Ruby's world is a maelstrom of religious fanaticism, familial abuse and enforced social isolation. Her rescuers come from deep within before she is even able to walk. They dance, they sparkle, they show her the realities of the body-mind-spirit connection. Ultimately, they help her escape the hell into which she has been born.
This first novel in a series based on the life of Ruby takes us from her birth to her escape from a deeply flawed family at the age of 18. She challenges her abusive father, her enabling mother and the Church hierarchy, even as she fears the violent repercussions that befall any and all who dare to be different.
Told in a simple, but deeply narrative style, My Name Is Ruby is a most engaging tale.
