Based on a true story, Farriers' Lane tells the story of the Darling family as they navigate the challenges of life in the early 1900s in a small town in upstate New York. The Darling family is made up of father, mother, and five children - three boys and two girls. The youngest, Rose, is just entering grade school and is eager to start learning about the world. Her interests are sparked by the town's only library, which her father helps to open up. She takes particular interest in the books about horses, and dreams of one day owning her own horse. The Darling family's life takes a turn when father is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. With no insurance and no money, the family is faced with the difficult choice of whether to pay for father's medical treatments or let him die. Although the family is united in their love and support for one another, the challenges of life are many. The Darling family must find ways to help each other; 8vo; Signed by Author.
