Set in the 1920s, orphan Maddie lives with her grandparents. Then her brother Theo comes back from Zanzibar, bringing back with him a magnificent horse. Maddie loves the horse, but is not quite so sure about her brother. One dark night another young man turns up at the estate: his name, he says, is Theo. So who is the right brother?
