The Secret Horses of Briar Hill by Megan Shepherd

The Secret Horses of Briar Hill
Set in a convalescent hospital for children with Tuberculosis during World War II, this story is both historical fiction and magical realism.  Emmaline, one of the girls who lives in the mansion-turned-hospital sees flying horses in the mirrors of the house and one day, she sees a flying horse outside as well.  She finds a letter asking her to help to protect the flying horse with an injured wing who she finds in a garden.  She needs to find objects with all the colors of the rainbow to hide the horse from another flying horse who is after her.  The story is very sad.  I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
