Can Beau convince Ruby she is beloved?
Can Beau convince Ruby she is beloved?
My Thoughts:A Ruby Glows is a beautiful tale of forgiveness and redemption. Ruby has all the reason in the world to be bitter and angry, yet she chooses to be kind instead. She's leery of others, men especially, but she is friendly enough and truly wants to fit in. She reminded me of a feral cat. You know how you're always trying to help them and you want to reassure them you're not going to hurt them but they look at you with wary eyes and run if you get to close? That's Ruby. She wants to be wanted and loved but her scars from her past keep her from truly trusting.
I just wanted to smack Beau! I'm sure his sister, May, felt the same way. He was so clueless as to his feelings. He was in tune to Ruby and her feelings and he went out of his way to be kind and considerate to her but he was the last to realize he had fallen in love! I love how he would do everything in his power to protect Ruby and see her happy. Beau really was a good guy and I was rooting for him to figure out his feelings and share them with Ruby.
I truly enjoyed A Ruby Glows and I hope you will too!

Greetings! I hope this isn’t your first introduction to Cutter’s Creek, but if it is, let me explain a bit about it. Cutter’s Creek is a series written by myself and three other Christian authors. Though there are numbers on each book, you don’t have to read them in order to get into the series, in fact, since each author writes in their own time period it might be somewhat confusing. Especially if you like a consecutive story. However, they are all stand-alone books and can be read in any order. If you like to read them in date order, you’ll want to read Kit Morgan’s books first, then Vivi Holt, Annie Boone, and finally mine, that will put them roughly in time order.
The Cutter’s Creek series has been a huge blessing to me. I’ve gotten to write with some wonderful authors and learned so much about writing a series together. So, out of my Cutter’s Creek books, why did I choose Ruby over Lily, Ivy, or Carol…well, I hate to play favorites, but Ruby is my favorite. She’s quiet, and her strength is surprising. She has a big trial, and some hurt to work through, but when you find the right person to help you through it, that’s a gift more precious than anything.
I hope you love Ruby as much as I do. Blessings, Kari
