    "Myra Blake off to a good start." The Long Haul is a novella about former lovers who unexpectedly meet again after five years. Thomas is a truck driver, and Zoe works for the Darby Municipal Building. He steps in when he overhears trouble with her boss…and she accuses him of being judgmental all because he sees Darby as a nowhere town. The book has both characters feeling like they should be waking up at any moment. An unknowing reader would suspect that The Long Haul really is just a dream. With a few holes filled in…anyone who remembers his dreams knows that they always seem to do leaps and bounds with little explanation. This leaves the dreamer to fill in other details; and in this case, the reader is left to use her imagination as well. Blake could easily have told everything that happened five years ago, including the hot romance. But that is not what this story is about. It is about the present, with the past as what it is supposed to me—mostly anyway—and that is the... More > past. Blake is an excellent writer in telling the story of tormented former lovers, but some of the details are not introduced properly (in my opinion). Half way through the book, we are introduced to the characters’ spiritual natures—and it seems a little forced. Blake’s good at not forcing it down our throats though. Ultimately, The Long Haul is a good, quick read—even if it sometimes feels like Cliff Notes instead of the complete story. But when I was directed to to check out this book, Myra Blake warned me that it truly was “just a freshman effort”, meaning it feels like the first thing she ever wrote. Ms. Blake should give herself more credit. The first story published is always the toughest.< Less
