 Dartmoor, England 1638. An isolated Church, on an ancient road.

A sudden storm bursts out of the wintry sky.

Eyewitnesses mention a saddled horse with two riders near the steeple,

another tethered outside and both vanishing into the darkness.

With scorch marks burnt on their backs and rumoured to be immortal, both horses roam the moon’s desolate regions. A scorched saddle is also found later in Buckfast’s Abbey loft. For 268 years its whereabouts is a mystery until traded in a gambler’s bet some 134 years ago.

In 2000 it is given to a 12-year-old Dartmoor girl, Amanda.

With the saddle’s mysterious power and helped by the ghost of her wronged ancestor Buery Elliott, Amanda unwittingly solves a 400-year-old family mystery, resolving a terrible injustice and restoring balance to a divided community.

No one knows how long the saddle has been in this small 1100-year-old

granite-walled thatched roof house in Devon.

Its whereabouts has been a complete mystery after it was traded in a Gamblers debt. 362 years later it was given to Amanda.
