Susan, The name of this book is "The Ivy Tree" by Mary Stewart.
I can recommend that you try finding an old copy from a second hand seller.
It's a good story and you'll enjoy reading it again.
The heroine's name in this story is Mary Grey

It has been MANY years since I have read Mary Stewart. I am trying to remember the title of a particular one. The heroine is "mistaken" for someone else and convinced to impersonate herself for financial gain. The climax takes place after she is discovered riding a horse that only the real heroine could ride. Can anyone help me out here?

I am doing a project on this book for school and we are required to determine the symbolism that the book that we read displays. I have looked everywhere and could not find any imformation on this. Is there any symbolism displayed in this book?

This past week, I've been having a Mary Stewart love-fest having just re-discovered a box of her novels which I had read in my teens and twenties many years ago ( I won't mention how many). I have re-read several of them already and am hell-bent to re-read the rest of them. Nine Coaches Waiting and This Rough Magic are still my favorites. I can credit Mary Stewart's wonderful and concise descriptions of foreign lands for my great love of travel which I now bankroll by being a travel agent. I haven't made it to Greece yet but I will someday.
