Maple Dale Revisited by Mary Ann Myers

Equine author, Mary Ann Myers, updated her first Maple Dale book with Maple Dale Revisited. But this is not so much a horse story as it is an adventure with young Mindy and her older sister, Bethann, and friends who try to save a small herd of hungry deer during a long winter storm.

Scenes are detailed and characters are likable. The horse stable setting is realistic and in the end conflicts (both human and nature) are resolved. The possibility of a ghost adds to the suspense.

A fun adventure for young readers!
