Tails of Sweetbrier by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne is an incredible true story of a young girl who overcame many, many obstacles. With the support of a loving family, the incredible joy of riding horses and some awe inspiring determination, Deanie tells her tale.
Do you have a dream that feels too big to achieve? The important message Deanie puts across in this story of her life is that even when others say things are impossible, if you just keep persisting, you can achieve so much.
A specialist gave the opinion that Deanie would never be able to walk after she was still crawling at three years of age. Cerebral palsy was diagnosed.
Unconvinced, Deanie’s father determined to teach her to horse ride to strengthen her legs. This wasn’t without its setbacks and showing true determination, even at a young age Deanie would get back on every time she fell off.
Tails of Sweetbrier is a delightful read made that much more special because it is true. Anyone who reads it will be inspired to keep persisting with that dream, even when others say it’s impossible. A truly motivational read.
