Blind Ambition

by Grace Harwood
£5.99   paperback  Castaway Press (2011)

Blind Ambition by Grace Harwood Meet Emily Devlin - the world's only nearly blind, unemployed show jumper. Things haven't been going so well for her since losing her mum, her horse, her job, her sight, and well, everything really.
But that was before she met The Blank, the albino horse for whom the next stop is the Whiskas factory, and "Mad Jimmy" Bridges, drummer and punk rock legend. Now, between them, it seems that all might not be lost after all. For suddenly, Emily is living the dream she has cherished since childhood (think National Velvet, only with sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll), making show jumping history in the British Open, and falling in love along the way.
The book for anyone who ever dreamed of show jumping glory - or making it big in a rock band - this really is the story of how to take nothing at all and make something out of it.
