Shortlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction 2016

@2@@20@@21@@16@@20@***SHORTLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS' WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2016***@21@@16@@20@@21@@16@@20@'LUMINOUS' @18@Guardian@19@@21@@16@@20@'STUNNING' @18@New York Times@19@@21@@20@@21@@16@@20@'EXCEPTIONAL' Uzo Aduba (@18@Orange Is The New Black@19@)@21@@16@Ephram Jennings has never forgotten the beautiful girl with the long braids running through the piney woods of Liberty, their small East Texas town. Young Ruby Bell, "the kind of pretty it hurt to look at," has suffered beyond imagining, so as soon as she can, she flees suffocating Liberty for the bright pull of 1950s New York. Ruby quickly winds her way into the ripe center of the city-the darkened piano bars and hidden alleyways of the Village-all the while hoping for a glimpse of the red hair and green eyes of her mother. When a telegram from her cousin forces her to return home, thirty-year-old Ruby finds herself reliving the devastating violence of her girlhood. With the terrifying realization that she might not be strong enough to fight her way back out again, Ruby struggles to survive her memories of the town's dark past. Meanwhile, Ephram must choose between loyalty to the sister who raised him and the chance for a life with the woman he has loved since he was a boy.@3@@2@Full of life, exquisitely written, and suffused with the pastoral beauty of the rural South, @18@Ruby@19@ is a transcendent novel of passion and courage. This wondrous page-turner rushes through the red dust and gossip of Main Street, to the pit fire where men swill bootleg outside Bloom's Juke, to Celia Jennings's kitchen, where a cake is being made, yolk by yolk, that Ephram will use to try to begin again with Ruby. Utterly transfixing, with unforgettable characters, riveting suspense, and breathtaking, luminous prose, @18@Ruby@19@ offers an unflinching portrait of man's dark acts and the promise of the redemptive power of love.@3@
