Forbidden Love

An equine love story heals a mini-Civil War between a family of Yankees and a clan of rebels.

"Stonerside was on a roll now. 'The war didn't last much longer, and I found my way back to my home place south of Aiken. Everyone was really glad to see me; they thought I'd been killed in the war. I could see a lot of new horses had come to the farm since I'd left to fight the graycoats. It wasn't until the following morning, however, that I saw her. I couldn't believe it. The filly! The one I'd fallen in love with after the battle in Aiken. When I began to gallop off toward the fence that separated our pastures, though, my father called me back.

'Son,' he said, 'stay away from those horses over there. They're Northern horses and - you know - not our kind.'"

Nights of Horseplay - coming September from BLS Aiken.
