Synopsis: Shawn Jayroe’s passion for horses and desire to help the underdog was instilled during her charmed childhood. Later, when the shy yet determined self-made businesswoman witnessed mistreatment of the beautiful majestic equines, a deep need to protect those without a voice begged her to action. Shawn rallied troops from the community to bring her vision to life, and with dedicated volunteers and financial donations, a miraculous life-saving refuge was gradually pieced together, forming RVR Horse Rescue. But one result Shawn hadn’t anticipated was the magical effect the horrifically abused animals would imprint on their caregivers, blurring the lines of who was saving whom. Author Shirley Alarie delivers the riveting saga of Shawn Jayroe and her army of Horse Angels who are tackling the unspoken issue of equine neglect and abuse one desperate animal at a time. A Healing Haven is an inspiring true story and a beautiful reminder that it is in giving that we receive life’s greatest blessings.

From the Author: This project was a profoundly emotional experience for me. When I began to explore possibilities for my next book, I was drawn to an "animal" theme. I pursued an opportunity to write about a small therapeutic horse ranch and was disappointed when the project fell through. However, a couple of months later, my husband was reading about my recently published breast cancer guide, The Road Paved in Pink, in a local newspaper insert. When he turned the page, he discovered another article featuring a heartwarming story about a horse rescue ranch.
"Where's that?" I asked him. Neither of us had a clue. In the year since we'd moved into the neighborhood, we'd never heard of RVR Horse Rescue, but it was within five miles of our home. The following week, this urban-girl showed up on the ranch to muck stalls and fill water buckets, all in the presence of majestic and beautiful thousand pound creatures - completely foreign and frightening to me. But it was the type of opportunity I had dreamt of since my childhood.

RVR Horse Rescue is a non-profit organization run by an army of volunteers. Their mission is to intervene, rescue, rehabilitate, and provide sanctuary for neglected, abused, abandoned, and traumatized horses. I quickly realized was a legitimate and amazing haven of healing and approached Shawn Jayroe, the founder and owner, about her interest in writing her story. To my delight, she accepted immediately. Like so many others, Shawn had always intended to write her story, but hectic daily demands kept taking precedence.I can say with complete honesty that this project changed my life. I knew as soon as I walked through the gates of the ranch that it was a special place. The hectic world of lofty materialistic goals, financial responsibilities, unrealistic deadlines, social media drama, and stories of violence invading our nation's schools and neighborhoods dropped away as if I'd teleported to another planet. The serene and quiet beauty drew me into its enchanting spell.

This was the type of place and opportunity I had dreamed of during my harried days of life in the corporate manufacturing world, making plastic panels for various applications, such as windows. Big company politics, deadlines, back-stabbing, and turf guarding had sucked the life out of me, and I believe contributed in some way to my breast cancer diagnosis. Even though we joked that "It's only plastic", it was a dog-eat-dog world on a treadmill that kept gaining speed. I could never see a life beyond plastic. That is, until I walked through the gates of RVR. It suddenly brought the meaning and purpose I had been missing.

Beyond the peaceful environment itself and the beautiful animals, I fell in love with the people. RVR Horse Angels, a fitting description of the volunteers who work tirelessly to save the abused and neglected animals. People who volunteer around the clock to sit with a dying horse. People who do whatever it takes to do the right thing. People who work hard for a worthy cause, then kick back together in fellowship. It is like a huge family, including the normal drama and special characters, but still a family.
I could never have anticipated how my life would change when my husband handed me the newspaper and said, "Look at this article about a horse rescue ranch."A Healing Haven is a beautiful addition to my Lemons to Lemonade series.
