Out of the darkness came light. On September 27, 2006, a tractor-trailer crashed on Interstate 44 in rural Missouri. Forty-two horses were onboard, headed for a meatpacking plant in Illinois. The truck landed on its side, trapping the animals. In the inky-black night, volunteers worked side by to save the animals. Many of the animals were taken to Longmeadow Rescue Ranch. "Twist of Fate" is the story of Twister, the "miracle colt" of Longmeadow Rescue Ranch. Twister was born on April 18, 2007, seven months after the accident. The miracle of Twister is that his mother, Mama, was pregnant with him at the time of the accident. Twist of Fate tells the story of the fateful night of the accident and the hope that Twister's birth inspired.

Autographed books will be available for sale on May 26.
