Ruby´s Story: The Sisters at War Trilogy, #1

Ratings:
Length: 359 pages5 hours

Summary

War defined the three Beardsley sisters. War between the nations, and even more, war between themselves. Conflict shaped them. Defined what they were; what they were to become.

Ruby´s tale is the story of the darker side of family life; a story of conflict between sisters. A story where nothing is taboo. Nothing is forbidden.

Of all the numerous Beardsley brood, Ruby was the first to arrive, popping into the world on the first day of the 20th Century. As soon as her Father showed Ruby her picture in the local newspaper, Ruby knew that she was destined to be special.  Had been born special. Not for her the daily grind of working in Dad´s shop. She was going to be somebody. She had the looks and the brains to do it, and by hell or high water she was going to achieve what she wanted. No matter how she did it.

When she cheated death by inches at work in the dangers of the Barnbow munitions factory during the Great War, she knew she had to move on. When she married her adoring husband, Roy, and moved to London to start her own fashion empire, Ruby thought she had finally arrived. But she was wrong. There was more, so much more in store for her than she could ever know.            

A passionate affair with her sister´s husband. A revenge relationship with her other sister´s lover. The ambition of a lifetime won and lost; won by hard work and talent, only to be lost when war came into her life yet again. And yet it was also war that gave her the greatest opportunity in her life.           

Ruby´s story is her story, but it is also the dramatic roller coaster tale of how she interacts with her two sisters, Coral and Pearl, through life and love and betrayal.  The story of how, between them, the three sisters forge very different lives for themselves. Together and apart.  But always, always winning.  One way or another.

The Sisters at War Trilogy is family life; the kind of family life that makes you grateful it is not your own story. Not your family.
