Item description for Ride the Eagle by Kristina O'Donnelly...

Passions are at war in New York City Labor Union Strike When Passions Are At War With Principles! A powerful, unique novel for every woman caught between her career and principles. Caroline Keller is the first woman labor representative for the nation's largest newspaper - the "New York Mirror." She is the fastest in the fast lane, racing straight to the top. Until she finds herself bargaining not only for her employer, but also her heart.

Opponents from the outset, Caroline Keller (Management) and Lester Gordon (Labor Union's President- of Cherokee American roots) are each determined to win the battles that explode amid the electric tensions of major NYC newspapers' union/management negotiations.

Excerpt: Tensions are running high as striking workers continue to picket the NEW YORK MIRROR, the nation's largest daily newspaper. Thirty-something year old Caroline Keller, born a Southern-belle and now a tough-as-nails New Yorker gal, takes her place at the bargaining table. She's the Labor Relations Representative for the New York Mirror, and negotiations between Management and Newspaper Guild have deadlocked. Lester Gordon, the President of the Newspaper Guild, of Cherokee ancestry and renown as the champion of the underdog, is the man making sure the demands of the Guild are heard, and met. Seated at opposite sides of the table, locked in confrontation, Caroline and Lester grow more and more voluble and more and more aware of each other's presence. Both know that it is foolish to become involved with each other. Both know it can ruin their careers.

Yet neither of them can resist the flow of emotion and crescendoing passion.

Caroline and Lester are compelled to enter into a relationship surely destined for heartbreak. Caroline knows their affair can undermine her employer's confidence in her. She isn't sure she can keep her feelings for Lester apart from the issues they must resolve, and that she'll be able to maintain the integrity and detachment vital to the negotiations. Caught between her principles, loyalty to her mentor, the profession to which she has dedicated many years, and Lester Gordon, the man she loves, Caroline's final choice will have to be as defining as the Great Newspaper Strike which is dividing them with its raging flames!

Reviews - What do customers think about Ride the Eagle?

A Review of Ride the Eagle  Aug 24, 2001
A REVIEW OF RIDE THE EAGLE (Rose International) A strike in any business has a tremendous effect on lots of people, moreso when it draggs on into months. When it goes that long, union bosses and management are generally miles apart, and haggling over major issues. Such is the case at the New York Mirror where Lester Gordon, the union negotiator, and Caroline Keller, the Mirror's labor relations representative, have their respective negotiating teams at odds with each other. Kristina O'Donnelly has not only put together an excellent plot, but she has managed to write this book with great passion, preciseness and emotion. She writes so well that you can feel the tension in the conference room where union and management are locked in heated negotiations; brings out the emotional upheavals that go on in such confrontations, the anger, frustration that almost triggers violence between two of the key players, even the tension of crossing a picket line. You can even feel the tautness in Caroline's body as she slips and slides across icy sidewalks on a windy, cold, snowy night, trying to get to Lester's office to deliver a talk from the heart as negotiations are at a crucial juncture. O'Donnelly also develops a very heated, exciting, but controversial romance between Lester and Caroline, and you can feel the underlying concerns of both as they fall more deeply in love, and grow more physically attracted to each other, unaable to quell the fires that burn within. While you wonder what happens to the Mirror's strike, whether or not the shutdown of the newspaper and the intimacy between Lester and Caroline will have a bearing on their futures, she makes you wonder if their relationship will brilliantly flourish, or finally go down in flames. Kristina O'Donnelly makes you feel all the emotions involved, to want to keep reading on, anxious to get to the end for the climax, and once you're there, to keep going on and on. Ride the Eagle is an excellent, highly recommended book, a real five-star effort by Kristina O'Donnelly. Dan Murr Clocktower Books
