It sounds very fascinating--yet another YA or older
children's book that now I want to read. Authors of
those kinds of books tend to write very well--better
than some authors of adult books I've read. 

I recently finished Flambards Divided, and as I was
returning the book to the library I read about another
book by K.M. Peyton, Dear Fred. The publisher's
summary is below, although it is a little different
from the summary I read on the flap. It's for grades
seven and up. Fred Archer was a real person.


Newmarket in the 1880s: Laura's heart turned over with
adoration whenever she caught a glimpse of Fred Archer
- dear Fred - the tall, slender young jockey who won
the Derby five times and became an idol over a century
ago. To Laura's parents, her passionate hero-worship
was an embarrassment. The only people who understood
her feelings were Uncle Harry and his strange protege,
Tiger, a runaway boy with a lithe body and fiery
nature who kissed Laura secretly behind the stable door.
