Ruth's Redemtion: Some Thoughts

I was intrigued by the idea of a novel which centered around the lives of slaves- not my usual fare- but then again author Marlene Banks takes on this uncomfortable and ugly blemish of American history with grace, dignity and authenticity.  She tells a great story of love, and redemption in which the characters reflect the story of Ruth (loosely) but in a refreshing way.

Ms. Banks knows her history and tells a wonderful story.  So I just thought I'd say so.

Good job Moody publishers.  :)

My earlier post gives more information.  Read the first chapter!! :)
