Heartwarming New Book is Released in Time for the Holidays

Available now, “Dear Dolly,” written by Emily Lineberger Bridges, shares with readers the journal that she wrote to her childhood horse, Dolly. She was Emily’s best friend, confidant and companion. While Emily grew up and saw her life unfolding ahead of her, Dolly grew older and their time together ended.

This book chronicles Emily’s return to horses after a 30-year-absence and the pursuit of her lifelong dream of building Summerwind farm. “Dear Dolly” shares the true hardships, challenges, and triumphs that Emily faced while pursing that dream, which was inspired by her years with Dolly.

“Dear Dolly” is not just a series of touching, true stories; it is also a roadmap for anyone who longs to follow their own dreams. Unique describes this book perfectly, because in addition to being inspirational, it is a “how not-to” book, offering equine education learned the hard way!“

This book is a “must-read” for anyone considering a back-yard breeding operation, as well as for anyone contemplating re-entry into the world of horses as an adult. The helpful suggestions at the end of each chapter are worth the price of the book.” Ted Land, Arcadia, Florida

“Emily has enfolded the reader in the story, like they are right there when it happened. I could not put this book down. Dear Dolly is a true treasure that all horsepersons should own. It’s like getting a friend and always having the friend there to talk with about your horse problems.” Julie A. Hurd, York, Pennsylvania

“Emily’s wonderful story touched me to the core as I, too, have known a special horse wise in ways far beyond those of the average equine. Dolly was surely one of those – the special horses of our lives that change its course, give it depth and direction.” Laine Raia, North Reading, Massachusetts
