I'm glad I persevered, because this is one of the most delightful, inventive novels I have read this year. Set in times past, the Irish people suffer under the oppression of English overlords. Into the little town of Carraroe, steps a magnificent white stallion. You may be confused unless you know that unless a horse is an albino, white horses are called grey. It is the shape-shifting Ruairi come to seek a wife.
The story that follows is full pure magic. Fortunately, MacAvoy has written several books, and I intend to read them all.
R. A. MacAvoy
Narrator: Steve Coulter
This Story of the Grey Horse is a charming bit of Irish mythology, a touch of romance and a twist of mystery. The pastoral descriptions bring the beauty of the country side of Carraroe to life. Characters Rauiri MacEibhir our hero and the woman he has waited for and loves Mary with the dark hair gives the reader a charming and engaging romance. The horse family that takes Rauiri in an older couple, Anrai O Reachraire an his wife Aine are wonderfully developed supporting characters. Readers are quickly immersed in the life of an 1800’s village and all its inhabitants, gossip, and of course the horses. MacAvoy has a lovely touch bringing the life and magic alive. Definitely a book you can scarcely put down and can enjoy time and again. Steve Coulter’s voice brings the written word to life with wonderful depth.
I love the author's way describing things - people - situations - places. It is not wordy but pulls you in - in short strokes to read every word - where I would usually skim past it. Like a poet or song-writer can build a whole story in four lines. I will read this author again.
Lots of real horse information for horse lovers who get sick and tired of reading books by people who don't know horses.
When a pooka falls in love with a human woman, he decides to enlist the local horse trainer to win his love. However, convincing her that his intentions are true results in misunderstandings and a death.
The ending is sweetly satisfying.

Another of her Celtic-inspired stories, "The Grey Horse" probably comes nearest to the description 'fey', and therefore will not be everyone's 'cup of tea'; however, my recommendation is to just sit back and enjoy the gentle charm of MacAvoy's narrative.
Again, a heroine who does not fit into the 'blonde is beautiful' stereotype proves thatlove in fantasy novels need not be restricted to girls in too-tight clothing and perfect coiffure. If, as in this case, a girl is described as strong, broad-shouldered, and built like a work-horse? Well, what more could any kelpie want!
