worth 4.5 stars ~ a work of literature

Ruth married young and finds out that her beloved is more attached to God and his "out there" church than her so she leaves him and hits the road. Not before he gives her $300 and buys her a car. She leaves her pathetic family too and heads on her way for a new life, not sure where she'll end up. In another small, Southern town she meets Rose, an older woman dying of lung cancer and through her, does Ruth blossom.This is a work of literature at its best. Thoroughly entertaining. Very funny in parts and sad mostly but you will find it a true craft of storytelling at its best.
