Emmie resents her mother's cavalier attitude and interference. A rivalry that somewhat existed before Nealy's arrival with Emmie trying to outdo her mother's success explodes into full war between the two relatives. Ultimately, the business cannot go on like this and a final confrontation between mother and daughter over who runs Blue Diamond is imminent with their personal relationship on the line as well.

The final tale of Fern Michaels' Kentucky trilogy is an exciting relationship drama that focuses on the poignancy of two women who love one another yet perhaps love the farm more. This leads to an unhealthy competition for top dog (horse?) in what may prove to be a destructive relationship if they are not more sensitive to the other's feelings. The story line is typical of Ms. Michaels' extended Texas-Vegas-Kentucky orb and many of the same characters appear in this novel adding to the enjoyment of fans, but also takes a trots down a surprising track.
