Fan Mail for Sham's Dream and Mary Walsh:
I just finished reading your book. It's a wonderfully uplifting story! I would have read your book a hundred times as a child, wearing out the pages. I have a tender spot for Thoroughbreds, and Sham would have been my hero. I loved your illustrations. You are a true talent.
