"For Love of a Horse" is the first book of the series, and, though it might not be my personal favorite of the whole lot, is well worth a youngster's reading to kick off a great series. In it Jinny first determines to save a mistreated Arab mare, "Yasmin the killer Horse", from her cruel circus master... and of course refuses to listen to the logical response of her family that "there is nothing you can do." For any young reader interested in horses, or just determined to change the world for the better, this book rings true to the heart.
FOr love of a horse is very touching and any other horse crazy kids will probably have an easy time relating to jinny, her dreams, and her obsticles. If you run across a copy of this book BUY IT at any cost. If you know of copies of OTHERS< PLEASE tell me?
The plot threads are woven into quite a complex narrative--there are family and friend issues (Ken, especially, is a fascinating character to find in the "preteen" market), social concerns bubbling under the surface, animal rights arguments to be made, and of course, explorations of acculturation--both of Ginny and of Shantih.
This book can be enjoyed as an adult as well as a child. It's one I've wished would be made into a movie for years--it has EVERYTHING! Adventure, scenery, danger, triumph. Unfortunately, studios don't seem to know the book exists.
Does anybody know to whom I'd write to find out about getting scriptwriting rights? If they aren't going to do it, maybe I'll tackle it myself!
