'Word of a good deed travels far. Word of a bad deed travels even farther.' When Robyn Panek is summoned by her ailing Uncle Pal to operate his pony ring for one final season, her initial reaction is resistance. After all, it has been a long twenty-two years since she's returned to the beloved Massachusetts farm, the idyllic spot where she spent the vacations of her youth. Pulled back by forces even stronger than her memories, Robyn must now try to piece together the events of that final, fateful childhood summer, when a dark mystery and chilling rumours swirled about her former friend Lucy Dragon. Seeking to finally uncover the truth abouth Lucy's strange and sudden vanishing, Robyn's own future begins to seem every bit as uncertain as Uncle Pal's beloved ponies as she braces herself to confront a past from which she ran so long ago, and to come to terms with the life she has since made for herself.
