It is always a great feeling when you make progress on a novel. So I thought I’d share that feeling. Here’s the synopsis for Moral Courage, a novel I’ve been writing for many years (along with my other five novels). And it’s very close. I’m including the mind map (love those aps) I’m now using to keep track of my process.
Synopsis- Moral Courage
By Rhea Harmsen
East meets West in this story of two quintessential twenty first century women. The American: Debbie Armbruster, a Special Ops captain of a platoon of buff, cocky, fire eating Rangers infiltrating Afghanistan in the dead of night. She’s razor sharp, confident and stoic. The mission: Long Range Recon operations in a war intended to bring down the Taliban by air power alone. The Afghan: Fataneh, a village girl living in the dark ages but determined to win her freedom and her country’s liberation. They are thrown together in a time of great danger and crisis. Complicate matters by introducing Shawn McNeil, second in command—a scrumptious, oh baby please save me, modern chauvinist. A former football hero, now a tough, disciplined lieutenant whose heart’s in trouble. Immersed in horrible atrocities, friendly fire and collateral damage, they must forge a bond that tests their leadership, reveals their moral courage, and allows them to survive.
