Paige Scott does not choose a personal journeyby stepping off a bus onto a Tuscan road; she is practically shoved out thedoor and left to eat the dust of a car's rapidly spinning wheels. At first, she seemshopeless and pathetically lost, but respect for her character is earned with eachchallenging encounter.. The small town's misfits enrich the story withtheir own weaknesses and strengths; they accentuate Paige's development.
Running Against Traffic includes indomitablespirits, compassion, sexual tension, humor, and wisdom. It flows naturallyuntil its rewarding conclusion. A wonderful read.
