Tune in tonight at 8:00 PM EST - to our latest edition of "Hope Saves the Day" where your host Paul Cimins sits down and talks with Rupert Isaacson's "The Horse Boy" is one family's epic journey to rescue their son. Rupert and Kirstin Isaacson were heartbroken when they learned that their two-year-old son Rowan was autistic. And with each passing day, Rowan's growing isolation, his uncontrollable fits, each failed treatment, filled them with despair. Then one day Rowan escaped and ran into a field of horses. Rupert watched in horror - but saw a miracle occur. The horses responded lovingly to Rowan - and he to them. Could Rowan's affinity with these animals save their son from his condition? The Isaacsons left their home in Texas and travelled to the plains and mountains of Mongolia - the spiritual home of the horse - risking everything - their happiness, future and sanity - on an arduous epic horseback journey in search of a cure for Rowan..."An elegant, affecting narrative ...a triumph of the human spirit". ("Daily Telegraph"). "Captivating, incredible, a magical journey, an impossible dream". ("Telegraph Weekend"). "It is probably only once in a critical lifetime that one will be moved almost to tears by [such] an account ...the excellence of his writing [creates an] elegant, affecting narrative ...a triumph of the human spirit". ("Telegraph"). "Magical, miraculous, uplifting". ("Daily Mail"). Rupert Isaacson is British but lives with his family in Texas, USA.
