Meet the readers from the Drowning Ruth show discussion.
"I loved this book!!! From the initial pages, the pure mystery of the drowning had me reading faster and faster. But the depth of the characters and the intense female relationships kept me flipping page after page."
"Isn't it unfortunate the secrets that families keep... People do keep secrets feeling that the truth might hurt too much, but sometimes keeping a secret does more harm than telling the truth."
"Thank you for introducing this book to me. This book enabled me to look inside my own family situations and see them from more than one angle."
"A very sad and scary book, but a book that sheds light on the responsibility of people to get involved, to take off the blinders, to care about others and realize the value of the truth and of exposing secrets."
"The book was given to me as a gift for my birthday. My husband didn't know what it was about, only that it was the new Oprah book and I didn't have it yet. Neither of us knew how it would impact me, or how it would focus the energy of my past into one manageable reality..."
