Product Description

Ruthie Hammond had a dream. After high school graduation she was going to move from her hometown of Brewster, North Dakota to a big city--any city. Chicago, New York, Atlanta--anywhere but Brewster. Surely God had a plan for her, and it wasn't in this small, nowhere town. Twenty years later Ruthie finds herself working with her boyfriend Jack at a failing radio station in, of all places, Brewster. She'd given up on God a long time ago. If she was ever going to get out of town, she'd have to do it on her own. And now was finally the time. But when her first love, Paul Bennett, moves back to Brewster, Ruthie begins to wonder if happiness really does lie beyond the Brewster city limit sign.

Publisher's Description

Ruthie Hammond had a dream.  After high school she was moving to a big city...anywhere but Brewster.  Surely God had a plan for her, and it wasn’t in this small, nowhere town.

Twenty years later she’s back in Brewster working at a failing radio station with her boyfriend Jack.  She’s given up on God and if she wants to get out of town, she’ll have to do it solo. But when her first love, Paul, moves back, Ruthie wonders if happiness really does lie beyond this podunk town.

In this second novel in the Coming Home to Brewster series, Roxanne Henke offers another wonderful story about relationships, choices, and spiritual growth.

Author Bio

Roxanne Sayler Henke lives in rural North Dakota with her husband, Lorren and their dog, Gunner. They have two, very cool, adult daughters, Rachael and Tegan, equally-cool sons-in-law, Cory and Dave, and one delightful granddaughter, Simone. As a family they enjoy spending time at their lake cabin in northern Minnesota. Roxanne has a degree in Behavioral and Social Science from the University of Mary and for many years was a newspaper humor columnist. She has also written and recorded radio commercials, written for, and performed in, a comedy duo; and co-written school lyceums. She is the author of eight novels.

Publisher's Weekly

In her second book in the Coming Home to Brewster series, the author of After Anne offers a well-told if predictable modern parable of the biblical prodigal for evangelical Christian readers. Brewster, N.Dak., is a quaint small town that Ruthie Hammond has spent almost two decades trying to escape. Through flashbacks, the reader learns that Ruthie's longings to get away caused her to refuse a proposal years ago from her high school sweetheart, Paul Bennett. Years later, she's still in Brewster, scrabbling to keep a small radio station afloat and wondering if she'll ever find her dream. Ruthie's live-in lover, deejay Jack Warner-"the Musicman"-shares a stake in the radio station, but his penchant for gambling and alcohol jeopardizes their relationship. When Ruthie's old boyfriend, Paul, now a widower, returns to Brewster to head up the town's small bank, the ending is a foregone conclusion. As she did in After Anne, Henke uses multiple points of view, and the reader is often fed portions of the same scene more than once. The themes include some clich s (e.g., smalltown life is better than city life), and a sermon inserted at the end of the novel hammers home the prodigal child connection. There's also a strained analogy to the biblical Ruth, even to the point of having Ruthie name her first child Naomi. But the strengths of the novel are Henke's engaging voice and competent prose-a combination that makes her a CBA novelist to watch. (Jan.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    This is a wonderful book. I love Roxy's writing style. How she picks the main characters in the story and we get to hear their views, thoughts, joys and sorrows of their life. We are able to see how the Lord woos them in to His Kingdom. I'm a country girl stuck in a city, I could definitely relate to Ruth.
