Mourning Ruby

About thirty years ago a mother laid her newborn baby in a shoebox and left it in the backyard of an Italian restaurant Now the baby Rebecca is a mother herself A child of no one and nowhere she has. The first part of this book had me so gripped I couldn t sleep as former abandoned child Rebecca and her husband Adam mourned the loss of their only daughter But part way through it became a thoroughly weak tale written by Rebecca s friend Joe from where it descended rapidly into cliche and plot twists heralded from a mile off At one point Dun so lost interest in telling the rest of Joe s plucky prostitute in love with doomed WW1 airman story she continued it as notes The best part of the tale is that of Rebecca s boss a showman turned hotelier but it is treated as a throw away in order to get back to Joe By the end I was only continuing to see if the grizzly bears surrounding his writing retreat in Vancouver had got hungry enough to do all disgruntled readers a favour Best avoided The Numbers Game restaurant Now the baby Rebecca is a mother herself A child of no one and nowhere she has.

summary ß eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Helen Dunmore

Dun's most ambitious work to date Mourning Ruby is a meditation on memory and history both personal and public It's an unforgettable tale of love loss and the transcendent power of storytelling itsel. I didn t really enjoy this book The first section was the better bit although as the mother of children around Ruby s age I found it very hard to read and I did cry uite a bit But then it went into Joe s story that he was writing and it lost its way I m sure there was supposed to be a connection but to be honest I got to the stage where I just wanted to get it read and move on so I didn t spend to long trying to make those connectionsIt felt like a muddled book with too many ideas

    At first I really enjoyed this book Dun's writing style is beautiful However there just seem to be so many storylines packed into uite a short book and I ended up feeling disappointed by the end as none of them seemed to come to any sort of ending It felt too fragmented for me and I ended up feeling a little confused as the book went from one storyline to another without giving you time to really 'fall in love

    This book describes the agony of a parent losing a child of grief and not letting go In Western cultures we'd grieve and then tell another person to get on with it if the grieving is prolonged An Asian person would be able to understa

    I do not know if I can express how personal this book felt to me If readers are looking for a novel with a tidy narrative arch this is not that book MOURNING RUBY by Helen Dun 2004 does not provide the tidy happy or sad ending The real world is messy and interwoven and stunningly beautiful It crushes you and forces you to look at events you wished had never happened it catches you up in longing and joy and throws you

    Mourning Ruby is or less about a mother who is grieving the tragic loss of her five year old daughter But the or less part cannot be overlooked If it weren't for the title and the ominous cover picture featuring a little gir
