A puzzling photograph, a box filled with faded toy horses, and a single fractured memory are all that Maya has left of her mother. In Grandmother's house in California, she lives like a captive, tethered by Grandmother's rules: no talk of her mother, no friends, no foolishness of any kind...until a shocking event changes everything.

A world away, in the rugged Wyoming wilderness, a wild mustang called Artemisia runs free, belonging only to the stars. In a land where mountain lions and wranglers pose an ever-present threat, she must vigilantly protect her new foal...until a devastating act separates them from their band.

Like a braided rein, Maya's and Artemisia's lives will ultimately intertwine. Together, they hold the key to each other's survival. Download and start listening now!

    " Every girl will love this story of Maya, who is orphaned, lives with a mean loveless grandmother, then all of a sudden goes to live with a family she'd forgotten. Although the story is formulaic, it still does a good job of painting a picture of the Wyoming landscape, the horse camp where Maya spends a summer, and the connections between horses and people. "

    " I like Pam Munoz Ryan, especially after hearing her speak at a teacher conference a year and a half ago. I liked this book about wild horses and a little girl who learns about herself as she forges a bond with horses. "

    " Maya is a captive. In Grandmother's house in California, every word and action is strictly monitored, and even Maya's memories of her mother have been erased -- except within the imaginary world she has created. A world away, in the rugged Wyoming wilderness, a tobiano Paint horse called Artemisia runs free, belonging only to the stars. She embodies the spirit of the wild -- and she holds the key to Maya's memories. How Maya's and Artemisia's lives intertwine, like a braided rein, is at the heart of this richly drawn adventure about captivity and freedom, about holding on and letting go. "
