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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.” VOYA
“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.” Children’s Literature
