Overview

In the heartwarming sequel to Chosen by a Horse, Susan Richards tells of the continuing gifts brought to her life by her beloved horse, Lay Me Down.

Readers cried with Susan Richards when, at the end of Chosen by a Horse, her beloved mare was laid to rest in the paddock where she had met her herd—Hot Shot, Tempo, and Georgia. Now they will cheer as Susan recounts the further wonders that came into her life as part of Lay Me Down's legacy: a bestselling book, a tour to support that book, the reconnection to friends and family who come to celebrate her success, and love—unexpected, complicated, and true.

And so Chosen Forever works its magic as a sequel of self-discovery, as Susan continues to grow into her new life. Told in charming prose with her familiar and disarming sense of humor, and featuring a new supporting cast of animal characters (a Siamese cat, two pugs, tow Labs, and appearances by horses), this is another moving tale for readers facing their own challenges at recreating their lives. Chosen Forever is the story of what happens the day after all of your dreams come true—how you learn to accept that you deserve to be happy, and how those we love continue to offer us gifts long after they are gone.

When I picked up Susan Richards first book, Chosen By A Horse, I was very touched from the very beginning it literally was one of those books I could not put down. The next installment from Susan is equally well written and reminds you of the first book and her beautiful journey with a horse that just happened to her and touched all of us named Lay Me Down. By the end of that first book you realize that even when you are down on your luck something wonderful can bring you back to life. Susan has a down to earth touch in telling her stories that literally warms your heart. After being alone for many years and having some wonderful friends she finally finds someone she can share her heart with. It unfolds slowly but you always get the feeling that the spirit is there from the beginning. I can highly recommend this book if you just need something to pick you up or to have a good cry about if that is what you need. One thing I hope is that she will continue to do what she does so well WRITE. I will look for more books in the future and purchase them with the full knowledge that I will love them all. Please do yourself a favor, these 2 books will revamp your spirit.

I read Chosen By a Horse and right away picked up Chosen Forever then ran right out and bought Saddled and am now reading that!!! I never read three books in a row by the same author. Only one other time have I done that and that was Lorna Barrett's mysteries. These books are wonderful, thoughtful, and very emotional. You end up caring about all the characters in the book and can't wait to find out more. I sure hope she writes more!!!

Another heartwarming memiour. Susan Richards has a way of bringing forth feelings that otherwise remain unaknowledged in all of us. She is so open in her writing about her feelings that is makes it posible to acknowledge our own feelings and fears. The pets in our lives really truely help shape who we are and what we can become. The unconditional love they give us allow us to begin to trust and feel as they hold no judgement. They truely can be the first step in realizing it is ok to love and be loved. I look forward to reading any thing else witten by Ms Richards as her determination and perserverence on the road to being published is inspirational and leaves me wanting more.

Sequel to Chosen by a Horse telling the success story of the author's publication of the first book. Includes anecdotes from her childhood as a foster child in her own extended family, from her book signing tour, and from her romance with photographer (now husband) Dennis Stock. Encouraging to writers who have received rejection letters.

I loved the previous book, Chosen by a Horse. I'm glad I read this book to finish the story. The only reason the first book got 5 stars and this one got 4, is that this book doesn't have nearly as much to do with horses as the first. I could still relate to Susan. However, I am not yet to the stage in my life, that Susan is in this book. Still and all, a really good read.

Did not hold up to my expectations after her first book. It was okay.

I was taken in from the very beginning of this memoir. It is, in turn, deeply saddening,growing up in such an isolate family, to warm, meeting a man who not only shares her love of books and animals, but the author herself. I was moved at her compassion and being so open to learning from, yes, a horse. How well I know the healing properties of these gentle giants. A love story on so many levels.
