Book Feature: Sketches from the Spanish Mustang
by Benjamin X. Wretlind

There are dreams of fire, blood, twisted metal and faint, dying cries carried on the wind.
The Artist has lost far too much in such a short period of time. Her mind is flooded with uncertainty, self-reflection holds no absolution, and she knows her mirror is too difficult to scrutinize. Broken, she hopes to find peace with her one true gift. With a pencil, a sketchbook and a keen eye for the details of the soul, her lines and smudges, curves and tone reveal the stories behind her subjects.

Life emerges on the page--vengeance, salvation, love and death. Within a town forgotten, the Artist's subjects fight for survival, only to be saved in the sketches of a woman with a gift . . . and a curse.

Remembering is penance.

"With a skill on par with any of the great American novelists, Mr. Wretlind has penned a tale of such emotional and literary depth that it will haunt the reader long after the last page is turned. He has penned a tale filled with rage, sorrow, loss and just a little bit of hope. He has penned a tale that can only be described as a masterpiece." - Amazon Review
