Secrets. Everything in this world comes full circle. When Ruby KingA??s mother is found murdered in their home in ChicagoA??s South Side, the police dismiss it as another act of violence in a black neighborhood. But for Ruby, it means sheA??ll be living alone with her violent father. The only person who understands the gravity of her situation is RubyA??s best friend, Layla. Their closeness is tested when LaylaA??s father, the pastor of their church, demands that Layla stay away. But what are his true motives? And what is the price for turning a blind eye? In a relentless quest to save Ruby, Layla comes to discover the murky loyalties and dark secrets tying their families together for three generations. A crucial pilgrimage through the racially divided landscape of Chicago, Saving Ruby King traces the way trauma is passed down through generations and the ways in which communities can come together to create sanctuary. Saving Ruby King is an emotional and revelatory story of race, family secrets, faith and redemption. This is an unforgettable debut novel from an exciting new voice in fiction and a powerful testament that history doesnA??t determine the present, and that the bonds of friendship can forever shape the future.
