This is Ruby Fae McKeever’s story told in her own words of how she came to be a 20 year old college drop-out who married the handsome son of a traveling preacher, but unfortunately ends up in a very controlling, abusive relationship.  Ruby Fae, J. W. and their daughter  are part of a traveling ministry team lead by J. W.’s father, old Rev. As they travel the country in a bus preaching and singing to the wayward souls, things aren’t going so well for Ruby and J.W. Very quickly J.W. turns abusive towards Ruby in the name of keeping his household in order. Ruby wants to go back home to the Oklahoma Red Dirt plains and her mom and dad. This is the heart breaking story of lengths she has to go to to make that happen for her and her daughter.

The only reason I have the book 4 out of 5 stars it was good writing, but there were parts of the story that lost me a couple times.  It was not quite my genre I would of picked up, but I do want to look into more from this author in the future.
