She is also the author of the novel Where the Line Bleeds and the memoir Men We Reaped, which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and won the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize and the Media for a Just Society Award.

"Ward's text mixes moving personal anecdotes with words of inspiration... [an] exhilarating little volume."
