Summary (From the publisher):

When orphaned Maria Merryweather arrives at Moonacre Manor she has no idea how she will be received by her new guardian, her uncle Sir Benjamin Merryweather. Maria soon discovers that things are very different here from her early life in London, and that every person and every animal she encounters adds a little to the mystery of the unhappiness of Moonacre Manor. Soon it is apparent that many wrongs must be righted, and many misunderstandings resolved, before Maria will again see the symbol of perfect happiness - the little white horse.

Blurbs:
  • "Fantasy and reality meet on equal terms in an exciting mystery story in which all of the characters, both human and animals, come alive, and stay alive from start to finish...." The Horn Book
  • "For imaginative readers...this tale will have a strong appeal. There are richness of detail and a lively use of color and light - sunshine, moonlight, and shadow, symbolically contrasted - to catch the fancy, and a spiritual quality in this parable of greed and pride vanquished by innocence and goodwill." The New York Times
  • "The theme of this story is as old as the fairy tales, and it is written with a haunting beauty of wording and atmosphere....It is a book to cherich, to read again and again and again." Saturday Review of Literature
