Story Summary

When Livinia's beloved buggy horse Speedwell dies, James brings home a new horse, Lady Washington, that looks suspiciously like a race horse. From their first meeting it is clear that there is no love lost between Livinia and Lady Washington and that their relationship will be a test of wills with Lady Washington winning more often than not.
