    Can anyone remember a children's book about a wild horse named La Bruja? The horse was captured and semi-tamed because it was so swift. It changed hands many times in it's life, ending up with a young child who chose to cripple it, in order that men wouldn't desire to own it any more, and it could live it's remaining years free again. I'd love to remember the title and the author, if anyone could help?

    Hi Sand1234, I hope you're still about here as you posted this a while ago.
    The book you're seeking is
    The Wild Heart - Helen Griffiths
    Good luck in tracking it down, it is still obtainable.

    Lots of books about the battle for Anzio
    I loved that book as a child and I haven't thought about it in years. I can still remember sitting in class at school (third year primary) reading it and being just totally absorbed. Thank you for reminding me, but I had no idea what it was called or who wrote it.

    You're welcome, Samg. My friend had a copy when we were aged about 13/14 (a million years ago!LOL!) It must've made a big impact on me as I've never forgotten it and I recently unearthed a tattered copy for my horse-mad grand-daughter. Am I ashamed to confess I read it before presenting her with it? NO! In fact I think I even wept more buckets at my present age than I did at 13! :)

    Thank you for raising a question about this book. I read it as a teenager and over the last few years have been trying to track it down. I remember shedding a lot of tears over it and it left a great impression on me.
