Ar fheirm mhuintir La Tour in Nova Scotia atá Gealach, ceann de na capaill rása is fearr i gCeanada. Agus í á tabhairt i mbád trasna an chuain, titeann Gealach san fharraige. Sa cheo trom imíonn an capall as radharc. Cuirtear saol na feirme bunoscionn.

Diúltaíonn an cúpla, Jack agus Liz, glacadh leis go bhfuil Gealach báite, agus téann siad ar a tóir. Ach tá an t-am ag sleamhnú: tá fiacha móra ar an bhfeirm agus, gan Gealach, caillfidh siad an teach agus gach rud atá acu. Ní hamháin sin, ach tá searrach á iompar ag Gealach agus má tá sí fós beo, caithfidh siad teacht uirthi go tapa!

On the La Toure family farm in Nova Scotia lives Gealach, one of the best race horses in Canada. While being transported across the harbour in a boat, Gealach falls in the sea. In the heavy fog the horse disappears from sight. Life on the farm is turned upside down.

The twins, Jack and Liz, refuse to believe that Gealach has drowned and go in search of the horse. But time is running out: they have mounting debt on the farm and, without Gealach, they will lose their home and everything they own. Not only that, but Gealach is with foal, and if she’s still alive they must find her quickly!

This novel was awarded an Oireachtas Literary Prize in 2010.
