Breaking Wild

Amy Raye's past the she suspects that Amy Raye might yet be alive Pru's own search becomes an obsession for a woman whose life is just as mysterious as the clues she has left behind As the novel follows Amy Raye and Pru in alternating threads Breaking Wild assumes the white knuckled pace of a thriller laying bare Amy Raye's ultimate reckoning with the secrets of her life and Pru's dogged pursuit of the woman who against all odds she believes she can fin. I truly enjoyed this uniue novel by Diane Les Becuets featuring two women Amy Ray Latour a bow hunter in pursuit of elk and Pru Hathaway the search and rescue ranger who with her dog Kona searches for Amy when she disappears during a camping tripThe novel is told in alternating chapters from both Amy and Pru s point of view and also goes back in forth in time so the reader learns about each woman s childhood young adult life and current situation While at the most literal level Amy is lost and Pru seeks her the reader learns that in the metaphorical sense each of the women is both lost and seeking Both characters have a realistic depth to them and Les Becuets gives us a novel that feels both character driven with the suspense of wanting to know how the plot will endI mention the two women as main characters but Les Becuets beautifully draws a third character worth mentioning the landscape Nature plays an important role in the story and the author s vibrant description of the setting and Amy and Pru s love of nature is thoroughly enjoyableThank you to NetGalley and Berkley for a galley of this book in exchange for an honest review

Exceptional Read on so I can tell you why The Hook I couldn t resist Berkley s pre publishing description or my GR friend Patty s review of this titleThe Line While other girls turned sweet sixteen she learned how to field dress a deer The Sinker Epigram We can never break free from the dark and degrading past Let us see life again nevertheless in the words of Isaac Babelas a meadow over which women and horses wander MAXINE KUMIN Women and Horses I rarely read a book that I can t put down but I knew in this case I had to in order to savor the experience So put it down I did reading it over several days allowing time to contemplate stretching out the suspense and sheer beauty of this survival story Breaking Wild reads like a memoir purposely so as described by author Diane Les Becuets In an interview on NPR she explains that there could be a memoir in her but at this time she prefers to write autobiographical fiction which frees me up because I care so deeply for the people in my life not to have to inflict any hurt or shame on anyone else I d read her memoir in a minute yet I respect her wishes to keep her experiences of pain and sorrow hers and hers alone until if and when she wants to share themMarch is celebrated as Women s History Month and many books will be recommended that feature strong women Breaking Wild features not one strong woman but two and deserves to be added to that list Amy Raye is on a hunting trip for elk with two male companions Raye a bow hunter has yet to get her tag and sets off alone to remedy this She wounds a male elk and must track him to make the kill Somehow she becomes horribly lost in the Colorado wilderness in snow pack conditions and freezing cold Prue Hathaway and her rescue dog Kona set out to find the missing Raye This is no easy task and after several days of horrific weather Raye is feared dead What is initially a rescue mission soon becomes one of search and recovery Over several weeks we are privy to Amy Raye s and Prue Hathaway s thoughts and feelings as the story unfolds in alternating chapters and we learn the back story of their lives There is a profound feeling of unity as one woman hopes for rescue and the other tries not to give up that hope Diane Les Becuets portrays two determined brave courageous women in this her debut into adult fiction Amy and Prue are so real my emotions were raw throughout This might not be the book for those of you who are against hunting of animals for any reason For the rest of you let me assure you that Les Becuets shows a deep respect for the elk her character hunts and the gift this flesh provides She details the hunt perhaps than some may tolerate In addition her lush descriptions of nature and the wilderness made Breaking Wild an adventuresome read for meI have purchased a copy of Breaking Wild and will be donating it to my public library I predict it will be a word of mouth hit with readers
