This is the story of Cole - a little white horse - and Sally, the girl who loved him. The story starts with how they met, how they grew to love each other, and then how they managed to get through a rather scary adventure together. The story comes to an end - as all stories do - but Sally and Cole were both better for having met. Although this is only a story, it is inspired by a real little girl and a real little horse. That girl, who is not little anymore, is Alexa Kullberg. And the little white horse really is Cole....

** "This memoir seems written directly from Hemp’s soul, as she beautifully shares her moving story of learning to love and trust again after loss."--Booklist ** Christine Hemp's debut work of nonfiction, Wild Ride Home, is a brilliant memoir, looping themes of finding love and losing love, of going away and coming home, of the wretched course of Alzheimer's, of cancer, of lost pregnancies, of fly fishing and horsemanship, of second chances, and, ultimately, of the triumph of love and family--all told within the framework of the training of a little white horse named Buddy. Wild Ride Home invites the reader into the close Hemp family, which believes beauty and humor outshine the most devastating circumstances. Such optimism is challenged when the author suffers a series of blows: a dangerous fiancé, her mother’s dementia, unexpected death and illness. Buddy, a feisty, unforgettable little Arabian horse with his own history to overcome, offers her a chance to look back on her own life and learn to trust again, not only others, but more importantly, herself. Hemp skillfully guides us through a memoir that is, despite devastating loss, above all, an ode to joy.

“This is a much-needed study of a remarkable life. Elizabeth Goudge was not only a sensitive and acute artist in fiction, but a profoundly insightful commentator on the processes of growing up spiritually and morally. She fully deserves the kind of sympathetic and appreciative exploration provided by this book.” Rowan Williams, 104th Archbishop of Canterbury Elizabeth Goudge once said she had “done no exciting things” - none of the “wonderful things that some people do”. Yet her achievement was wonderful. From the stuff of her own life – even the hard things like depression and nervous breakdown, even the Christian faith that upheld her throughout – she created best-selling books that were read, worldwide, throughout the forty years of her career and are still being read today. J.K. Rowling has said that her favourite childhood book was The Little White Horse - recently filmed as The Secret of Moonacre. Beyond the Snow is an appreciation of Miss Goudge’s life and work that attempts to look beyond her memoires, by linking them to her books and letters and the recollections of family and friends. It examines in particular her Christian faith and its illuminating influence on everything she did, and was. As Alan Walton said, reviewing The Joy of the Snow – “there is nobody like her.”
