The story of Ruth offers an aeticulate and intriguing story of the time period directly following WWII. Ruth is an early baby boomer, born to a former Canadian soldier and a British bride. Through Ruth's point of view, the reader understands the shame both parents carry with their secrets that divide them. We also experience childhood and puberty through the eyes of a girl vastly different from her peers and the shame of her status and stature.

The book is small, short and succinct. Easy to read but one I will probably forget.
