Seeing an opportunity to at last best her rival, she begins weaving the unsuspecting India into the glamorous world of the Blythes and Whistlejacket Thoroughbreds.

How and why does BlueBuckle decide that life is worth living after all?
How do Grace's friends help India with her unexpressed grief and deal with their own when, suddenly, their lives start "going to shite".

BlueBuckle is a story about how horses influence our lives and how we influence theirs. It is also a romp, a yarn about characters that will be familiar to those that have a hoof in the horse-world and endearing to those that do not. It is a story of love, in its many forms.
