    • Abstract:
      Summary: Worn out from nursing soldiers at a Milwaukee hospital and struggling to recover from a traumatic love affair, Amanda Starkey returns to her family's rural Wisconsin farm to stay with her beloved sister, Mattie, and a young niece, Ruth. An Oprah Book Club selection and bestseller in hardcover, Drowning Ruth, now in paperback, is a stunning portrait of the ties that bind sisters together and the forces that tear them apart. Schwarz's first novel explores themes of family love, sibling rivalry, duty, loyalty, and a possible murder.

LJ Reviews 2004 August #1

Secrets unspoken for years crowd the pages of Christina Schwarz's DROWNING RUTH (Ballantine. 2001. ISBN 0-345-43910-4. pap. $14). In 1919, after nursing wounded soldiers, an exhausted Amanda comes to live with her sister Mathilda and niece Ruth at Nagawaukee Lake. Tragedy ensues, and Amanda becomes Ruth's caretaker. Expertly weaving the storytelling among various voices, this debut is a wonderful novel about repressed memories and lost chances. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
