Rousing Reviews Heighten Interest in the Gripping Biography Loving Larry, A Tribute to the Lady Who Named Peptoboonsmal










Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) January 10, 2006

Readers nationwide are lauding the powerful and skillfully-written story of well-known cutting horse breeder Elaine Hall, loving wife of the late Larry Hall, a gifted horseman severely afflicted by mental illness. Longtime friend and first-time author Penny Wormet has perceptively captured the romance, drama and intensity of an extraordinary woman’s walk with God through adversity and triumph. Quickly entranced by humble beginnings and a near-perfect marriage, readers become spellbound as lives are shattered by the devastation of mental illness; and they close the book with awe and admiration. Loving Larry is termed by one reviewer as “a brilliant literary accomplishment—a heroic and humbling read that has Best Seller written all over it.”

“From beginning to end, this touching saga warms the heart and touches the soul,” says Dickson.Varner, DVM, MS, Professor and Chief of Theriogenology, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas. Editorial reviews unanimously agree. Award-winning author Sally Harrison describes Loving Larry as “a riveting page-turner that reads like a good novel … an honest, heart-wrenching and ultimately uplifting story.” Gala Nettles, free lance writer and columnist, assesses it as “more descriptive than any words a doctor can offer and more explanatory than any textbook can impart … an insightful glimpse into the inner workings of the bipolar mind.” Alan Gold, Director of Publishing for Cutting Horse Chatter, commends Wormet’s “meticulous research of the cutting horse industry” and rates Loving Larry “a first-class adventure (in which) Wormet demonstrates a fine ear for dialog and a great sense of pacing.” Glory Ann Kurtz, Executive Editor of Quarter Horse News, calls it “a true story that reads like a suspense novel … a must to read.”

Likewise reviewers apart from the horse industry acclaim the impact of Loving Larry. “I applaud Elaine Hall’s courage in coming forth with this story … an accurate and moving account of manic-depressive disorder and how that disease ultimately stole Larry Hall from himself and from his family,” writes Judith Hunter, MD, Medical Director, Forensic Psychiatry, Dallas Metrocare Services. Pastor John Krebs, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Adams, Wisconsin, declares, “You will care for the people here, experience the full spectrum of their emotions in a way few authors manage to convey, and watch in awe as the loving providence of God unfolds around and through Elaine Hall.” Lucy Halverson, Publishing Editor of Lyman County Herald, Presho, S.D. states, “The book has much to offer anyone who deals with struggles in their lives.” And Sue Anderson, a Wisconsin reader simply says, “What a totally awesome book! What an inspiring woman!”

Wormet and Hall welcome opportunities for interviews on the topics of faith, mental illness and cutting lore.
