Tillie, the young daughter of a sugarcane field foreman, lives in an imaginary world that is filled with beautiful horses, polite people, and luxurious homes. Her real world, however, includes living in a cane foreman’s small tenant house with her over-worked mother, an autistic sister, and a rebellious older brother who is searching for answers within a radical Muslim group. When Tillie is unexpectedly forced to assist in the difficult birth of a new foal, she proves that her determination and belief in herself will allow her to accomplish anything she sets out to do.


The spectators in the stands applauded politely as the beautiful Arabian horse named Arabesque was coaxed onto the stadium field by its young rider, Tillie Turpning.

"That girl won't even make it over the first jump," a man whispered to his wife.

"Why do you say that?" The woman studied the small figure sitting astride the large black animal.

"She's never ridden in competition before," he answered. "And look at her. She's so small. There's no way she can handle a horse the size of Arabesque, and especially one as temperamental." The woman nodded.

A gentle breeze stirred, scattering red and white petals from the potted geraniums that were decorating the field. The crowd noises softened. Arabesque picked up her gate into a slow gallop around the outer edge of the jumping field in response to Tillie's silent command, settling into her own pace, her natural rhythm.
