This book is a true story about the authors life after being accidentally shot by a family member.
I don’t usually do book reviews on this blog, but this read is definitely worth a mention.
Don’t be misled by the innocent title. This memoir is the inspiring story of a young girl who at nine years old was robbed of the youth most of us take for granted.
A children’s afternoon outing ends in a hospital miles from family and their farm with her spinal cord severed. She will never walk again. She may never see her thirties.
Her determination and bravery will inspire you as you follow her journey and dreams of owning dogs, horses, riding, and living on a farm again.
Partly from necessity, she discovers she has more than love for animals, she has a talent for training dogs to aid and enhance her way of life.
You’ll read about her special companions who also served a purpose and how they helped add meaning to her life.
As tragic as this story is, this memoir doesn’t dwell on the negatives. It’s an enlightening and uplifting read. Although, I needed a tissue a time or two.
I can personally vouch for the great person this author became having known her now for forty some years.
The book “Dogs, Horses and Me” is available on Amazon in print and ebook versions.
