Shadrach’s filly Gladly has arrived at the farm (this is good) as has a boy named Eden from a Social Welfare Home (not so good). Hannah is full of generosity towards him; Sky and Mikey are deeply suspicious. Hannah’s generosity doesn’t go as far though as sharing her precious horse. Sky and Mikey form a hostile alliance and Hannah copes by weaving wonderful new stories for Eden. But Hannah doesn’t foresee that the invitation into her imaginary world will lead Eden and Gladly into great danger.
