Nine O'Clock Horses

A seralized story by Angela Ewing

Story Time: Nine O’Clock Horses, Episode 28

Amelia wasn’t sure she should be going back to England after so long, but she had a ticket from her daughter and of course, she had to use it. Things had changed in the village, but not the path to the bridge where she and Colin used to meet. When she sees the field of cowslips, the scented yellow flowers seem to beckon her to explore. Plodding through the wet grass to the field gate, she is totally unprepared for what she is about to discover.
