Irina chooses a rocking horse from a junk shop as a Christmas present. Haunted by the story the shopowner tells her about a cruel farmer who beat his horses, she dreams that at night she rides Bella across the fields. The reader is left to decide whether this is reality or Irina's imagination, but there is certainly magic in this short novel about a lonely girl who finds companionship with an animal which she learns is 'God's creature, not hers'.
