Rosalyn W. Berne is the author of When The Horses Whisper and also my guest on today's "A Book and a Chat".
osalyn Berne has always known that she was different from most people. Even as a child she was aware of things that others could not see or hear, experiencing the life force around her. But her special ability with horses was something that she would not fully recognize until she was an adult. Returning to Costa Rica?a once-visited sanctuary-she sought solace from the world and hoped to begin healing from a painful divorce and the subsequent breakdown of her family. Drawn to the horses that are part of the working farm-resort that was her retreat, she suddenly and unexpectedly received a gift?the ability to communicate with them. And what they said changed her life
hen the Horses Whisper shows the true power of horses. Once they realized that Rosalyn was able to 'hear' them they opened up completely, showing her a world of strength, beauty and, most importantly, love. She begins to realize how strong the bond is between horse and human and how anyone can communicate with them on a deeper level. She also learns how they can help humans to heal from loss and pain as she begins to recover from her own grief, including the loss of a child, a traumatic childhood encounter, and the end of her marriage.
