The story of a young girl in a sanatorium and the magical winged horses that only she can see, this is beautifully written, beautifully illustrated, a book that will move all who read it and leave a lasting impression on many. Emmaline is sick with what she calls the ‘stillwaters’, and traumatised too by a terrible event in her past, though this is wartime and her story is not unusual. The adults around her are kind, but her real solace comes from the winged horses she sees in mirrors. When she finds one wounded she determines to save it and, instructed by the mysterious Horse Lord, brings colour into the grey sanatorium. Emmaline is a heroine in the tradition of Mary Lennox, or David Almond’s Mina, an extraordinary, vital character with a vision that transcends her surroundings. ~ Andrea Reece
