For Garth, the 'For Sale' sign at the gates represents the final ruin of the de Granvilles of Hartslove. His Mother has vanished, his father’s only consolation is brandy - that, and hopeless bets on race-horses to revive their fortunes. As prospective buyers descend, only The One can save them; if only The One can win The Derby ... Everyone knows this cannot be; everyone except his indomitable, disabled sister Daisy, who believes in this unpredictable red horse. But time’s running out; odds are against her. Surely this race cannot be won ...
With its complex, distinctive characters this absorbing Victorian family story has a dash of everything - scheming servants, guardian angels, darkest despair, thwarted romance, pluckiness, even a spot of haunting – with a nail-biting climax.
