Has anyone read "Healed by Horses?"

Wow, I just finished reading the most amazing book (it contains detailed descriptions of horse auctions and selling horses, by the way). Although it is chock full of training ideas (the author is a well-known trick horse trainer), read it for the greater inspiring message. Trainer Carole Fletcher tells in Healed By Horses how her horses helped her recover form a devastating fire. She credits two, in particular, with giving her the strength to live after being told she wouldn't walk again from her burns. I don't think I ever cried so hard while reading a book, but I could not put it down and was riveted to the page. I won't spoil it for you, but just say it ends very happily. It's a must-read, even for those who don't love horses. If only because people need heroes and hope, like this lady.
