Ruby was conceived grudgingly by Bunty and born while her father, George, was in a hotel in Doncaster telling a woman in an emerald dress and a D-cup that he wasn't married. Bunty had never wanted to marry George, but he was all that was left. She really wanted to be someone glamorous, swept off her feet by a romantic hero and taken to America. But here she was, stuck in a flat above a pet shop in an ancient street beneath York Minster, with sensible and sardonic Patricia, aged five, greedy, cross-patch Gillian who refused to be ignored, and Ruby ... Ruby tells the story of The Family, from the day at the end of the 19th century when a travelling French photographer catches frail, beautiful Alice and her children, like flowers in amber, to the startling, witty and memorable events of Ruby's own life. This 1995 Black Swan Paperback is in Good condition.
