Bought the book a year ago from Avon and didn't get around to reading it until last night. Read the whole thing through at once! Couldn't put it down! I'm from Southern Indiana and just happens 'Ruby and the Rain Crow' was my daughter's neighbor for years. In fact, I've even been in her front room visiting. A wonderful Christian woman, through and through! The whole book felt like Philip was talking about my favorite people, or warm, old relatives. I was raised by grandparents and the language and references felt so familiar and heart-tugging. Loved the way he wove the people and old values into little-country-church-beliefs I was raised with; just plain 'down-home feelings' arose again. Couldn't wait to call my kids and Hoosier relatives about it this morning and am trying to get more copies of the book now to send them. Really regret not getting around to reading this sooner!!! The common sense shared is almost non-existant today. Makes me want to go back and swing high in Old Saul & Emma's front porch swing, kick up my heels, and float with eyes shut, drowning in the aroma of their pink climbing tearose bush, while carressing my hollyhock dolls. Man, what a book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
