About Ruth Macklin

I'm have worked hard and struggled most of my life. I write short stories, novels, poetry and dabble in scripts. I have four living children, three daughter and a son. They are all grown with families of their own. With the passing of my mother a couple of years ago I'm concentrating on my writing, blogging and my niche website that sells chocolates. Writing is the thing, which kept me sane through all the hassles. Plus the company of the many "Ghosts" who have taken up residence with me. Sometime they want me to write when I want to sleep. Writing also helps keep my mind off of all the pain in my muscles, and joints. When each story ends, I fell as though another child has left home.

Review by: Carolyn Hackett on Oct. 23, 2011 :
Enjoyed this book. You come to respect the resilience of the author and how this book has been therapeutic for her in the writing. Often you feel frustrated for what she endured but you must remember that it describes a time now gone with different values and a different code of conduct. I would have liked to have found out what happened to some of the other characters in the book eg Ruth's son. However, the book is well worth a read.
