The Secret Ceili
by Rod Vick (author)
Irish dancer Kaylee O'Shay is invited to compete on a ceili dance team at the Midwest championships, and to earn money for the trip, she takes a job caring for the horses at a farm near her home. She quickly falls in love with her job and the horses, especially Trooper, with whom she forms a special bond.
However, as her work on the farm takes more and more of her time, her dance teammates feel she is letting them down. As a result, Kaylee finds herself in an impossible situation: she loves dance and she loves the horses, but she only has time for one.
