Summary
In 1950, a core group of nine old families leaves the increasingly corrupted African American community of Haven, Oklahoma, to found in that same state a new, purer community they call Ruby. But in the early 1970s, the outside world begins to intrude on Ruby's isolation, forcing a tragic confrontation. It's about this time, too, that the first of five damaged women finds solace in a decrepit former convent near Ruby... The individual stories of both the women and the townspeople reveal Morrison at her best
