Product Description

At age sixty-two, life is finally beginning for newly widowed Ruby Crenshaw. Her son is grown and gone, and after long years spent in the role of loyal wife to her charming but unfaithful husband, she’s ready to live the life she’s always dreamed of. Her resolve is firm: she’ll never make the mistake of giving her heart to another man.

The first step in Ruby’s quest for a carefree lifestyle was to create the Newport Ladies Book Club, an unlikely gathering of women who have been her haven. Now she’s ready to take her newfound independence a step further. Along with her friends from the local senior center, Ruby is jetting off on a much-needed Greece adventure. What she isn’t prepared for is Gabriel — the group’s tour guide — a native Greek and a true gentleman. His unquestionable charm is hard to resist. But resist she must — because no matter their growing attraction, Ruby is not about to fall for charming again!

Life in these books is real... and hard.

Yet lessons are learned and hearts are touched.

Friendships from the book club are what help them get through life.

Ruby is the oldest AND the one who started the book club as a way to meet new people.

Now she has expanded her friendship to the Senior Citizens Center.

As she shares her travels with this new group they decide to plan a trip to Greece.

The last time Ruby was in Greece was with her late husband.

She is anxious to go...but will it bring up the memories she is trying so hard to forget?

The trip gets even more complicated when Ruby's closed-off heart meets Gabriel, the tour guide.

Can Ruby learn to trust again?


Incredible Story, More to Ruby's Secret Than You Can Imagine

I'm a fan of Heather Moore's books and novellas. I've read almost all of them and appreciate her writing style more with each story I've read. After reading Ruby's Secret, I think that I need to visit Greece someday. I really enjoyed this story. There was so much emotion in Ruby's secret, in the life she's lived and the choices she has to make. It was interesting for me to read this novel from an older woman's perspective. Heather did a great job of infusing her character with a realistic voice and true passions for the circumstances. I also loved how the books the club read were an integral part of the plot and worked so well with the storyline. I finally pushed order on my wish list for this particular book, The War of Art by Steven Pressfield, which is one of the books read by the Newport Ladies Book Club.

Ruby's Secret is a great addition to the Newport Ladies Book Club. Ruby's story is really enjoyable. Ruby starts the Book Club and I love how she uses the books (like all the characters) to lend her perspective. The nonfiction selections selected for the book group have piqued my curiosity and I can't wait to read them.

Ruby is able to come to terms with her past and relinquish her secrets. Her evolution in character development is inspiring and causes the reader to reflect also. She is able to relate with the other ladies of the book group and reach out with support and comfort to them.

I am loving this series as the characters all have something you can relate to. The series has made me reflect on how I have moved through similar situations and conflict. It also has given me ideas of how to better support my friends and reach out to others.
