Title Southern Ruby [BK]
This is a generational saga with forbidden love, family secrets and a twist of fate. In New Orleans, the city of genteel old houses and ancient oak trees covered in Spanish moss, of seductive night life, of Creole culture, voodoo and jazz, two women separated by time and tragedy will find each other at last. Amanda, orphaned as a child and suffering the loss of her beloved grandmother, has left Sydney in search of a family she never knew. Ruby, constrained by the expectations of society and class, is carrying a lifetime of secrets. Amanda's arrival sparks revelations long buried: a double life, a forbidden love, and a loss that cannot be forgotten. This is a sweeping story of love, passion, family and honour. Alternating in time between the 1950s and the eve of Hurricane Katrina, it is also a tribute to a city heady with mystery, music, and superstition, which has borne the tumults of race and class and the fury of nature, but has never given up hope. This is an unforgettable novel with intrigue, passion, betrayal, all the ingredients for a must-read novel. This is a passionate and powerful family saga filled with glamour, heartbreak, drama and suspense.
