Synopsis

The Girl Who Rode the Wind by Stacy Gregg

An epic, emotional story of two girls and their bond with beloved horses, the action sweeping between Italy during the Second World War and present day. When Lola's grandmother Loretta takes her to Siena, Italy, for the summer, Lola learns of her family's history of heartbreak and adventure, stretching back to the Second World War. In 1945, Loretta's nickname was 'The Daredevil' due to her fearless competing in the town's famous Palio horse races - until war broke out and led to sadness and loss for Loretta. Lola jumps at the chance to enter the modern-day Palio on a beautiful horse called Nico - can she win, in honour of her beloved grandmother? And solve a mystery that will bring happiness and hope to Loretta?

About the Author

Stacy Gregg

The author of seventeen books, Stacy Gregg has reinvigorated the pony genre with her two popular series Pony Club Secrets and Pony Club Rivals.

Stacy Gregg understands the desperation of wannabe horsey girls who want a pony of their own. She spent many frustrating horse-less years training her bewildered dog to showjump in the back yard until her parents gave in and she got her first pony – a sway-backed brown mare named Bonnie. She currently rides a rather uppity, difficult chestnut gelding called Jasper and dreams of owning a posh Andalusian stallion.

A former high-profile fashion editor (she was a judge on the New Zealand version of TV’s Next Top Model and editor-at-large of Fashion Quarterly Magazine), Gregg has no regrets about trading her Christian Louboutins for life in gumboots. She lives in Auckland with her partner Michael, their nine-year-old daughter and assorted animals.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
