Wonder and Beauty: My Journey from Heartbreak to Healing through the Wonder of Horses is a story about a mother’s choice to quit fighting in the courtroom after years of custody battles resulting in parental alienation and the eventual abduction of her only child. Miller made the choice to save herself and her child by leaving and going back to the birthplace of her son in San Francisco, California. She begins to rebuild her life in the midst of the global financial crash of 2008 after seeing her real estate business collapse, her home foreclosed upon and her life savings vanish in the midst of the hundreds of court cases that took place between her and her ex-husband.
While writing her book the author continued to move forward with the hope that one day she would reunite with her son. One morning in the early hours a dream about reunification with her son came to her and she turned it into a chapter of the book. Her time with horses introduced her to the language of the heart and how once linked in love this bond can never be dissolved. The author and her fiancé moved to a property in Idaho to begin their life together with the dream that includes horses and all of their children.
