From the lush Owen Stanley Ranges of Papua New Guinea to working class inner Sydney Ruth follows the story of its protagonist the only daughter of John and Alice Madison coffee plantation owners Set in the fifties and sixties Ruth struggles to rise above the stigma of being an unwed mother alone in a strange land Determined not to end up on the streets she Upon receiving this novel this morning and by observing the blurb i am apsolutely facinated intregued by it hence i cannot wait to start reading It appears to be a novel that it society family driven that ecompases some of the hardships that i encountered in The Help as it is set during a very difficult time of civil rights women s movements during the 1950 s After reading this novel i was completely mesmirised and overwhelmed by Marlene Lewis style writing which was apsolutely breathtaking It was a compelling and gripping story that i fell in love with immediately and a book that i am now most certain to read again It was character driven with specific characters that were distinctive and which as a reader you could realy empathise with a relate to easily especially Ruth the main character It is a heartwarming and emotional journey that is thought provoking deeply authentic to the core i was in tears in places It was a storyline that i got lost in and i enjoyed the journey of discovery being taken on Ruth s adventure and travelling at her side Family focused and full of mother son relationship that makes this story s emphasis and central focus point on friendship family and love It is something that anyone can easily relate to and connect with as in my case with the main character and is really thoughtful meaningful truth drawing It is set during a time of civilian rights and women speaking out and this is certainly a book that wants to speak out and project a message one of hope determaination perseverance and being able to look beyond the horizon I admire Marlene S Lewis so much for her tale that tells it how it is and the ups downs of life in perfect clarity that is very truthful and realistic of the times as it covers all aspects such as poverty social hierachy status within community prostitution farming This book was full of suspence and mystery and one that did not fail to shock or suprise me throughout as well as being utterly facinating interesting For those who like a book to get lost within for those who enjoy reading fiction that is based around fact and for those readers who enjoy novels such as The Help then i suggest that you read Ruth by Marlene S Lewis because it will completely suprise you
