Sue Garnett

I have little info on this author. As far as I know this was her only foray into the pony book territory although she did write a number of non-fiction text books on writing. Her one pony novel has a very slight Christian theme (the heroine's father is a Vicar and prayer is important to the family) but not enough to put off the atheist reader and it is an excellent story.

Paperback original.
SUMMARY: When horse-mad Cassie moves to her new home in the Lake District and finds out there is a trekking centre next door she is overjoyed. But she is hated and despised by Ruth, the unpleasant daughter of the centre's owner. Even when she is allowed to work there in exchange for rides, her enjoyment is spoilt by Ruth's resentment. But when she finds out Ruth is unhappy and does not get on with her father, Cassie feels sorry for the girl. Can she persuade her to become friends?
PONYMAD RATING: 4 HORSESHOES

Collectors info:
Published in paperback only. A fairly rare book, especially outside of the UK. Will usually cost a lot more than your average paperback but occaisionally can be found cheaply on the internet.
