Moonstone Promise (Diamond Spirit 2)

Karen Wood
NZD $19.99

The second book in the adventurous Diamond Spirit trilogy. Jess's friend Luke goes bush with the brumbies to find out who he is and where he belongs.

Jess untied something from around her neck and held it out to Luke. 'Take my moonstone. They're supposed to give you beautiful dreams.'

It was a pale oval-shaped stone, hung on a thin leather strap.

'Promise me you'll come back,' she whispered.

'I'll see you again, Jess,' Luke said. 'Promise.'


After a harsh childhood spent in foster care, Luke finally feels at home on Harry's farm, working with horses. When Harry dies and Luke has a bitter falling-out with the people around him, he does a runner, leaving everything behind. He takes off to the gulf country in search of brumbies and finds himself camped by a river with three Aboriginal elders.

Can a mob of wild brumbies and three wise men help Luke discover who he is and where he belongs?
