Luke lived a lonely childhood in foster care before finally finding acceptance and a home at Harry's place. For three years, Harry taught him how to work with horses. But when Harry dies, Luke's life quickly falls apart. He has a bitter falling out with Harry's son and is afraid of being lost in the foster system again. Feeling unwanted, he heads for the desert, taking little but a moonstone pendant given to him by Jess. He ends up in gulf country in Queensland where three Aboriginal men teach him the strength and self-control he can draw from the land. And when Luke saves an orphaned wild brumby, he thinks he has found his totem animal counterpart. Book Two of the Diamond Spirit trilogy about friendship, courage and finding your dream horse.
