Summary:
"Dan, a shepherd's son in the north of Israel near Lake Moram, is thinking vaguely of the time he will have to serve in Solomon's military forces but he is more concerned with the foal, Bala, which he finds abandoned and near death in the countryside. As he takes care of the foal, a young mare, his heart goes out to her but there are other matters to contend with too. Cruel merchants who claim to be Bala's owners appear and she is mistreated by them and lost to Dan for a time. Only after Dan has enlisted as an armor bearer to Ethan, a charioteer, is he reunited with Bala in circumstances that reveal her owners as instigators of an inside plot to betray Solomon's forces to the Egyptians."--Kirkus.
