Publisher's Summary

From one of Australia's best-selling and much-loved authors comes a sweeping, powerful story of a young woman who has to overcome terrible loss and trauma to find the courage to live life on her terms. 

Following the disappearance of her mother when she was just a young child, Drift has been raised by her father, growing up to work alongside him as an itinerant cattle drover along the beautiful coastline of remote Western Australia. It's a tough life, but nurtured and taught by two wise women - Wilma, a gentle travelling librarian, and straight-talking Charlie, the legendary mobile saddler - Drift grows up to become a confident, idealistic young woman.

But the world Drift lives in can be ugly and brutal. After a frightening assault, Drift meets a handsome young stockman, but he is not all that he seems and she is drawn into a baffling world of lies and mysteries, centering on a lushly beautiful property called The Planet, run by a wealthy American woman. When Drift's father is hospitalized following a tragic accident, and the young man she loves disappears, Drift has to find the courage to make her own way in the world. Drawing upon the deep well of women's wisdom taught her by Charlie and Wilma, Drift has to overcome heartbreak, betrayal, loneliness, and pain in order to forge her path, own her truth, and create the kind of world that she wants to live in.

Drift is a heroine to cheer for, and White Horses is a novel full of authentic Australian heart and soul, warmth and humor, as big and as generous as those wide-open skies in Western Australia. Offering a vision of a vibrant and thriving rural Australia based on Treasure's own experience and knowledge of regenerative agriculture, White Horses is both inspiring and captivating; another classic from the much-loved author of the iconic and best-selling novels Jillaroo and The Farmer's Wife.

"Treasure writes with true grit, wit and warmth." (Australian Women's Weekly

"This isn't classic Rachael Treasure. This is even better. Treasure has produced a polished, heart-wrenching and hopeful novel that will thrill old fans and garner many new ones." (Better Reading)

Disappointing

I’m a fan of Rachael Treasures but this book required a lot of patience for the magnitude of chapters without much story, the short sentences and excessive pauses. I was really looking forward to an inspiring story and was so disappointed by the trials that the lead character was put through that I quit listening 3/4 of the way through.

Heartwarming & down to earth

An engaging story from Rachael Treasure. The style is again of down-to-earth rural Australia, but in a coastal setting for a change and with a strong message about the future of Australian farming.
The characters are relatable, but you have to endure their hardships, which can be a bit much at times.
The narration was clear, but a bit stilted.
