A middle-aged woman's limitations and a young man's ambitions create a combustible romantic mixture under the gaze of an equine guardian.
"Romance was out of the question. There were flirtatious boys at church but no deeper relationships resulted. Tess became bold enough to ask on of them what was wrong with her daughter. 'There's nothing wrong with her,' the young man said. 'It's just that she lives in a world of her own. She only wants to talk about horses and trains.'
That was in 1988. There were no suitors thereafter. The word had gotten around that 'the Metzger girl's a space cadet.' Angie scarcely noticed that boys no longer came to call."
