Every so often a voice comes along that can interpret complex, discordant, and difficult human issues with literary talent and elegance. Rhea Harmsen is one of these. "The Harvest of Reason" is not her only work. she has many yet unpublished novels and poetry, to my knowledge. I've heard her deliver glimpses of such, at public addresses. Getting to read this novel lets me know that honest discourse about meaningful human issues is being elevated to fine art. Maya Angelou, God bless her lovely soul, has nothing on Rhea Harmsen. Keep the outstanding work coming, I for one will stand in line to buy it.
