Wilderness

Experimental Womens Fiction, 45,000 words

Battling cancer, runner Miriam Moses decides to run the length of Australia for a children's charity. On her run she encounters many other people in the throes of turmoil. Giving of herself and caring enough to help, each meeting leaves the parties in a different place and shows the power of hope in the face of disaster.
 
I liked the format and premise of the book. Ms. Odgers does a good job of showing people in a variety of situations although it is unsettling to meet people constantly in crisis.
