|Set in Brisbane and the Darling Downs in the 1960s, the story centres around the unusual bond formed between immigrant girl Mary Lothian and a champion racehorse of uncertain temperament trained by veterinarian Frank Greville. It also chronicles Mary''s coming-of-age, an often difficult journey as she strives to conform to the strict moral, societal and gender expectations of the day. The action shifts between city and country, with microcosms of rural living and the often hard-fought immigrant experience providing an interwoven backdrop.
