About the author

Ruth Perkinson

7 books6 followers
Ruth Perkinson has a degree in English Education from Virginia Commonwealth University and taught both English and Creative Writing in Richmond, Virginia for many years.

She is a student of A Course in Miracles and meets with her study group each Monday night at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Glen Allen. Through her life experiences as a teacher, a spiritual seeker (and finder), and an advocate for the underdog, Perkinson has written six books: five novels and one non-fiction book. The latest is a book on spirituality called Spirit Home.

When she isn’t working part-time at St. Thomas’ Church, she is writing, dog walking or meditating on thoughts that inspire her. One dream is getting a movie made about her second book, Piper’s Someday. The story about a young girl, a dog, and the journey of a lifetime.

For more information on A Course in Miracles, please use the following address or click on the links: Foundation for Inner Peace, P.O. Box 598, Mill Valley, California 94942-0598: www.acim.org and info@acim.org.

If you purchase the newest edition, please find a study group in your area to assist you with the language of the text. It is MUCH easier this way;)

This was a tough one because pretty early on a key aspect of the story is revealed and.. it isn't good.
I read lesbian stories for the satisfying ending and I don't really like to be disappointed/heartbroken.
I did like the writing style but .. yeah... this isn't a happy place.

Ruth Perkinson brings her unforgettable characters to life. "Vera's Still Point" is a tightly woven, layered story with ecentric and endearing characters. Bittersweet and touching. It left me rooting through my memory box for Still points.
