Jana Harris recounts her 24-year bond with a feral mare rescued from a fire in Horses Never Lie About Love.
When True Colors arrived at the Washington State ranch owned by Jana Harris and her husband, the broodmare was heavily scarred around her head and ears. She was also terrified of people, especially men, while something as benign as a fence post could trigger her huge will to escape. Yet True Colors held a near magical influence over the other horses on the ranch. And once she had a foal, the troubled horse settled with ease into the role of mother. Today True Colors is a comforting presence without which the other horses cannot sleep, and a testament to just how thin the line is between animals and the humans they love.

I loved this book...of course I grew up with horses and they are one of my passions. I learned a lot from this book and reflected a lot from my childhood. I admired her easy style of writing. The book was smooth, easily understood and interesting from start to finish..
Trials and tribulations. I had a horse ranch for 26 years and never exerienced such woes. I sat on an upturned bucket in the field with the newbies and let their curiousity hook themselves. Lucky, I guess.
It is my most favorite book of all times. I hated for it to end. Wonderful, moving story. The author is gifted.

Everything I ever wanted to know about horses skillfully and attractively woven into a gripping narrative about an exceptional horse/human relationship. I have never owned a horse, and only ridden maybe ten times in my life, yet this story had me from page one.

I love a good animal story and this one had me following along in the life of True Colors...what a magnificent heart this horse has...my now deceased rottweiler was an animal of this magnitude...155 pounds of the gentlest soul I have ever met, human or animal...
