Author Edie Johnson has completed her new book “Lady Rags”: a thrilling narrative about a man who is captivated by a mysterious bag lady.

Johnson writes, “‘Lady Rags’ takes place in Grayport, a moderate-size town on the coast of Western Washington. Gil Hayworth owns and operates a drugstore where he is the pharmacist. He has a wife, Pam, and three children, Boyd, Tim, and Traci, all in their teens.

On a rather rainy morning, on his way to work, Gil sees an unusual sight for Grayport—a bag lady. Yes, there are transient people in town, but until now, there hasn’t been a bag lady. And since she has only been seen recently, Gil’s curiosity is whetted: Why in the world would she pick the soggy Pacific Northwest and particularly Grayport to make her home?

His family is none too thrilled with Gil’s interest in the old bag lady because they’re having problems of their own and can’t seem to get along anymore. Gil loves his family and wants everyone to understand his interest in Lady Rags.

Gil finds out that Lady Rags came to Grayport with Duke, who works in the kitchen at the Union Gospel Mission. He learns from Duke that Mollie came with him from Missouri; she can’t talk, and at some point in her life, someone had tried to kill her. Lady Rags remembers none of it. She refuses to go to the Mission or Salvation Army for help, so she lives in the Grand Hotel that has been vacant for years and is very unpleasant.

Gil is determined to find her family. Through his friend, Harv, at the local newspaper, he discovers who the bag lady might be. If she went missing from some place in Missouri forty-plus years ago, someone must be wondering what happened to her.”

Published by Page Publishing, Edie Johnson’s book shares the captivating tale that follows the happenstances between a man consumed by an unnerving fascination.

Readers who wish to experience this eventful work can purchase “Lady Rags” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
