Featherston in the Second World War is a tough and bleak place for fourteen-year-old Bella. Her father is away fighting overseas, while his family fight to save their farm from ruin and keep his dreams alive. Bella, her mother, and older sister have to cope with a herd of dairy cows, an unscrupulous neighbour who covets the farm, and a crazy, bad-tempered racehorse called Gipsy. Bella is terrified of the horse and doesn't know where to turn. When help is offered from an unlikely source, will she have the courage to accept it or will Gipsy destroy her father's dreams?

Joanna Odds on
Set in New Zealand during World War 2, this story tells of survival against the odds, and the unexpected friends you make along the way. Brocker paints her characters in vivid colours, from the dastardly Bloodsworth, through the cryptic tramp, China Joe, Bella's haughty, fed up sister, and the Bella herself. This is a compelling book, with a beautiful woven plot that at the same time will form an excellent introduction for young people to New Zealand in the closing years of WW2, and the many shades of grey you will encounter in life.
