Lily, an elegant Arabian mare, lives on Nelson Farm surrounded by athletic performance horses. She shares her stall with a goat named Walter and a cat named Boo. Together they observe life on the busy farm, a life that she cannot participate in. Lily has every comfort at Nelson Farm but she does not have a person to call her own, and she is beginning to wonder if she ever will.
When a new chiropractor arrives from Boston, Massachusetts to treat the owner's champion reining horse, Lily discovers that Dr. McCullen has a daughter. Eleven-year-old Micah feels just as out of place at Nelson Farm as Lily does. She has never been to a farm, has never seen a real horse, and is reeling from the sudden loss of her father.
Is this sad girl the person Lily has been waiting for? Can a broken mare help Micah heal? Lily's Song is a celebration of life, of friends found in the most unlikely places, and a tribute to the healing power of love.
The author wove a wonderful story of three friends; a goat, a horse, and a cat. Into their mix a new girl is thrown. What I liked best was the way the five main characters all gave of themselves and by being willing to share, got love, support and friendship in return. The story is held together with the facts that life can be hard and painful, but the love of friends can make it magical. Great read for anyone who loves horses, or would like to get acquainted with them. Gave a copy to my granddaughter for her birthday. Can't give a higher recommendation than that. Loved this story.
