Ride with the wind by Anne McCullagh Rennie – Book of the Week 12/08/2013

ride with the wind

Joanna Kingsford is passionate about horses. The scent of leather, sweat and hay, the clatter of hooves — this is the world she shares with her father, the champion trainer Charlie Kingsford. Jo couldn’t be less like Nina, her socialite mother. Nina wants Joanna to pursue more ladylike interests, like modelling and finishing school; Jo can’t think of anything more unlikely, or more dull. But a tragic accident changes everything and Nina sees to it that Jo is kept away from the horses that she loves.

Heartbroken, Jo is determined to prove she has what it takes to succeed as a champion trainer. In England, amid the winter frosts and the northern skies, her career blossoms and she soon finds love. But what of Jo’s long-held dream of following in her father’s footsteps back in Australia? Can the land and skies of home be so easily forgotten?
