Summary

Seventeen-year-old Simon’s sister Charlotte is missing. The lonely Fenland village the family recently moved to from London is odd, silent, and mysterious. Simon is epileptic and his seizures are increasing in severity, but when he is told of the local curse of the Naseby Horses, he is convinced it has something to do with Charlotte’s disappearance. Despite resistance from the villagers, the police, and his own family, Simon is determined to uncover the truth, and save his sister. 

Under the oppressive Fenland skies and in the heat of a relentless June, Simon’s bond with Charlotte is fierce, all-consuming, and unbreakable; but can he find her? And does she even want to be found?

Drawing on philosophy, science, and the natural world, The Naseby Horses is a moving exploration of the bond between a brother and his sister; of love; and of the meaning of life itself.

Atmospheric

Wonderful descriptions of life in the Fens, as the mysterious story unfolds. The narration is worth the cost alone - superb!

A Hidden Gem!

This story was captivating, the narration was incandescent. I was so caught up in this audiobook it was hard to turn it off. It skillfully entwines the story of a brother and sister (twins) who have moved from the city to the country when a catastrophe happens. The link between the two and the teenage boy's life with epilepsy pull you into this dark but beautiful way he sees the world. The family struggles with their past and present and it will break you heart. I cried more than once - I was on the edge of my seat and loved every minute. I can imagine this made into a movie - seriously. The images were so vivid in my mind - a combination of the entrancing narration of Robin Morrison and the immaculately crafted words of Brownlow. You should listen to this audiobook. It's a great one, maybe off the beaten path, but well worth the buy. I have listen twice, and I rarely do that.
