It was March 28, 1998; Fred and Susan had just celebrated their wedding in the Village of Lexington after Fred had served twenty nine years on the St. Clair Shores Police Department, retiring as Deputy Chief of Police. Fred longed to return to his home town far away from the  hussle and bustle of the city. Susan was eager to be a country girl and the kids were eager to explore the beaches and woods.

A new home was just completed which was nestled in the woods surrounded by wildlife. Susan immediately was absorbed into the small town culture; the kids liked their new school and classmates, spending time with “herds” instead of gangs.

Fred continued teaching law enforcement tactics around the State for a period of time until the nickering of horses replaced the sharp report of gunfire.

Being clueless about horses the family rescued  two that were headed to auction.  One horse was injured and the other was old.  Fred found a place to temporarily board them, not realizing that this would only be the beginning of horese rescues.  His love and determination would drive him to gain the knowledge and ability to provide for their care.

His horses were rescued amid the pangs of hunger, mistrust, and fear as Fred armed only with his love and determination earned their trust and love. The “non-horse trainer” was filled with pride and joy with his accomplishments, amazing his friends and garnering their respect.

“Happiness in Paradise” came to a screeching halt when Fred’s kidneys failed which was only the beginning of the medical crisis the family would face. He fought his way through three years of kidney dialysis, a quadruple heart bypass, a sub-Dural hematoma (blood clot on the brain), and finally a kidney transplant “which saved the lives of  his two of his donors,” as well as his own. Month after month, year after year, the fight was on and no one was ready to give up.

You will laugh at the antics, cry at the pain, and be amazed to see how  “the horses”  were instrumental in helping beat the odds against Fred’s survival. You will have a front row seat to witness triumph and tragedy.

This first time author has written a book that gives you a glimpse into his soul. You will not want the book to end.
