Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When I was twelve years old, there was a rumor going around the community where I lived about a group of people that were "watching" the town. That rumor followed me for years and finally came to live in the novel series - Big Spring Novels - of which RUN is the first. I will continue to share those shadows with you.

More About the Author

Hope builder. Dream inspirer. Word lover. "It's All about Relationships" guide. Aficionado of inappropriate laughter.

Kathryn Lang builds hope through words both written and spoken. She seeks to connect with others and to discover covered, hidden, and forgotten dreams. Kathryn plays with words, dancing around with them in unfettered joy or painting with them to present unique and simple images of hope.

"Always find a way to laugh. Laughter sparks hope and once hope finds a way in then it all becomes possible."

As an award winning author and syndicated radio host, Kathryn lets her personal life infuse her creative spirit to craft the stories of hope and possibility. Each phrase shows a part of Kathryn's heart that allows her to connect with others in an open and honest way. These connections begin the process of growing up relationships that make the way possible for the journey ahead.

Kathryn C. Lang lives and writes in a little cabin in the woods in North Alabama along the Big Spring Creek. Local lore and local areas are infused throughout her writings and her presentations. Her encouragement and support (and often her materials) come from her loving children and husband (and best friend for more years than either wants to admit).

She started writing at an early age and enjoyed the opportunities writing allowed for entertaining and encouraging others. She followed a different path in college and pursued a degree in Leisure Services with a focus on tourism and commercial recreations. Her work in Leisure Services for the University of South Alabama and NAS Cecil Field still allowed her to entertain and encourage others - often with written words.

Kathryn started creating content for websites around the globe, and through their encouragement and instructions, she launched her own websites. Her freelance writing career became a full-time profession in 2007. Her writing moved from content for others to her own niche and focus in 2010.

Her passion for helping others find a life of peace and joy has provided her with opportunities to share her encouragement through her own experiences in words both written and spoken. Kathryn believes that each person has a unique purpose to fulfill. She desires to help others find their own path to that purpose and design. A life lived in purpose will be one filled with peace.

Kathryn offers a phrase of hope in order to shine the Light on the moment. She works through her columns, articles, books and workshops. Her personal hope is that every person who encounters her words will feel as if those words were written (or spoken) just for her or him.

"In my fiction, I tell a story that provides an uplifting message entrenched in hope. In my non-fiction and columns, I offer words that will point to hope. In my talks, I tell stories that inspire hope. Helping others discover their path to hope is my focus.

I write to that person that is trying to walk the tightrope of family, work and God - and keep them all in the right balance. She has a sense of humor, enjoys a little snark now and then, and references movies and songs in her every day speech. She plays with words and enjoys being around others that can keep up. She has a solid relationship with God, but hungers to go deeper. She is not afraid of faith in her own life or in the lives of those she encounters. She lives a life reaching for the rainbow."

I took this on vacation and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's not my normal genre but I was caught up in the story. Beth's husband is murdered in the first two pages. His dying word is "RUN." Now Beth has been running for three years.

She has now settled after changing her name to Sara. Now unmailed letters begin appearing in her mailbox. Consisting of only a few words they lead her to realize that someone wants her to look more deeply into her husband's death.

The story captured my attention from the beginning and held it throughout. It's a great summer read. The only thing I wanted was more detail in what the entity her husband was involved in was. It seemed to be something between a cult and organized crime.

Along the way she finds good Christian friends, one man especially, who help her as she seeks peace. She finds this in Christ. It was believable in that she doesn't understand it entirely all of a sudden. I think she might have read, or at least been interested in reading Scripture a little more. Considering what she was going through and the pace of the investigation I understand. The hand of God in the conclusion was evident and not over done.

Good start Kathryn. I hope your next book comes soon and is a sequel. It's entitled 'Watch' so I think it might. Gleaned that information from her website.

Ms. Lang's debut novel Run is worth the time to read. Her character Sara is on the run from a past she doesn't understand to a present which terrifies her. She learns during her journey the life is not to be feared but embraced. She also learns about the freeing power of God's grace. Stephen Olar author of Xtreme Xianity

Awesome debut novel by author Kathryn Lang!! The characters were relatable and the subject matter intriguing. Only a few lulls in the action but all in all, well worth the time spent reading! Great first effort - certainly looking forward to hearing more from this talented author.

I had anticipated the book would be a good read according to a positive review in a reputable Christian periodical. The initial pages, laying the foundation for the book, were riveting and suspenseful--and that was even before getting to Chapter 1.

But from Chapter 1 forward, I found the writing tedious, repetitive, juvenile. The characters were often "smiling"--too often. My husband and I pressed hard to get through the book and gained some interest in the last couple chapters, but overall it was torturous reading. The plot concept was good, but the story development was lacking.

I'm glad I downloaded this when it was free. Save your money. I'm only giving this 2 stars because I don't have an option for 1.5 and I don't think it was bad enough to merit a 1 star. The book started off promising, but it built up to nothing. Obvious killer, no real answers, and no insight as to why Sara had spent years "running" before she met Chris. Ugh.

You can run, but you can never hide. Sometimes the only way to have a future is to turn around and face the past. Inside Kathryn C. Lang's book Run, I discovered how true it is that you can't run from your past . Beth formerly known as Sara discovered this hard truth through attempting to run from her tragic past.

After witnessing the murder of her husband Sara changed her name to Beth , and ran away to a new life . After receiving a chain of mysterious letters, it became evident to Beth that she hadn't outran her past. In fact jus the opposite seemed to be the case, her past seemed to be pursing her at an undeniable accelerated speed!

Beth enlisted the help of the detective who originally was involved in her husbands murder case. Both the detective and Beth although at different times end up in a small town in Alabama searching for answers. More questions than answers initially began surfacing .As the pieces of the mystery began unravelling, it became evident that a lot more was involved in the death of Beth's husband than she had originally thought. Faith plays a huge role in the many twists and turns inside the book.

I felt intensely connected to the characters within the chapters of Run. Numerous times during the book I found myself attempting to solve pieces of the puzzle. It was as if I was present inside the settings of the book. It was impossible for me to put down Run until I had completely read it.

I love the way Kathryn wove faith in real ways inside her book. During the book I believe like myself you will find yourself cheering on behalf of the characters while they search for more answers than questions!

The writing style is jilted and awkward. The story is boring and predictable. Lots of banter among the characters but no depth to the conversation. Not believable reactions to the situations in the story.
