Synopsis
'At the close of World War I, Amanda retreats from her nursing job to her family's farm on a lake in rural Wisconsin. She is hoping life with her sister, Mattie, and her three-year-old niece, Ruth, will become a refuge. Very soon Amanda comes to realize that she has carried her troubles with her' (Amazon)

Drowning Ruth is a suspenseful and complex psychological thriller that explores the consequences of suppressing a tragic event from the past. A good read.

Passed to fellow bookcrosser nyassa when we met up for lunch yesterday! (It was very nice to finally meet a fellow bookcrosser).

I've just realised I hadn't made a journal entry for this. It looks like one I will really enjoy so I'm moving it well up my TBR pile.

Thanks Lady Mondegreen

Brought this book over to France and have realised I didn't ever journal it. I've actusally re-read it now which is not something I often do!

I very much enjoyed it, a very dark and compelling story which keeps you turning the pages right to the end.

This is not a book I particularly enjoyed. The plot is somewhat predictable and I didn't find the characters either likeable or interesting. With the exception of Ruth, maybe. It was an easy read, one I would recommend to certain people but not to everyone at large.
