Publisher's Summary

The MacLeans live in a close-knit community in Glasgow at the start of the Second World War. When Ruby MacLean is 17, she falls pregnant and is forced to marry Gerry Reilly. As their daughter is born, Gerry heads off to war, leaving Ruby to cope alone. Many years later, now retired, Ruby looks back at her family history and uncovers a tale of lies that she could never have suspected....

    Story
    "Jakie and Wee Dug !!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Oh ! I would. Meg Henderson writes wonderful funny,heart warming, sad at times books and this is a winner, especially read by Barbara . fill your wine glass up snuggle down and listen...


    What other book might you compare Ruby to, and why?

    Megs other book" Finding Peggy" again a Belter !!


    Which character – as performed by Barbara Rafferty – was your favourite?

    without a doubt Ruby it has to be... but Doctor Donald came a close second..


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I don't know..


    Any additional comments?

    the family of Ruby's are a laugh, except for Big Bee , Iris the Slut, and poor old Uncle Jakie and Wee dug. you have got to listen to this even if you are not from Glasgow. the voice of Barbara Rafferty is superb a 5***** raiting . this story will stay with me for a very long time. its worth a Wee credit.. go on spoil yourself..

    I am enjoying the listener page as I find other readers recommendations very helpful and refreshingly honest prior to choosing a new book.
