Although this was a quick read for me it some how felt slow, sluggish to me. I was surprised to find out halfway through that the setting was 1977, it seemed so much older to me, maybe late 40's or 50's. But the main character Ruth, she was so complicated to me. Sometimes I just wanted to shake her....ugh girl, wake up! What are you doing? But in the end I saw how fragile she was, how the love within her was crushed and yet she still carried on.
