'I absolutely love Snow Foal - it's so truthful, tender and touching. A book to read in a day and remember for a lifetime.' - Dame Jacqueline Wilson
A beautiful and heart-wrenching middle grade debut full of love, healing, friendship and hope. Perfect for fans of Jacqueline Wilson, Cathy Cassidy, Pax and Gill Lewis.
When eleven-year-old Addie goes to stay with a foster-care family on a remote Exmoor farm in the midst of a very cold winter, she is full of hurt, anger and a deep mistrust of everyone around her. Until one day, when she rescues a tiny wild foal from the moorland snow and Addie discovers that perhaps she’s not so alone after all.
And as adventure and unexpected friendship blossom, Addie is determined that both of them will know what is to be home again soon . . .
' A mesmerising new voice' - Joanna Nadin
'A tender, lyrical tale for a cold winter's night that will lift the spirits and warm the heart' - Steve Voake
