Morven and the Horse Clan
By Luanne Armstrong
This is a great young adult fiction novel. It is inspiring and mesmerizing and kids of all ages will absolutely love it.
This novel is a bit apocalyptic in tone in that it focuses on a killer drought that forces people to make huge changes in their lives just to succeed.
Morven is a regular teenager except for the fact that she prefers her own company. So, she takes the time to befriend a hard of wild horses. They give her company and the unconditional love that she so needs and deserves. How great!
In the process, Morven becomes very knowledgeable about horses. She loves those graceful beings–and never plans to let them go. Except she meets a brash young man who wants to learn as much as he can about horses from Morven. Are his intentions innocent?
This is a GREAT novel for horse lovers. One theme that runs through the book is that the love horses give could help one survive a lot of devastation.
Great book by a Canadian author from British Columbia.
