Publisher's Summary

The astonishing true story of the boy who was healed through his amazing connection with horses.

When their son Rowan was born, Rupert and Kristin's dream had come true. But the dream became a nightmare when their beautiful boy developed a disorder that left him incapable of communication, tormented by raging fits, requiring 24-hour care - and shattering their lives.

Then, one day, father and son were walking in the woods near their house and stumbled across their neighbour's old brown horse, Betsy. What happened next was unlike anything Rupert had ever seen. Certainly, the effect on Betsy was extraordinary: she went stock-still and bowed her head, wide-eyed and quivering before the child. But when Rupert lifted Rowan onto Betsy's back, the effect on his son was nothing short of miraculous: Rowan started to speak...

    "Loved it!"

    I wasn't sure about this to start with as the narrator is obviously the author rather than a professional actor. However, his story telling was insightful and when I finished the book I didn't want to start another one for ages as this one stayed with me and I kept thinking about it. I'm not sure where I stand on 'alternative' healers etc, but the journey they had and the outcomes achieved were heartwarming to say the least. I have a son similar in age and I love horses so I could relate to it to a degree, but even without that I think the story and the journey, both physical and emotional, is an amazing adventure.
