Like Anna, she studied abroad at Oxford, and much of her story comes directly from Ruths journal. Ruth graduated from King with a BA in Music and Theatre, and Honors in Independent Study in English; she received a Master of Fine Arts in Acting from the University of Georgia. She dreams of living in England and finding some job that will allow her to write, sing, act, dance, direct, and teach all at once.

From the Old English, I believe, meaning 'boundary gate.'" So goes Eddie Mitchell's initial assessment of Anna Merritt, an American student newly arrived in Oxford. And Anna lives up to her name, as if her purpose had been encoded into her DNA. It is such telling detail that Ruth Crews weaves so masterfully into this her first novel.
This is a fine book, mature in its writing and thought, with sharp dialog, delightful and interesting characters, a keen eye and ear for place. Please allow Ms Crews to lead you through the streets and buildings and sometimes darker places of Oxford and Europe. She is a terrific guide.

anduin815 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful storyFebruary 10, 2011anduin81Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a beautiful story with adventure, mystery, real, honest friendships, and underlying truths about our lives in Christ. The characters are well-developed and true - they do not always do what a "character" should, but respond as real, flesh-and-blood human beings do. Crews subtly touches upon the truths of God's calling and our greater purpose without being heavy-handed. It is a wonderful first novel, and I will be thrilled to read the subsequent two books in the trilogy.
