When she agrees to take on one of the abused horses just rescued by the local SPCA, a new chapter opens in Susan Richardss difficult life. She lost her mother at the age of five and was raised by uncaring relatives; she married unhappily and divorced; and shed been an alcoholic. Now, at the age of forty-three, she lives with three horses who keep her company: the diva-like Georgia, boyish Tempo and hopelessly romantic Hotshot. While trying to capture another horse assigned to her, Lay Me Down, a skeletal mare, walks into Susans horse trailer of her own volition. When Susan agrees to take her, she begins to forge a special, healing relationship that alters her life. Poignant and evocative, this is a book for anyone who has ever loved a horse, and for everyone who has ever lost a loved one.
