On the night that Chancey is born, a “fire
star” gallops across the sky, a signal that a great horse has entered the
world. But it will take many years of slights and hardships before the orphaned
albino will believe that the prophecy is truly meant for him. First he must
find a home at the Maury River Stables and a girl named Claire who needs him as
much as he needs her. Then, when his aching joints and impending blindness
bring an end to their training together, he must start a new chapter as a
therapeutic horse, healing people with wounds both visible and unseen.
In the manner of a latter-day Black Beauty,
Chancey’s observant voice narrates this absorbing story, filled with fascinating
details of life at the stable and keen insight into equine instinct, human
emotion, and the ineffable bond that connects them both. Download and start listening now!
