About the Book:

All eleven-year-old Pip wanted was a best friend. When Pip gets a horse for her birthday, she’s delighted. She thinks that the horse she names Buck will be her best friend from the moment that they meet. But she finds out that friendship does not come that easily.

Pip’s father gently guides her so that Pip can discover for herself how to make Buck a true friend. Pip's new friend, Buck, has a story of his own. After leaving his own herd, to move to Pip's house, he is looking for a relationship that will help him feel safe. He, too, learns that making a friend takes patience and understanding.

Told from the perspectives of both Pip and Buck, The Gift is a heartwarming and valuable lesson about friendship, trust and love, that will appeal to a wide variety of readers.

Hi Rebecca!

You're very welcome :) He's my support system (now from the Rainbow Bridge) but he gave me 16 wonderful years.

My heart feels your love for him. I am happy that you had each other for 16 years and I feel both sad and happy about him crossing the Rainbow Bridge- sad that he is gone from this earth and happy that he is still your support system. My beloved boy crossed the Rainbow Bridge after only eleven years. He was the love of my life. We still talk about things even though his body is no longer here.
