Synopsis

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday by Donna Hay

A warm, funny and touching novel about love and family, forgiveness and coming to terms with the past.

Ruby Tuesday Moon grew up hating everything about her life. It wasn't just her daft name and hand-me-down clothes; she hated being the daughter of Normanford's only single parent, failed nightclub singer and resident goodtime girl, Sadie Moon who regularly turned up at parents evening dressed like Shirley Bassey. As soon as possible, Ruby bought a one-way ticket to London, changed her name and escaped for ever - or so she thought.

But nearly twenty years on, fate has conspired to send Roo Hennessey, now a successful management consultant, back to Normanford. Back to the friends and family she once knew too well, and the boy who broke her heart. And back to the infamous Sadie, now in her 50s and still acting like a teenager. But as Roo discovers, there are two sides to every story. Perhaps the past is not exactly as she remembers it ...

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!
