Strong story, Hamilton's first novel. This is the tale of Ruth, caught in an unhappy triumirate of her mother May, and in her early life brother Matt, then husband Ruby. All else is peripheral as Ruth tries to figure out how to live without the meaness all people have inside from spilling out. Eventually it comes down to understanding and forgiveness, Or the meaning of Ruth: compassion.

Fly far little book!
