Read about the magical world of cowboys, rabbits, and Ukrainian goddesses that unfolds when Zo's gruff baba from Ukraine arrives with her savage Caucasian Ovchorka dog. The ensuing chaos of clashing cultures catapults the characters into the extreme sport of rodeo at the Calgary Stampede. There, Vince Lapin, bull-rider extraordinaire, meets up with Susie Lago, protégé of Zo, and the outcome for the other rodeo contestants as well as the animal athletes changes stampede history. Good thing Zo has a best friend with an attractive older brother to soften the trauma. SOLSTICE MAGIC is magical realism for everybody who ever wished to be more than they are.

Amusing quote:
Swiftly running winds of eternity flowing into lovely zephyr of summer blossoms.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): indomitable spirit
Loved how this story magically mixes fairy tale and reality, old world and new world, young and old, humans and non... Also includes a sprinkling of love in the air.
