When venture capitalist Luc Deschaines' daughter Stephanie is accepted by his Ivy League alma mater, the proud father arranges for her to spend her summer before college on the Round Top Ranch, one of his Texas investments. Where better for her to enjoy a few months of riding, swimming in the creek, and improving her Spanish language skills?
Luc has no qualms about leaving her in the care of the ranch's manager and his large, close-knit family. Stephanie spends long days in the saddle on Elena Sauseda's breathtaking blue roan mare.
But then, as the days grow shorter and it's time to leave for school, it all comes crashing down. Does Stephanie's dream become her father's nightmare?
And what becomes of Silver Dollar, the beautiful pale horse? If she can't be sold, can she be given away? If she can't leave the ranch, does her new owner become a resident of the RTR?
Readers who enjoy Contemporary Women's Fiction will relish this coming-of-age story with its small-town rural setting and the tangled relationships between parents and children and between friends, as well as romance and drama.
