Description
"Warm, energetic, and charming." — The Houston Post Mama Ruby's known for taking things that aren't rightfully hers, like her best friend's stillborn infant, who she brought back to life and christened Maureen. She's also rumored to have done away with her husband. Some fear her, others try their best to avoid her. But Mama Ruby doesn't pay them any mind. Not when she's got the one gift God gave her—her precious baby girl. "Monroe's literary canvas is painted with verve and humor and passion." — Christian Science Monitor But growing up with a mama like Ruby is enough to make any half-sane girl wish for something—anything—else. And when Maureen gets the chance to explore the "real" world, you can bet she's going to take it. . .and run like hell. "There is an electricity and vitality to this novel that makes it unique. Mary monroe is a remarkable talent." — Chicago Sun-Times
