Can a wild horse, a girl and a mad woman unite to make dreams come true?
Blue Cloud, a Kaimanawa horse, belongs to the wind and rain and to the earth and sky. She tells her own poignant life story in chapters cleverly interlaced with those of Grace, a girl who hopes Hinehopu's wishing tree will grant her wish of owning a horse. Will the Fruitcake, a woman the townsfolk say is bonkers, be able to complete the triangle and bring them altogether?
A book to make you laugh, cry and challenge your perceptions of both humans and animals.
