When Thomas Rose first spots the girl concealed in a ditch outside his rural village, she looks as drab as a lark, blending with the English countryside. Only her bright-red kerchief gives her away. Yet French Hélène, who goes by “Ling” ;- ;for the year is 1757, and England and France are at war ; — ; is no ordinary bird. She is tiny and agile, with huge dark eyes and hair as black as plums. Ling enchants Thomas with tales of the circus, where she danced atop Belladonna, a pure-white horse with a tail the color of barley. But the leader of the troupe has sold Belladonna, and as Ling and Thomas set out to find her and fetch her back ;— ; with help from a mysterious painter and anatomist ; — ; Thomas knows that his simple life, that of a clever but unschooled wheelwright’s son, is about to change forever. Acclaimed author Mary Finn has crafted a lyrical coming-of-age story about a boy, a girl, and a horse ; — ; and about how a chance encounter can lead to a life of daring, intrigue, and learning, a life beyond imagining.

    " I liked the message in this book, but I ended up skimming a lot of pages because it was boring. Not one of my favorites, but I'm glad I read it. "

    " A nice story if a bit flirty wit wrong and right Vs. legal and illegal. The historical aspects were interesting and i love the intimate take on a bright person suffering with dyslexia. having my own personal battle with that cross, made this portrait all the more sharply felt and loveable. "
