After Becca's husband tracks her down, she has to summon all her strength. But can she finally stop running away?
Rebecca is running away from an abusive relationship and heading to Arizona. Where she meets her aunts best friend, Gaby. She is given shelter at Salt River inn. As she struggles with ptsd, she in love with the desert and meets some good friends she starts to feel safe. When her ex finds her, she has to find the will to live and fight back to bring her life back in balance or will she perish in her fight to survive.
The characters in this book are varied and well developed. Rebecca is a sweet woman who has been through so much. She is scared and well just beaten down from her past and her abusive husband. We also have a wild stallion that I compare Rebecca to, he wants to get back to his herd and he is lost with out them. Just like the stallion we see Rebecca grow stronger through out the book. With the help of her herd Gaby, Nick, Walt and Oscar. We see them surrounding her with the love she deserves so she can heal. The stallion and his little lamb buddy prove that with the same amount of love and devotion we can all be the best we can be. These characters are so well written and complex
This is one of those stories where you are transported to a place where you can't put the book down and you don't want to. I first saw the book I was like wooohoo a wild horse book. Then I started reading and wow I hurt for the characters all of the characters. The timelines are parallel to each other . The growth of Becca and the voyage home for the stallion bring us both pain and happiness. There were moments though that I felt the story kind of moved a little slow but over all I loved the story and really enjoyed the way the characters grew . So if you want a story of pain and the growing up and becoming stronger and over coming . This is the story for you check it out.
