At first I enjoyed this book...and then it dragged on and on! I ended up skipping ahead looking for something to change but it never did. Boring!
Ruth is true grit -- a child woman of the American Midwest whose relationship with her family and friends shines with pathos and humour. Her gentle yet resilient spirit enables her to bear deep emotional pain and still have the gumption to look ahead.
While I enjoyed this story and the writing skills of the author, I had a hard time with the brutality and emotional sadness. The cruel life she had to life made me very depressed. I wouldn't suggest reading this book in the winter when it's already hard to be cheerful.
The twist at the end of this book was so sad and unexpected. I was shocked!! The main character, Ruth, always seems to be on the edge of hard times but is a strong willed and compassionate person. What happens in the end seems so wrong to happen to her yet she still is able to put forth a positive attitude. A great read, I definitely recommend it!
