Rubies are the birthstone for July and that is when A Virtuous Ruby, my 2014 Golden Heart nominated story, will appear as an e-book publication. Those of you who are long time followers of this blog know that the “Migrations of the Heart” series represents a different kind of historical romance.
1915 – Winslow, Georgia thought shame would keep her from speaking out against lynching–they were wrong. Town troublemaker Ruby Bledsoe resolves never be quiet, loving her baby, no matter how he had come into the world. However, when she seeks help for her sick son, she doesn’t anticipate meeting a handsome stranger who offers Ruby a way to help her son and a brand new life.
Dr. Adam Morson had always felt shame as a mixed-race child–shame enough to masquerade as something that he wasn’t. However, something powerful draws him to protect the beautiful and fiery activist who shows him how to be true to himself. Some unknown force unknown compels him to offer Ruby a job in his practice up north and Ruby has to decide if she should stay and fight for the soul of her hometown, or if she should seek her own happiness with the handsome stranger.
