But when her Nana Dale’s will is read, Allie is shocked to discover it has been sold to a developer instead of being left to Allie herself.

This story spans the hopes and dreams of three generations of strong women with strong dreams. Included in these women is Dale Butler whose passion also is horses. The Depression and the shadow looming of World War 2 has destroyed some of these possibilities she had hoped for. But courage and persistence and determination are characterists that abound in these woman as they intend to carry on Nana Dale’s legacy.
