As soon as Tamzin and Rissa learn that the white ship carries a cargo of horses which are being taken abroad to be slaughtered and sold as meat, they becomedetermined to rescue them from this dreadful fate. This proved to be the most difficult thing they have ever done, and they find themselves involved in an adventure even more exciting than their previous ones. But once again they have the staunch help of friends. Meryon and Roger, of course, are with them heart and soul, so are the kindly Merrow family, and Old Jim and the fishermen play their part in formidable raiding parties on both sea and on land. And there is Jonah, the tough unloved boy whom they rescue and who proves so great an ally. Yet there are times when the difficulties of their undertaking seem almost too great and the highest courage and resourcefulness is demanded from each one of them.The setting of the story is Romney Marsh, which Monica Edwards describes so vividly that you can clearly see the wide spaces, the stormy skies and the boats tossing on the sea. And you can feel, as if you had been there, the warm friendliness of the Merrow's farm, the exciting atmosphere of Jim's hut, and the serenity of Tamzin's own home.
