The Legend of Fire Horse Woman
By Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston; Kensington Books, 2003
Sayo was born in Hiroshima, Japan, in 1902, the ruinous Fire Horse year. Fire Horse women were destined to remain untamed by men-- and were to be avoided as wives at all costs; married by proxy, she is sent to join her new husband in America where she learns to harness the power of the Fire Horse and survive many obstacles.
