Publisher's Summary

It is 1842 and Maria Merryweather, a 13-year-old orphan is on her journey to the mysterious Moonacre Manor. There she finds herself in a crumbling house of secrets and mystery in a world caught up in time. Maria discovers that she is the last Moon Princess and she has only until the next full moon to undo the misdeeds of her ancestors and save the Moonacre estate from disappearing forever. Although she is aided by a stable of wonderful characters and magical beasts, it is only by self-sacrifice and perseverance that she will be able to succeed. And of course, with a good pinch of magic, Maria is able to save Moonacre, right the wrongs, reunite lost loves and finally bring peace to the valley.

Pity it's too short!

I listen to a lot of audiobooks and Juliet Stevenson is one of my favourite readers. 'The Little White Horse' is one of my favourite children's books - so what a wonderful match! Sadly the abridgement is not brilliant, and I just wish there was a recording of JS reading the entire book....
