This was a pretty slow paced book. I loved the two narrators and you definitely fall in low with Ruby. She truly is A Virtuous Woman. She was abused and terribly treated. I wouldn't say she fell "in love" with Blinking Jack Stokes but he saved her and for that she loved him. Although there is a huge age gap between them, her being 20 and him being 40 it is appropriate because they fit well with each other. It's a shorter book. I would have to say it was good but it was more slow paced than I prefer.
