"The Island Horse" by Susan Hughes was a wonderful Children's book about
horses and historical fiction. This novel will be dealing with tough decisions,
moving pass loss and grief...along with tought hardships and friendships. We
find that Ellie has lost her mother and her father is now having to leave Scota to find a more stable job on the Sable Island. Now, Ellie will have to leave her mom's resting place along with her friends. After arriving in Stable Ellie awakens to find she is looking at a wild stallion and she befriends it only to find out later it could be taken from it's home, its herd and Ellie. What will come of this? Will Ellie loose the island horse she has named Orchid too?

"The Island Horse" is about the "about loss, love, friendship and findling strength through it all." Also, there will be some history of Sable Island and its struggles of living on a very dangerous place. Will Ellie be able to make friends? Now, this is when I say you must pick up "The Island Horse" to find out what the author has for the reader. In your read the scenery, characters come together of so well making you seem like you are there. The book cover is beautiful display only adding to what is between the covers.

If you love horses or historical fiction...then I would recommend "The Island Horse" for you.
