Created her own unorthodox but tender family Then this hopeful life is dealt a blow that could shatter even the strongest of ties Now Rebecca must face the future by delving into her mysterious past.

    On the back cover of Mourning Ruby it says “Like a Russian doll this novel opens to reveal a brilliant richness of stories locked within” Unfortunately the stories simply don’t hang together Although I did believe in Rebecca’s grief

    Mourning Ruby is or less about a mother who is grieving the tragic loss of her five year old daughter But the or less part cannot be overlooked If it weren't for the title and the ominous cover picture featuring a little girl skipping in the leaves in a red dress the reader would have no idea what this book is about for uite some time It beg
