The Memory HorseBook - 1999
The village is holding a special auction to save the local carousel. People are bidding on the old horses and taking responsibility for refurbishing them. Sarah knows money's scarce, but her grandfather bids on Starflyer, the horse that his late wife enjoyed riding in the summers of their youth. As grandfather and granddaughter paint the horse, they use symbols of the woman they loved: ribbons that she won at the fall fair, stamps for the letters she wrote to soldiers during the war, and most importantly, a heart around her name. Although the next generations to ride Starflyer will never know her, painting the horse is a perfect way to celebrate and to remember her.
