Running Against Traffic Book Review

PUBLICATION DATE: February 15, 2013
GENRE: Contemporary Women's Fiction

Paige Scott spent her childhood shuffled between relatives who ignored her, and her adult life hiding in her crumbling marriage to wealthy David Davenport. When David suddenly thrusts her into a remote, impoverished world, Paige is forced to face the betrayals of her past - not to mention the colorful townies of her present. Unexpected friendships and her discovery of running propel her on a jagged and comical journey toward learning how to truly live.
Wow, David was really rough on Paige and it really wasn't all her fault. After all, he was seeing someone else behind her back, so for him to blame her for everything, kinda made me a little mad. I hate self righteous people who think that there stuff is better than mine.

But, Paige got the ultimate revenge. She may have not been a good person when she first got to that little town that David just threw her into and left without much money, but she slowly came around and made something of herself.

She made some good friends, fixed up the house and then sat quietly for awhile and made plans for her future. Too bad Al won't be a part of it, but I think they both knew that he couldn't be. He's from the little backwoods town and she is from the city. But I am so glad she will get her revenge on David, but in a nice clean way.

Great book that could teach us all how to live life better and be a better person. You will enjoy reading this book!

Happy Reading!
