Publisher's Summary

When Susan Richards adopted an abused horse rescued by the local SPCA, she didn't know that the memoir she would write about the experience would become a best seller.

The book led to a book tour, in the course of which, Susan reconnected with family and friends whom she had cut herself off from. She had given up on romance, but at the second reading of her tour she encountered the man who had sold her his house 24 years earlier, Dennis Stock, a world-famous photographer. Despite her many qualms about age and intimacy, they fell in love.

Ugh!!!

Proving the adage that a best seller is almost never followed up with another book as good as the first, Chosen Forever departs from the winning formula of Chosen by a Horse to focus on the neuroses, insecurities, and familial dysfunction of the author. I was hoping for a continuation of her story telling skills about animals. Instead, I got an almost day by day biography of her life after writing Chosen by a Horse, some of it so intimate that I felt like a voyeur.

The corner I kept hoping she'd turn never came.

listener beware

listening to this book in public is bound to cause, at very least, sideways glances. People may even ask if you are ok. You will find yourself laughing out loud, gasping and possibly wiping away a tear. just recommend the book and keep listening. it is worth it.

I enjoyed this book.

If you could sum up Chosen Forever in three words, what would they be?

I enjoyed this book , but not as much as the first one " Chosen by a Horse. " I did like the narrator, she has an easy voice to listen too.

What about Lorna Raver’s performance did you like?

Liked her voice.

Happy endings do happen

Susan, if you read this I am so happy that you finally let yourself be loved. Childhood trauma in whatever form it takes is so damaging and I'm so very happy to learn that you have let yourself be loved.
