Excerpt no. 1 from Pegasus by Marilyn Holdsworth

WIN IS ATTRACTED TO HANNAH…from the novel PEGASUS by Marilyn Holdsworth

Pegasus by Marilyn Holdsworth. Win is attracted to Hannah.They had met so unexpectedly. She was seated with friends in the box next to his on the opening day of the Penbrook Park Races. Quite by accident they were introduced by his friend Neil Jacobs, whose thoroughbreds were running that day. She immediately
impressed him with her quiet unassuming manner. Neil had spoken of her articles and told him she was sure to be a candidate for the Pulitzer Prize one day.
Long ago Win had resigned himself to his solitary life after losing his first wife to cancer. But looking at Hannah’s young eager face today he felt how much he wanted her near him. At forty-five, Winston Caughfield III was a handsome distinguished looking
man, but still very aware that he was fifteen years her senior. But when they were together, the age difference seemed of no importance to either of them. In many ways she seemed mature far beyond her years, perhaps because of her total commitment to her work and also the tragedy of her young husband’s death. She seldom spoke of her loss, only once had she mentioned that ill-fated Chicago flight. She was very courageous. He looked over at her now, hair flowing loosely in the wind as she rode. He never would have suspected there was such strength in that slight delicate figure riding beside him, but more than once he had seen her face her adversaries with determination. Some secret source of energy seemed to well up inside and spill out of her. And he knew when she started her research and investigation into this horse thing she would be relentless. He looked forward to sharing in it, but at the same time felt a foreboding sense of fear for her. Above all he wanted to protect her and keep her near him.

Keep wild mustangs off the endangered  species list.
Animal activist encourages protection of horses in new book.

By long-time resident of San Marino, Marilyn Holdsworth.

SAN MARINO, CA-What do Doris Day, Bob Barker, Mary Tyler Moore, have in common? They share an immense love for animals and a strong desire to protect them. But while others speak out  publicly, Holdsworth puts her efforts into words.

In her book “Pegasus” Holdsworth shines light on the issues of animal abuse and exploitation. The story centers around Hannah, a young widowed journalist fiercely dedicated to saving wild mustangs from slaughter. After rescuing a badly injured horse, she searches to discover the animal’s true identity and fights to save it’s life, all the while falling in love.

A former horse owner and trainer as well as a supporter of Horse Rescue and Wild Horse Preservation, Holdsworth’s lifelong commitment to horses served as motivation for “Pegasus”.
” I wrote this book because I am deeply concerned about the exploitation and abuse of horses.”

Holdsworth says. “I wanted to make people aware and gain their support in this fight against maltreatment.”
“Pegasus” captivates audiences with an eye-opening and adventurous tale of love and wild mustangs.
