A story about our people and where we come from, told from the perspective of a brother who is different from his only sister. She loves the land and family and stays rooted there, giving of herself always -- even as she fights a deadly cancer. Her brother, who couldn't wait to get away and see the world, is a journalist. This is about coming home and learning who you are, or can be, and about things you didn't know or understand before. It's about belonging, family and community, and how much we all need that, even when we don't think so ( )

This is a story about Ruthie Lemming, as told by her brother. It's a wonderful read, exploring the family ties of living in the south, moving away from those ties and the strengths (and weaknesses) of keeping those ties strong. The theme is centered around Ruthie's significant health issues and how the family (and community) rallies to support her. In short, it's a wonderful read. Park some kleenex next to you -- you'll need them, but -- wow -- Ruthie is a strong, vibrant character and the story drags you in (willingly!). ( )

Part memoir, part tribute, Rod Dreher writes of the death of of his sister to lung cancer and going back home.

Ruthie and Rod were very different children. Rod was the bookish student who became a journalist and left home the first chance he got. Ruthie was the Methodist tomboy who married her high school sweetheart and stayed in town close to family. When they were kids, they were bitter rivals. As adults, they were civil, but not really close.

When Ruthie is diagnosed with cancer, Rod comes back often and calls home everyday. When her body succumbs, he moves close to home to care for his parents and be their for his brother-in-law and nieces.

However, he also discovered that his sister Ruthie, beloved by the town and her middle school students for her empathy for all, remained judgmental towards her brother Rod.

This is a story of an older brother, who loves his sister and regrets the chasm that remained between them until it was too late to repair. It is also a story of faith and forgiveness.

Rod Dreher writes very lovingly of his late sister, Ruthie Leming, in this memoir. Rod is the son who moved away from his small southern town and pursued writing, city life and all the excitements which go along with the fast-paced journalist lifestyle. Ruthie on the other hand, stayed behind, married and raised her family in her home town. Rod and Ruthie's personalities couldn't be more different, and they seemed to have chosen paths which corresponded to their values.
Rod undergoes many changes as he matures and eventually returns to his home town to be with Ruthie during her illness and to create roots for his own family.
Conflicts emerge quickly, and Rod describes them with grace, mercy and respect.

I very much liked his writing, his honesty and humility.
I'd like to check out his other writings now.
Great book, highly recommend.

"Because she lived in a small town, I had thought she had a small life."
A lot of things are covered in this remarkable account. A young mother suffers from cancer, and that will be tough to read. But much involves life choices. Ruthie stays at home while brother Rod chooses a different path. Which is the right one? What brings peace and value to life? Ruthie showed the great influence she had in her corner of the world. A remarkable book about life choices and the value of staying with roots and family and community. I found the religious aspect interesting - Ruthie's faith vs. Rod's constant searching. A lot of interesting things to think about. It won't be a quick book to read, but it will be worth it. ( )
