Pregnant at 16, Renee Goodchild drops out of school and marries. Now she’s trapped in rural Texas with Kenny, her violent, garbage-collecting husband. A bleak future seems assured until she meets self-appointed relationship guru, Pearly.

“That’s why you don’t let ‘em rule the roost. ’Cause you can’t count on ‘em to be there the next mornin’ when it’s time to crow,” the worldly Pearly advises.

Renee narrates this tale of ruin and redemption where the damaged and downtrodden lead each other to unintended, sometimes heartbreaking, and often bittersweet outcomes. When Horses Had Wings examines the lives of broken people competing for the most basic needs: the primal urge for affection and the eternal search for acceptance.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I love when you get to the end of a book and want more and that’s how I felt when I got to the end of this book, I didn’t want it to end.

*******

My emotions ran the gamut…from anger to sadness to hope, and even laughter at Diana’s wit. An emotionally charged read from the moment I began until I finished in only a few hours. I’ve never been to Texas, but Diana’s words let me taste the dust and feel the heat of long summers in her native state. Without doubt, this is a book I highly recommend.

*******

I LOVED this book! Brilliant character detail, and such imagery. The book really flowed well, keeping you on the edge of your seat! I read it in a few days because I couldn’t put it down!

*******

This is a story that many women, unfortunately, can relate to. It is about discovering inner strength for all the right reasons. Without a doubt, I’ll be reading more by this author. Her narrative voice is distinctive and the story engaged this reader 100% from start to finish. Highly recommended!

This story was very touching. Diana is a very skillful and artistic writer that makes you feel her story. Love this book and can’t wait to read others from her.
