Set against the colorful and magical backdrop of Ireland, The Grey Horse chronicles a time when the Irish people suffered under harsh English overlords who sought to destroy their culture and way of life. Into the Irish town of Carraroe, a magnificent, completely grey stallion appears. The horse brings with him the promise of better times and magical happenings, for he is actually the shape-shifted form of Ruairi MacEibhir, journeyed to a time of danger in order to win the hand of the woman he loves.

Having married into an Irish family and also owning a Connemara pony I was first intrigued by this book. It was a delightful listen and captivated my imagination and curiosity. My daughter enjoyed it thoroughly as well! The weaving of tails with truth where lines are blurred is delightful.

Well written. Excellent recording. Gripping story. I listened with my 10 year old daughter. We love Phil Putnam's others and enjoyed this as well.
