Grace Nobel, at age thirteen, had known little else but frustration and hurdles to jump in her short life. Still, her passion for calling horse races never faltered. It kept her grounded.

Throughout the years of missing her father while he was fighting in the Hot Arabian desert. To the melodramatics of her mother. And Grace's devoted care of her brother, Walter, who suffered slight cerebral palsy; her spirit shone bright and her determination remained.

When maturing slowly into young womanhood, Grace found the transformation challenging. Nevertheless, the love of her childhood friend, Johnno, and his love for her, stood fast through the trials of their life. Especially after Grace's life-threatening illness, when tough decisions needed to be made by both her and Johnno.

Tom, Grace's father had survived the war, albeit with another woman, whom he later married. The experience of war had presented Tom with his portion of demons, which he eventually addressed by leaving both his families and travelling alone to out­ back Australia. He was in search of the man he knew still existed inside.

A happy ending awaits all, with the realization, that despite everything, they never gave up their dreams
