Ar fheirm mhuintir La Tour i Nova Scotia tá Gealach, ceann de na capaill ráis is fearr i gCeanada. Agus í á tabhairt i mbád trasna an chuain titeann Gealach san fharraige. Sa cheo trom imíonn an capall as radharc. Cuirtear saol na feirme bunoscionn. Ní chreidfidh an cúpla, Jack agus Liz, go bhfuil Gealach báite, agus téann siad ar a tóir. Ach tá an t-am ag sleamhnú: tá fiacha móra ar an bhfeirm agus, gan Gealach, caillfidh siad an teach agus gach rud atá acu.?Ní hamháin sin, ach tá searrach á iompar ag Gealach agus má tá sí fós beo, caithfidh siad teacht uirthi go tapa!

Tá Duais Oireachtais buaite ag an úrsceal seo.

It is always a literary occasion when the name of Seán Mac Mathúna, one of the Irish language's most gifted writers, appears on a book. Mac Mathúna's stories and novels demand to be read. His latest novel, Gealach, is one of his shorter books, which could be accurately classed as an adventure story. Mac Mathúna sets the action in Nova Scotia rather than Ireland, and the main character is a racehorse called Gealach, or Moon. An accident on a ferry sees Gealach cast into the water, much to the consternation of her owners, who are in debt and need both her and the foal she is carrying to save the financial day. It is left to the twins, Jack and Liz, to save the family farm from the bank and Gealach from being turned into horsemeat, in a story that sits comfortably somewhere between Ros na Rún and Black Beauty. —Póíl Ó Muirí, The Irish Times, 01.12.12
