Publisher's Summary

The horse Susan Richards chose for rescue wouldn't be corralled into her waiting trailer. Instead, Lay Me Down, a former racehorse with a foal close on her heels, walked right up that ramp and into Susan's life. This gentle creature, malnourished, plagued by pneumonia and an eye infection, had endured a rough road, but somehow her heart was still open and generous. It seemed fated that she would come into Susan's paddock and teach her how to embrace the joys of life despite the dangers of living.

Loved, loved, LOVED this book

As a lover of horses, this book called to me. I recommended it to all my horse-loving and non-horse-loving (don't understand those people at all!) friends. The narrator was spectacular. I thought it must surely be the author reading her own story, though I found out later it was not. The feeling with which it was read was so very genuine. I related to this story in so many ways, I felt as if I were experiencing this book, and by the time there was only half an hour left, I was sobbing so hard, I had to stop listening. My husband was even fighting back tears. By the next morning, we felt we had the strength to finish the story....we finished it. I cried some more. And immediately recommended it to everyone that I know. A wonderful story beautifully told.
