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, she lives like a captive, tethered by rules 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 pose an ever-present threat, she must vigilantly defend her foal until a devastating act separates them from their band. Like a braided rein, Maya’s and Artemisia’s lives will ultimately intertwine.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The narration adroitly shifts from childlike to a more serious tone as segments are told from the perspective of the wild mare, Artemisia, whose path will intertwine with Maya’s.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Young readers will learn empathy and compassion not only from the humans but from the horses as well. It is a story about the connection of all living things, and one can be thankful for the writers who recognize the importance of actualizing that concept.”


  • “Both the descriptions of the mustangs’ life and of Maya’s growth from an angry self-centered liar into a kind and honest girl capable of making difficult decisions are handled with skill and realism.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The story will enthrall young horse lovers while also pleasing fans of Ryan’s previous work featuring strong female protagonists who solve their own problems in a unique way.”
