“Tessa Compton is broken-hearted when she has to leave her filly, Asva, in England and accompany her father to South Africa. But she finds South Africa a beautiful country with warm sunshine and lovely flowers. Although ponies seem very difficult to obtain, much to her surprise she does find Happy, who has been sadly neglected, and a stray dog to care for. She also finds an intriguing mystery.”
