Half Broke by Ginger Gaffney

A review

On Sale 2/4/2020

Horses, New Mexico, introversion, damaged people, lesbians: what’s not to love, right? I gobbled up this compelling memoir in one Sunday afternoon and was left wanting more and a little homesick for my one-time home in New Mexico.

Ginger Gaffney is a horse trainer who happened onto an opportunity to work with residents at an alternative half-way house/rehab ranch. There she find broken people, unbroken horses, and connections that change everyone, both 2 and 4-legged.

The stories are real and not all with happy endings. The writing is not as polished as it could be, but that really doesn’t detract from the experience. I am glad that Gaffney gave me a glimpse into her world and grateful that places like DS Ranch exist. It gives me hope for better answers to old, awful problems.

This one gets 4 stars from me.

Thanks to NetGalley and for this advanced readers copy.
