Drowning Ruth (Book Oprah Club)
reviewed on + 2 more book reviews

From the first page you know that one of the characters is dead and thus already know
that there is a sadness or family tragedy that had occurred. But the way the story is written it instantly pulls you in making you want to know how things came to be. Amanda, Ruth, Carl, and Imogene are all very strong characters. There are those I am sure that may take an almost instant dislike to Amanda but I liked her in her very flawed way. It isn't until you reach the end of the book that you realize that the story is about the strong bonds and connection of family. I have to admit that I cried when I finished the book.
