White Whale

Do any of you have a "white whale" of a book (or movie?)

As in, something that you can't quite figure out.... or get to...

Like, there was this book I read when I was young.  I really enjoyed it (as far as I can remember) and would love to read it again.

(Actually, as I type this I feel like I may have written about this here before but I shall proceed!)

The problem is that I don't remember enough about the book to find it again to re-read.  All I remember (and this is from when I was like 10 or something so the memory may not even be all that accurate!) is that the protagonist (girl) had to (?) to go a farm/ranch (?) and there were horses.  And, you know, HORSES!  (I loved horse books, as many do.)

I seem to remember there being forests involved or dark trees or something but my mind tells me something about flying over a farm house and the horse pen area and something something uncle maybe?  I dunno, I just wish I had any sort of solid information to go on to find this book (that maybe isn't all that great but in my mind it was!)

So... do you have something like that that you don't have enough info to quite figure out?

It looks like someone on Goodreads was looking for a similar book (https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/263019-solved-girl-s-at-horse-camp-or-ranch---burr-put-under-saddle-s) so maybe that'll help. :)

I think my White Whale books is "Crime & Punishment" ... I've started it 5 times now, and each time I have to put it down at the same point because I just get too depressed. I keep trying to read it though, because it is such a well written book and it feels important.
