As a passionate musician and singer-songwriter, Lisa Peterson is devastated when her beloved guitar breaks.

She follows the sound to an old woman’s room, and it’s there she meets Beatrice. Lisa returns to the old woman’s room night after night, and as time goes by, she learns more about the old woman’s past. It turns out Beatrice’s story – much like Lisa’s – is full of horses, friendship, and exciting adventures. But who is this mysterious old woman, really?

But then her brother James disappears, and as Alex begins to feel a strange power calling to her, she realizes that she must hurry and save her brother before it’s too late.
