DIVExhausted by her job as a political press secretary, Melinda Roth found the courage to escape. Her goal: a simpler life in rural Illinois that would let her pursue her passion for writing. But then real life intervened. A fire at a neighboring farm and a misinterpreted gesture of kindness transformed her into the reluctant caretaker of a homeless menagerie of animals. Roth, coauthor of the New York Times-bestseller From Baghdad with Love, writes vividly, movingly, and often humorously of the chaos that descended into her life. One of her new tenants was a wild mustang, broken but not bowed, his restless spirit propelling him to escape the fences and pens that enclosed hima€”a far different life than before he was violently captured by a government-sponsored a€œround-up.a€ Ultimately these two fiercely independent characters each provide the catalyst for the othera€™s life-changing and life-affirming decisions. Mestengo is a captivating, emotional account that taps into readersa€™ love of animals: Marley and Me meets The Horse Whisperer. An entertaining and delightful read, it is a cinematic, sometimes tense, but always beautiful story of the power of healing. /divA Wild Mustang, a Writer on the Run, and the Power of the Unexpected Melinda Roth ...
