Estill is a well known humorist, but what kind of writer is she? In a word: Multi-layered. Estill juggles genres with a the dexterity of a master. "When Horses Had Wings" is not written as a memoir, but the voice of Renee is true enough, as the narrator to the story, to make you forget it's fiction and believe it is real. Sadly, the story is not a new one. Many women and men, boys and girls, really, face the reality of becoming parents too soon, pledging their lives with to one another and then living in failed dreams. Estill writes this story with clarity and honesty which makes the end wholly satisfying.
