A young woman. A calculated act. The close knit bond of extraordinary women leading ordinary lives. True is a stunning tale, which beautifully weaves these dynamic characters and their pristine wild environment, their families and the animals they love, into what undoubtedly becomes a story one will never forget. “A lesson in healing, strength and courage, and above all, the magnificence of true friendship."

There have been so many comments about the book cover and interior design, thank you Lani Phillips and Jill Voges for your focus and inspirational art work and design.
On a sadder note, one of my horses, Elvira is not doing well and we will be deciding soon if her time on this earth is finished. She has been such a giving companion over her 33 years, as a ranch horse, kid's horse, barrel racer and trail horse. She served humans with an open willingness and spirited heart, I am grateful she will be forever remembered, as she plays an important role in True. Bless our animals and all they give to us. ~ Melinda
Here is a review that was sent to me by a wonderful gentlemen, I am so thrilled to share it with you.
I admire art excellence, and I am envious of the fortunate souls that can create it, be it writing stories, making music, or painting pretty pictures. Thus, I was first impressed by the beautiful and intricate photograph on the cover, by Lani Phillips. But dont' let the cover fool you. "True", by Melinda Field is not a novel about butterflies and flowers. No, it is the hard hitting fast moving story of the sometimes happy, sometimes tragic, sometimes sad, and always interesting adventures of the Hidden Horse Sisterhood. Ms. Field is a talented and often brilliant writer, who made me see what the women saw, hear what the women heard, and feel what the women felt. I smiled when they were happy, feared for their safety when they were threatened, and I wept with them when they were sad. I heard the creak of the saddles, smelled the wonderful aroma of the sweating horses on the trail, and felt the sting of campfire smoke in my eyes. I inhaled the perfume of the tall pines, and was refreshed by the cool waters of alpine lakes.
So, as a grizzled old coot, who spent most of his life in a testosterone dominant environment, I was surprised, I was impressed, I was moved. I can only say " Ms. Field that ya done good, ya done real good girl. The Hidden Horse Sisterhood lives!"
