Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tsarist Russia teeters on the brink of revolution while it engages in a war against the Germans and Austrians. The Bolsheviks simmer and seethe as the Russian Army concentrates on the invaders rather than the revolutionists within. The wealthy Milanov children are at the center of the storm, and the changing winds of time and politics will push them apart. Both siblings grew up on top of horses, as many in the privileged class did, but their skill and mounts are beyond comparison. Catrina's horse, Mouka, is an extension of herself, the embodiment of her fiery spirit. And her brother, Joseph, shares the same close bond with his golden stallion, Majesty. When war and pride divide the siblings, Catrina selflessly offers a trade, one horse for the other, and tearfully says goodbye to both brother and equestrian friend. But her indomitable will smolders within her, burning with hope for a reunion with her beloved brother after he goes off to fight the Huns. Soon, more than heartache is threatening the Milanov family as the Bolshevik Revolution boils over Russia. Fleeing for her life, Catrina once more relies on her fierce spirit to bluff and charm her way out of one situation after another, finally securing passage to America, land of opportunity. More than one harrowing escapade bonds rider and horse, but just as freedom and safety seem within sight, Majesty is suddenly missing. Tired, poor, huddled, and homeless, Catrina steps onto American soil without family or a single familiar face, not even her lone, remaining friend, Majesty.
