Overview

The inspiring novel about real life princess and equestrienne Haya of Jordan.

Princess Haya loves her family more than anything–especially her mother who brings light and happiness into King Hussein’s house. So when Queen Alia is killed in a tragic accident, Princess Haya is devastated. Knowing how unhappy she is and how much she loves horses, Haya’s father, King Hussein, gives her a special present: a foal of her very own. And this foal changes Princess Haya’s world completely.

Set in an exotic locale where royalty is real, this story of a determined modern-day princess is both beautiful and awe-inspiring. Perfect for fans of Black Beauty, Misty of Chincoteague and anyone who wonders what it’s like to be a real princess.
