RUN Ragged is the thrilling second story by the award-winning author of Women’s Work. This brilliantly imagined novel is both a scathing satire and a profoundly poignant look at the price we are willing to pay for peace and what we are willing to ignore to keep our conscience clear.
Review: How far would you go for peace? That's only one of the topics explored in this engaging novel. Rhia, the protagonist, an independent sea captain, is one tough cookie. When she'd trapped in re-education facility where she's getting brainwashed, it takes all her willpower to resist. A book with both a strong plot and characterization. It's a mishmash of genres that collide and match well, and ultimately forms an unique, well-crafted story.
