    Deftly written and emotionally powerful, Drowning Ruth is a stunning portrait of the ties that bind sisters together and the forces that tear them apart, of the dangers of keeping secrets and the explosive repercussions when they are exposed. A mesmerizing and achingly beautiful debut.

    In diesem Hörbuch begegnen sich Lyrik und Prosa, geben sich Gedichte und Minigeschichten, jene sogenannten Flash-Fictions, ein ganz besonderes, liebevolles Stelldichein. Melancholisch, heiter, besinnlich und sarkastisch kommen sie daher, immer aber drücken sie pures Lebensgefühl aus, Wünsche, Hoffnungen, Sehnsüchte aber auch Momente der Freude, der Nachdenklichkeit und Kritik. Zwei völlig verschiedene Genres und doch ergänzen sie sich in ihrer wunderbaren Vielfalt der literarischen Sprache, poetisch schön und melodisch das eine, schnörkellos und direkt das andere.

    In 1898, a woman forsakes the comfort of home and family for a love that takes her to a remote lighthouse on the wild coast of California. What she finds at the edge of the earth, hidden between the sea and the fog, will change her life irrevocably. Trudy, who can argue Kant over dinner and play a respectable portion of Mozart's Serenade in G major, has been raised to marry her childhood friend and assume a life of bourgeois comfort in Milwaukee. She knows she should be pleased, but she's restless instead, yearning for something she lacks even the vocabulary to articulate.
