DNF after 3 chapters. Unfortunately I have a huge backlog of books to review, so if my current book doesn't hold my attention after the first few chapters I will DNF it.

This is a story of adventure, home problems, growing in midst of hatred because you are different, and love. I was surprised as I thought I was going to give this book to my teenage granddaughter. But I loved it.
The Irish when they came to America were not treated right by others. They were accused of things without many caring if it was true or not.
Mr. Stocking rescued both Nuala (Billy) and Daniel and took them under his wing. Both had different circumstances. Nuala's father was abusing her. So Mr. Stocking bought her. Daniel was in trouble for made up stories one person passed as truth. He became like a father to both of them.
What makes a father? One who beats you and treats you bad. Or one who is willing to put everything on the line no matter the cost? Daniel, Mr. Stocking and Billy became a family. They met up with a friend of Mr. Stocking's. Daniel and Billy loved working with the horses. They could not stand to see the horses mistreated and were able to train them with kindness.
Hardships and problems in life can change at the kindness of a stranger.
Peddlers, performers, or whatever a family was formed out of love.
