The spirit of Connemara shines in four exciting audiobooks about a girl and a foal during the time of the Norman invasion. In Audiobook One, Lara, the kind-hearted daughter of a cattle baron, tends to her family's herd in the Irish highlands, where she rescues an orphaned foal. In a heated battle, both are kidnapped by a warring clan. In Audiobook Two, as the foal matures, Lara becomes a competent horsewoman and decides to search for her family, only to find that her homeland has been destroyed. Audiobook Three finds Lara back with the clan. Recognized for her great skills, she is traded, along with the horse, to Norman invaders. In Audiobook Four, the series concludes as Lara finds purpose in training nuns to breed horses.
