Ruby

Cynthia Bond

Oprah's newest selection is Cynthia Bond's haunting, lyrical debut novel Ruby. Growing up in East Texas, Ruby was the "kind of pretty it hurt to look at." Men abused her, and women resented her. And then she fled to New York City. But a death brings her back home, where the past comes back to life. One man, Ephram Jennings, allows his love for Ruby to give him a courage he never knew he had. The result is an epic, unforgettable tale.
