Hutchinson, London, 1949
Reprinted 1959, cover by Sheila Rose
Susan is sent from Rhodesia, which she misses desperately, to school on Dartmoor. At first she is difficult: prickly and bolshy, and she lames a pony who has just recovered, as well as alienating herself from most of the girls. As she moves through the school, she realises people are not what they seem at first, and develops her relationships with everyone at the school: equine and human.
