In Running Out, Ruth Baines portrays two characters, one a middled-aged woman desperate to have a child, and the other a teenager desperate to not be pregnant.  Each are running out of time to face their realities.

Ruth weaves between the two characters beautifully with humour and empathy, slowly and relentlessly building tension.  Through their struggles, she brings out the cruel ironies that life has and poses difficult questions for which there are often no easy answers, or happy endings. 

This is a very powerful work, I highly recommend it.
