Catherine, this book will undoubtedly make you cry but in that good way that also makes you happy that the horses found my Aunt. And she's just a good writer, you will enjoy it.
I'm the same way about animal abuse/neglect. I cannot watch that Animal Cop show on animal planet and I have a really hard time reading/hearing about stories on the news or other rescue websites about neglected animals. But this book I can do, even though it makes me cry EVERY time. Maybe it's because I know the horses personally so I know they are all OK and happy.
Little exerpt from the Introduction:
In many ways, these stories really come from the hearts and souls of the horses themselves. I am merely their voice. For if the truth be told, I have only walked along a chosen path-a path that has led me to provide some otherwise unwanted horses the peace and dignity they deserve. I did not go searching for the horses I have encountered along my journey and brought into our family (even though you might point out that I did indeed find most of them, and you would be right in saying so). Yet I truly believe that through some implicit power of the richness all around us, the reality is that they have all found me.
