      Lore and legend, mining, geology, and horse racing are combined in this novel young riders will particularly enjoy. Eithne and Mandy are cousins, as different as the ponies they ride. Eithne's Keepsake is plodding; Mandy's is a show-jumper. Mandy dismisses Eithne with her strange power of foreseeing the future, as "weird." Then, just as in a fairy tale, Eithne sees a boy riding a magnificent white horse near the shore of the grey lake. The mystery about them both attracts and disturbs Eithne. Yet stronger than either feeling is an affinity between theme that will reach far beyond her present day world.
