"Golden State" a book by Michelle Richmond
This page turner was one of the best so far this year, (2014).
One day in the life of Dr. Julie Walker, with flashbacks over several years. San Francisco is in absolute turmoil as the population of "the Golden State" is voting to secede from the United States. Julie must make her way to be with her sister, who has gone into labor. Julie comes "face to face" with Dennis, who has taken 3 of Julie's co-workers hostage, across the street from where her sister is in labor.
There are so many layers to this story, it was very interesting to watch Michelle peel them back to get to the end of Julie's day-long voyage. Packed with love, distrust, hate, rage and forgiveness.
