Now, Rebecca must face the future by delving into her mysterious past. Dunmore's most ambitious work to date, Mourning Ruby is a meditation on memory and history-both personal and public.

Though his flight from home traces a zigzag of evasion, he holds to the faith that he is on the right path, an invisible line toward his own salvation as straight as a ruler’s edge.
