning Star and it seemed to me that the way I felt about him and Jinny Manders felt about the chestnut Arab mare she rescued from a circus in For Love of a Horse was identical. This series is just brilliant in every way. It begins when Jinny and her family move to remote Finmory in the Scottish Highlands and features a cast of wonderful characters, the best of which are headstrong, artistic Jinny and Shantih, her half-wild Arab horse. I also adore Ken, a mysterious boy with a troubled past and comes and goes like the wind. I’ve read each book at least five times and would happily do so again."
For the Love of a Horse by Patricia Leitch
Jinny walked on, seeing the hills sleeked smooth after the day’s sun and the far, mirror glint of the sea. Yet, more clearly than any of these, she saw the reaching neck of the Arab, her winnowing fringe of mane and her ears alive to the sound of her rider’s voice as Jinny rode her home to Finmory.
Follow wilful Jinny Manders to the wilds of Finmory in the Scottish Highlands and fall in love with free spirit, Shantih.
