That's what I call luxury--a horse to ride around with. And then Mr. What's-his-name? I can't remember. Oh, yes, Spafford.

I own a hardback copy of this book. It is a moving, very sweet story of a young girl who loves innocently and completely. Written in a time when Honor and obligation to your family truly meant something.

Grace Livingston Hill writes lovely stories of a time long gone. I recommend this book.
