A Virtuous Woman
-Kaye Gibbons


When Blinking Jack Stokes met Ruby Pitt Woodrow, she was twenty and he was forty. She was the carefully raised daughter of Carolina gentry and he was a skinny tenant who had never owned anything in his life. She was newly widowed after a disastrous marriage to a brutal drifter. He had never asked a woman to do more than help him hitch a mule. They didn't fall in love so much as they simply found each other and held on for dear life. A multilayered, compelling story of how two seemingly ill-matched people meet and somehow, miraculously make a marriage.

Review this book



This book was okay. I thought it was a good storyline but it was a little dull and at the last part of the book it came to my realization that these characters were African American! But overall it was okay. Nothing much more to say about this novel. It really didnít spark my attention.
