It explores what happens when a rapist fights for parenting rights over the rape-conceived child. Dr. Melisa Klimaszewski, Drake University, author of Brief Lives: Wilkie Collins (Hesperus Press) writes: Weaving together the intimate personal struggles of its characters with the earth-deep worries of a small town, Rachel’s Blue deftly pulls readers into a close-knit community only to show how suffocating such a community can be. Mda’s insights into the hopes and sufferings of human relationships, into the pains of truth telling, and into American culture are as poignant as ever.
