Penny's an irascible young girl who thinks old people are boring and the idea of being seen in a pretty pink dress is gross. But through her diary we see her open up to Mrs. Bettany a lonely widow who lives at a nursing home. The two find each other kindred spirits, talking about their lives and love of horses. Rebecca Macauley has a lot of fun performing this audiobook speeding along like a highly opinionated young girl excitedly making new discoveries, and also voicing the earnest, steadfast Mrs. Bettany with calm serenity. There's a lot of humor and a lot of heart here that will delight listeners, young and old.
