“Where is your bookmark?”
My bookmark is in the novel, “Ruby” by Cynthia Bond. Ephram Jennings was born, raised, and lives in a small town, where every knows each other’s business like it is theirs. Ruby, the title character, is the love of Ephram’s life, the woman he has known his whole life. Ruby leaves their town for New York City to escape the drags of small town life and escape from longing. Ephram on the other hand finds himself in a place where he must choose between his sister who raised him and Ruby.
The words have an incredible flow, illuminating the thoughts and intention of the plot. Setting is rooted well on the page to expand the character’s lives. I am looking forward to how the story unfolds and layers.
