Reading & Book Signing
A dramatic thriller about a wife and mother who goes missing in the Colorado wilderness and the female ranger determined to find her, Breaking Wild marks the stunning adult fiction debut by author Diane Les Becquets. In alternating chapters set against a powerful story of survival, Becquets peels back the lives and identities of both women to tell a tale of fractured relationships, tragic pasts, and the human capacity for friendship, love, loyalty, and living and believing against all odds. Flawed, fierce, and passionate, both women mirror the cruel and beautiful nature that surrounds them. Joining us for a reading and signing, Becquets will share their powerful story with us.
