Saving Ruth: A Novel


About the Book

When Ruth Wasserman comes home to Alabama for the summer after her first year away at a "Yankee" college, a tragedy pushes her to uncover family truths and take a good look at the woman she wants to become. A wonderful coming-of-age novel from Zoe Fishman, author of Balancing Acts, Saving Ruth tells the story of a fish-out-of-water young Jewish woman, returning to her Alabama hometown after a semester at a "Yankee college," only to discover that life-and she, herself-haven"t really changed in the ways she"d hoped. Southern fiction with a pungent twist, Saving Ruth is a wonderfully evocative, delightfully engaging tale that, nonetheless, seriously addresses provocative issues like anorexia, family dynamics, and the racial and ethnic tensions of the Deep South.
