Set on a remote Scottish croft after a strange ecological disaster, The Horses is the story of Jo and his family. Stranded while on holiday, they are facing personal as well as global tragedy when the arrival of a mysterious herd of horses heralds the chance for a future they could never have imagined.

This powerful first person narrative uses magical realism to stunning effect to tell a highly compelling story. A highly accomplished debut novel.

Elaine Walker has lived in North Wales all her life and has been a freelance writer since 1997. Her work includes fiction, poetry and non-fiction. Much of her non-fiction is concerned with equestrian history and culture, in particular her book, Horse (Reaktion Books, 2008). As a fiction writer, she is particularly interested in magical realism and storytelling which is not bounded by reality. She has published academic work on early modern horsemanship. Elaine lectures for the Open University, the University of Wales and the Open College of the Arts. She runs online writing courses and is an Academi Mentor.
