A Book To Teach Me The Lessons I Kept Ignoring!
31 May 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
4 people found this helpful.
A friend recommended this book to me when I broke my leg in a horse related accident. While mine was not nearly as horrific as Ms. Dunn's, it gave me so many 'ah ha!' moments, it made me feel like less of an idiot. I again should have listened to my intuition, because I knew my horse was 'off', and yet I saddled him up anyway. The second half of this book was a soothing, peaceful, suggestion of how to get back on Phoenix (my gelding), but at a slow pace, not going at it like I'm killin' snakes, as my mother used to say. I need to listen to my horse, and my intuition, more often. In five years, I've had four concussions, a separated shoulder, 9 fractured ribs, a broken hand, a broken foot, and now a broken leg, all because I didn't pay attention to my horse. Once I am on both feet again, I'll have Ms. Dunn's book on my nightstand, to re-read and remind me that I need to 'just keep swimming, just keep swimming'....
Compelling and Touching Book About Injury and Healing
3 December 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book for my Kindle and read it immediately, though I have a lot of books waiting for me! Dunn had an injury similar to one I had. Mine was from a bicycle accident, but I very much enjoyed the parts about her horse. Her love for the horse and riding were evident and added dimension to the story. I related to Dunn's pain and misery and later fears. I kept a journal of my healing. Dunn wrote a book that was compelling and touching and left me hoping she will continue to thrive and write.

Healing After an Accident

This is a very inspiring story of an accident-prone woman who not only faced her inner demons but whose accident (falling off a horse) initiated a new spiritual phase of her life. Through yoga, meditation, and profound self-exploration, she achieved not only physical healing but also emotional and spiritual healing.

Samantha Dunn tells her story of recovering from a near-death horse accident beautifully. What struck me most about this book was Dunn's ability to so clearly describe her feelings on every occasion. Her story telling makes her incredibly easy to connect with. I especially appreciated Dunn's descriptions of her mother and grandmother and the way she weaves in references to their influence on her life. Beautifully written.
