But to be known as a victim would have been the last thing in the world the real Sonora Webster would have wanted; indeed, she took the lemons life handed her and made the proverbial lemonade, refusing to be a `victim' in any sense of the word.And that is the Sonora that Miner presents here, as he emphasizes the positive aspects of her life and what she accomplished, rather than dwelling upon the negative.Whatever little thing it was that drew you in, soon your gaze and heart were captured by a wild-hearted woman.

It's a film that should be required viewing for anyone who has ever cried out that the world owes them a living, because the message of `Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken,' directed by Steve Miner, is that `Life' isn't fair, but when the worst happens you have to pick yourself up by the bootstraps and get on with it; nobody's going to do it for you.

It has something to do with a little thing called `pride,' and everything to do with the courage and tenacity it takes for someone to at least try to stand up when even the very hand of Fate seems bent on keeping them down.

The first time she is shown from behind as she wraps her feet around the chair legs then grips the seat with her hands.

Then the close up shows her already gripping with her hands and then wrapping her feet.

And so he does; Carver hires her, but as a stable hand.

What he doesn't know is that he's just hired a girl who refuses to give up on something once she's set her mind to it, and when Sonora takes the job, it puts a hay fork in her hand, but her determined eye is on a horse, as well as that forty foot tower looming above that pool of water, beckoning to her, even as a dream borne on the wings of desire.

Her beaming smile was the first thing that caught your eye.

Or maybe it was the way she was covered in dirt and singing happily all on her own.

You always embraced the wild, treasuring the rarity of a love like this.

You dared to love a wild hearted woman; in return you have a wild once-in-a-lifetime type of love.

Yet you followed your heart and set out to win the heart of this wild-hearted girl.
