Book Preview: Golden State

goldem stateGolden State (2014), author Michelle Richmond’s latest novel, takes place in a single, chaotic day. Physician Julie Merrill has signed her divorce papers ending her marriage to husband Tom, and her sister Heather has gone into labor on the other side of the city. As she struggles across San Francisco to be at Heather’s side, Julie must deal with an injured foot, the traffic congestion of an election day which includes a vote on California secession, her vandalized Jeep, and a hostage situation at the VA hospital where she is employed.

The plot  seesaws back and forth between the past and present as Julie examines her relationships, the choices she has made, the traumatic incident that changed her life forever, and the decisions she is faced with that will impact not only her future, but that of so many others as well.

The author’s unique approach is refreshing and unhurried. This one sounds like a winner.
