Saving Ruby King

Saving Ruby King is a slow burn—a richly woven three-generation history of two families on the south side of Chicago, bound forever by trauma and religion.  A tragic murder in the present unearths secret wrongdoings of the past.  Intergenerational trauma is a primary focus, and the given circumstances allow readers to both hate and empathize with nearly all of the main characters.  The full cast—including the omniscient church building—narrates the audiobook beautifully.  Readers will learn that the bonds of true friendship can withstand anything.
