Publisher's Summary

In captivating prose, Diane Les Becquets tells the story of one woman missing in the Colorado wilderness and another bent on discovering the missing woman's whereabouts in an unforgettably moving and thrilling literary debut.
It is the last weekend of the season for Amy Raye Latour to get away. Driven to spend days alone in the wilderness, Amy Raye, mother of two, is compelled by the quiet and the rush of nature. But this time, her venture into a remote area presents a different set of dangers than Amy Raye has planned for, and she finds herself on the verge of the precarious edge that she's flirted with her entire life.
When Amy Raye doesn't return to camp, ranger Pru Hathaway and her dog respond to the missing person call. After an unexpected snowfall and few leads, the operation turns into a search and recovery. Pru, though, is not resigned to that. The more she learns about the woman for whom she is searching, and about Amy Raye's past, the more 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 find.

A must read especially if you like the outdoors

Would you listen to Breaking Wild again? Why?

yes, it is a good story; narrated in an engaging way. I felt as if I learned something about being stranded in the wild. It was all believable.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, Amy Ray was lost in the woods and I wondered if they would find her. I kept wondering how she could survive such an ordeal


What about Therese Plummer and Saskia Maarleveld ’s performance did you like?

They just read it as if they were the person in the story. NO, they WERE the people in the story


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I just finished a two hour hike and listened to it and was so engrossed in the book that I felt as if I had just began the hike instead of ending the hike. I almost wanted to keep hiking so that I could finish the book.


Any additional comments?

I want the author to write another book and I want the two women to read it.

Compelling story

This is a compelling story of two women who went to Colorado to find themselves. I enjoyed the hunting and search and rescue descriptions and fhe characters. I wish there would have been less graphic sexual detail. I found myself skipping over them in the audio recording.
