The Book of Ruth by Jane Hamilton
The Book of Ruth

gingersnaps15, June 7, 2007

I reread this book at least twice a year. Ruth is prtrayed as a homely dreamer who turns out to have a lot more going on than people suspected. All the characters, while not symapthetic people, are given touches of beauty where you can see how they are not all bad. The descriptions Ruth gives are marvelous, and this book turned me on to other great Jane Hamilton novels. This is one of my favorites
