Ruth narrates the story of her life in a plaintive, wistful voice, telling of life in a small town with a mother who clearly prefers her brother over her, and evenutually a husband who marches to the beat of his own drum. I enjoyed this Dickins-like novel which shaped intensely human characters and built to a shocking pinnacle leaving the reader in disbelief.
