Tricia Evanston has loved horses as long as she can remember just like her father. He has always encouraged her love of horse racing and has been training her to compete professionally. Things are not as smooth with Tricia's mother who worries about her schoolwork and the chances of her getting hurt. Their relationship is easily strained.
Tricia has turned sixteen and her whole life is about to be turned upside down. Her father has been coughing for a long time and finally goes to the hospital. The family is devastated when they learn the diagnosis. Tricia and her older brother David try to take care of the ranch, but when some of the horses get sick, Tricia's schoolwork really suffers.
And then there's the question of her faith. How can she trust in God when He's seemingly forgotten her father?
Before her looms the big race. If only she can win.
