Will she find the last horses on earth?

Serendipity lives inside a walled city. Before her mother died, she gave Seren an old figurine of a horse. Horses no longer exist in Serendipity's world, but when she discovers a map that may lead her to real horses, she starts on a journey that will take her far from everything she knows. Traveling with an orphan boy, Tab, and his beloved dog, she's soon on the run from a powerful and dangerous man who will do anything to make sure Serendipity never leaves the walled city again.

Zillah Bethell's middle-grade fiction debut A Whisper of Horses is original, breathtaking, adventurous, and moving. It is a story of friendship, perseverance, and resilience that readers won't soon forget.
