March comes in with a book pick

 I know that March is still a bit away, but I simply could not wait to share this book with you.  


Ruth had a grand life in Chicago, America was on the brink of Barack Obama becoming the 44th President, and Xavier, her husband, wants a baby and possibly a career like Barack.    A life that is vastly different from where Ruth grew up. Ganton was a town full of depression, racial injustice, and unemployment.  Ruth loved her family, but she wanted out.  

Ruth went to Yale, landed a great job as an engineer, and a good husband, but she has a secret she has told no one and it is time to make amends. Ruth had a child in her youth.  A child she has not seen since the day it was born.  She doesn't even know what happened to the child.   To move on, Ruth must go back to Ganton and face her past.  


I loved this book for the first moment I read the first paragraph.  So much so that I have been excited all weekend to tell you all about this debut novel by Nancy Johnson.  Like Obama's motto, this book is full of HOPE.
