In the summer of 2008, when an E.coli outbreak forces the nation’s largest organic salad company to recall millions of products, three women’s lives converge. Stella Gonzalez, a wash- line employee, is determined to provide a better future for her daughter. Ruth Malmquist is left fighting for her son’s life and Jane Janhusen is asked to salvage the reputation of her boss and the company she loves. As federal investigators swoop in to pinpoint the source of the contamination, each woman faces her own struggle of how to deal with a sudden and unexpected tragedy.

In the spirit of E.F. Schumacher’s Small is Beautiful Morris explores the notion that bigger is better. With humor, sadness and detailed research Exit Strategy deftly weaves together multiple viewpoints of the farm-to-table movement and corporate agriculture leaving the reader to ponder the true meaning of sustainability and the value of finding work that offers basic human dignity. Ultimately, it’s a story about how life’s most challenging experiences can make us stronger, but only if we’re willing to take chances.

I loved this book. I could relate to many of the characters and found parallel in real life situations. Excellent read for anyone interested in the integrity of the food system, food safety and social justice. You won't be able to put it down.

Julie Morris’s first novel is a reader dream for it has a fast pace, deft character development, believable dialogue, carries a relevant message, suspense, and most important, provides a great story. The author is a skilled writer.

As a writer who holds an MFA in Fiction Writing, I'm not buying the one star reviews about this debut novel. Morris has created such a vivid and compelling novelscape throughout. The subject is more than timely: we're in a social period where what we eat matters more than perhaps it ever has. Deft, paced, and compelling, you'll have a hard time putting this one down.
