Description

Where White Horses Gallop is a haunting tale of three boys who leave their home of Beinn Barra to enlist in the legendary Cape Breton Highlanders in the Second World War: fisherman Hector MacDonald, gifted musician Benny Doucet, and Calum MacPherson, who has been accepted at Dalhousie to study medicine. The three friends sail off to war in November, 1941, while at home their families suffer through the pain and uncertainty of their absence. Heartwrenching, lyrical and profound, the novel traces the effects of war on those who fight, and on those who stay behind.
Praise for Where White Horses Gallop:
“Beatrice MacNeil has a brilliant insight into the souls of the wounded. This is a splendid novel.”?Alistair MacLeod
“Beatrice MacNeil has written a wonderful book, heart-wrenching in its story and lyrically beautiful in its telling. “MacNeil’s language is pure poetry. Her vivid and original descriptions, her poetic metaphors and similes, and the graceful cadences of her sentences all remind us of the great pleasure to be had in the reading of finely crafted prose. When coupled with her expressive understanding of emotions, and her deep insights into character, the result is a profound and powerful novel.” “The Globe and Mail
