I almost did not read One Good Horse, by Tom Groneberg. I read The Secret Life of Cowboys, which I enjoyed, but I found Groneberg's writing voice to be kinda whiny. And his writing voice is still kinda whiny. But he pulled me into the story anyway, especially after the twins were born, one with Down Syndrome. A horse came into Groneberg's life at this point, and not just any horse, but the horse he needed. The same thing happened to Susan Richards in Chosen by a Horse. And I'm sure similar things happen to the rest of us - the universe supplies us with the lessons we need to learn - if we are open to the opportunities.
I just hope Groneberg realizes his wife is a saint.
