About Mary E. White: Born In Milwaukee, WI, Mary White suffered the tragic loss of her mother at the tender age of eleven. The loss of her Mother left her empty and untrusting. Her journey through life took her across the US and finally back to Wisconsin to care for her ailing Father. A wonderful Husband and two beautiful children support Mary’s passion of rescuing animals. Along the way, Cochise found Mary and Mary learned , once again, the gifts of trust and love.
Cochise also had his journey in life. He was loved and owned by Kati for 24 years. Cochise grieved the death of his stable mate of 24 years. Cochise would also learn to love and trust again. Their worlds collided into one.
About the book: Deciding to become a horse owner, Mary White finds the perfect horse Cochise, a beautiful Appaloosa gelding. Little does she know that he is stolen when she purchases him. In We Walk By Faith & Not By Sight, she openly shares the joys, as well as the trials and tribulations, of owning a horse whose eyesight is failing from Equine Recurrent Uveitis (ERU). A self-proclaimed control freak, Mary learns patience, trust, and self-mastery as she and Cochise develop a unique bond. Overcoming her own inner demons, she cares for Cochise through his eye issues and even cancer.
Review by Susan Keefe
Loving horses, I was intrigued by this book’s title and as soon as I started reading it, I was captivated by this amazing story.
Deciding to buy a horse and choosing one is normally a straightforward process, however this whole story is one of obstacles’, coincidences and faith. From the very beginning, this partnership is tested in many ways and many times during Mary and Cochise’s incredible journey, a lesser human or horse may have given in. However, Mary’s utter devotion and deep love for Cochise’s and his total trust in her in return is an inspiration.
Mary’s support from her family, Stephen and Stephanie, friends and vets (both traditional and alternative) has enabled her, with no previous veterinary experience to care for him with his ERU and other problems. Her devotion to and love of this beautiful Appaloosa gelding is a beautiful story, one which proves, for me undoubtedly, that love, really does, conquer all.
