Author Zachary Ryan has lovingly crafted a powerful story about family dynamics, pressures, and dreams that will make a superbly engrossing read for any fan of women’s fiction. For me personally, Morgan’s story was the more gripping because I really related to her sense of loss after loss and the hopelessness that engenders, but there’s also just as much care and emotion put into the narration and dialogue around Alayna’s clash between obligation and aspiration. I was also really moved by the use of Lana Del Ray’s lyrics and emotion as an inspiration basis for the characters and their shared trauma, as I am a big fan of her music anyway and it made me want to play it all again. Overall, I would certainly recommend Ride to fans of family dramas and highly atmospheric, emotive writing.
