Book Three of the multi-award-winning series The Barn Chronicles by N.Z author Rosie Boom.Going on the pony trek to the beach is a dream come true for twelve-year-old Milly trekking over high hills, swimming Peony in the sea, galloping along the beach. But when tragedy strikes, the excitement turns to tears. Adventures, dramas, laughter and some tears are all part of the rich tapestry of the Boom family's third year of living in their ninety-year-old barn. Milly's days are full to the brim as she cares for her animals, milks her cow, enjoys adventures with her brothers and sisters, and helps Mum and Dad build the new family home. She is as happy as a cricket. But that doesn't stop her lying awake at night, dreaming of hitching Peony to a wagon, climbing into the high wagon seat and picking up the reins.
