The Princess and the Foal by Stacy Gregg
Princess Haya, daughter of the King of Jordan, loves her family more than anything. So when tragedy strikes at its heart, she is devastated. The Princess becomes ever more withdrawn until, on her birthday, the King gives her a life-changing present. An incredible new friendship grows and the heartbroken princess begins to dream of an extraordinary future.
Inspired by the real-life story of Olympic equestrienne Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein and set against the exotic backdrop of Arabia, this novel is destined to become a modern classic. A former journalist, Stacy undertook extensive research for this book, travelling to Jordan at the request of Princess Haya. Given unprecedented access to the palaces and royal stables, she conducted lengthy interviews with Her Royal Highness, Her family and friends to bring 'The Princess and the Foal' to life.
