In Early America, a beautiful young woman determined to enter a steeplechase and a handsome horse breeder may have a British enemy -- or two. Fall 1810 in Virginia was a wonderful time for a long carriage ride, or perhaps a race on horseback. The Commonwealth was still young, but thriving. Unfortunately there still were those who sympathized with the British. Martha Osborne's stepmother has again traveled to England, her very young son in an academy. Equestrian Phillip Paulson is sympathetic to Martha's desire to have her half-brother returned home. As Martha and Phillip's relationship blossoms, danger looms. Will the steeplechase end it all?

I enjoyed this Audio book written by Carrie Fancett Pagels. Her vivid descriptions of places and events can stir the imagination and make you feel as though you too were witnessing and living in the events of the books. Her choice of narrators was excellent. Vicki Henderson did a great interpretation of the characters making it very enjoyable to listen to. The 1810 time period shows a still somewhat fledgling young country and the events and feelings that still existed from a time recently passed when feelings of old wounds perhaps were not completely healed. How will this affect Martha Osbourne and a family whose father remarries an English woman who spends much of her time in England? The Steeplechase has many twists and you will enjoy this book very much. The author is a very talented writer of historical fiction, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite genres. Disclosure: I received an Audio version of this book from the author for my honest review.
