Description: "In Bronze-Age Crete, before horses were common on the island, potter's-daughter Clio continues to raise and train them even though an accident has left her unable to ride. After a series of difficult years in the community, the threat of raiders prompts the town's ruling Lady to demand the sacrifice of a maiden between ages twelve and fourteen, who will be selected at the spring equinox. Certain that she will be named the sacrifice, Clio struggles to go on with the ordinary activities of making pots and preparing the town's defenses. She finds refuge in her horses and a new friendship with younger girl Mika, who takes to riding as naturally as Clio did. Drawing on a spiritual connection with her grandmother Leira, Clio learns to believe that she has the power of choosing her path, and that she, Mika, and the horses may hold the key to saving the town without loss of life."-- Provided by publisher.

She had been dreaming about a horseback riding experience like this for years, but now that she was actually on her way, she was terrified. She had never been away from her family, never mind for a whole month. Would she make friends? Would she be able to keep up with the other girls' riding? When Gillian finds herself paired with Beauty, a beautiful silver-gray mare, the negative voice in her head eases up. But then her fears begin to come true. Snobby Katrina causes an accident that injures Beauty and another rider, Gillian's best friend. Gillian ends up atop the Beast, a horse even the camp counsellors struggle to control. Things only get worse when the Beast leaps into a river with Gillian still in the saddle. Gillian finds herself alone in the wilderness, far from help and facing challenges she never imagined even in her worst nightmares. Will the skills she has learned be enough to save her?"-- Provided by publisher.
