A gentle story about 11-year-old Lindy, who is finding it very difficult to adapt to having a new stepmother, now her father has remarried after the death of her mother. She and her mother had a plan for Lindy to save for a pony and buy a foal. Eventually, Lindy has saved enough to go to the local Sale and buy a foal, but she gets rather more than she bargained for!

 

Many thanks to Hannah Fleetwood for the picture.
