The plight of the racing greyhound is not unlike that of victims of domestic violence and rape/sexual assault. Both are victims of a lifestyle of abuse, pain, and perceived unending control.
Many of the novels by author Joyce Godwin Grubbs bring these two worlds together; not on a collision course, but on a beneficial and healing course to better their lives.
The beauty of the novels is that they are uplifting, filled with humor, Love and power. They give us a glimpse of what "could be" and "what is". But, first and foremost, they are exciting and edgy mysteries and suspense that keep the plots on a roller coaster for the reader bringing them to a breathless conclusion.
FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST
The author uses her many years of direct involvement with the intervention and resolution services for victims of both domestic violence and rape/sexual assault lifestyles.
She has fictionalized real cases she worked with in her more than forty years as an advocate for victims. Then skillfully , she wove elements of the mysteries into a series which uses the storyline to tell the story while protecting identities of victim/survivors, locations, workers and volunteers. This is all done while also involving her passion for rescuing racing greyhounds and helping the reader to see the parallels and also to embrace the endearing breed: the Greyhounds.
Big Buddy "Grubbs" and Baby Doll "Grubbs "Bird watching".
The author and her husband, rescue greyhounds and have strong relationships with the rescue and adoption programs for retired greyhound racers. They are "parents" to Big Buddy and Baby Doll and remember fondly "Dex" (pictured first) who was their heart and joy for eight and a half years.
