1911. The forces of war are building across Europe but Somerset, where the rhythms of lives are dictated by the seasons and the land, remains untouched. Leo, a talented rider and son of the under keeper to the head groundskeeper, grows up alongside Lord Prideaux's spirited daughter, Charlotte. Leo prefers the company of animals, especially horses, to that of humans. His cousin, Herbert, is jealous when the head groom allows Leo to assist with the master's horses.

I have been reading books for 60 years and this is in my top 10 best read.

Seasons in Somerset circa 1911 with horse-loving, twelve-year-old Leo and his brothers and sister, the children of a carter who works the master's estate. Maybe more than anyone could possibly want to know about pre-WWI farming techniques, but at the same time, the story of "the boy" and his special affinity for horses is engaging. Part One of a trilogy.
