TSU Book Club | June Pick

Monday, May 23, 2016

Hi all! By now, you probably know that I love books (you can read some reviews here) so it seemed appropriate that I would start my own virtual book club! I love reading and writing reviews for you guys but I think this could be a better, more interactive way to engage with you and the books that I'm reading.
So, for June, I want us all to read Ruby by Cynthia Bond. Here's the description from GoodReads:

Ephram Jennings has never forgotten the beautiful girl with the long braids running through the piney woods of Liberty, their small East Texas town. Young Ruby, “the kind of pretty it hurt to look at,” has suffered beyond imagining, so as soon as she can, she flees suffocating Liberty for the bright pull of 1950s New York. Ruby quickly winds her way into the ripe center of the city--the darkened piano bars and hidden alleyways of the Village--all the while hoping for a glimpse of the red hair and green eyes of her mother. When a telegram from her cousin forces her to return home, thirty-year-old Ruby Bell finds herself reliving the devastating violence of her girlhood. With the terrifying realization that she might not be strong enough to fight her way back out again, Ruby struggles to survive her memories of the town’s dark past. Meanwhile, Ephram must choose between loyalty to the sister who raised him and the chance for a life with the woman he has loved since he was a boy.

We'll be meeting back on June 30th to discuss! Happy Reading!
