The Jagged Edge is a fictional novel written in the setting of the metropolitan Richmond, Virginia. It is the story of a young woman who suffered the loss of her mother in childhood and the events that followed her death. Angela Harris, a young woman, copes with her mother’s death in an extraordinary way. The main characters all play a part to deliver the story, exemplifying that faith can restore any misfortune or tragedy.
“This is Anne R. Murray’s third book, which is her first novel. If it’s true that “Art holds up a mirror to life,” then this book fits that description very well.
“The author is a native of Marietta, Georgia, and the Atlanta Metropolitan area. She grew up in a Christian-based family—her parents, three sisters, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, and nephews and nieces. She is a retired schoolteacher with a doctorate degree in education.
“The book is seductively written to hold the attention. Her detailed descriptions make it easy for the reader to visualize the characters, the action, the scenes, and the situations in the life of the story’s main character, Angela.
“The Jagged Edge, like any work of art, also reflects, to a substantial degree, the soul of the writer/artist. Keep that in mind when you read the latest work of this delightful author.”
