The 12-year-old Christina, an orphan, is sent off to Flambards. There live her uncle, and her two cousins, Mark and Will. Mark is deeply unsympathetic, but Christina does make friends with Will, and also discovers a passion for horses. Then Christina is stunned by Mark’s proposal, but her feelings for Will win out, despite a dramatic last minute chase by Mark on his grey Woodpigeon.
