Format: Paperback
There are many jewels to be found in the novel, "Ruby".

Ruby, who is the female aspect of God, helps the characters resolve their relationship issues by helping them see the root causes of their problems. It is filled with insight and wisdom.

I loved the characters. The story takes you away and it is as if you are right there watching all the events unfold.

The ending gave me chills...truth bumps.

Absolutely Brilliant. Excellent.

I recommend ALL books by Mary Summer Rain.

Format: Paperback
This book, while disarmingly simple in it's premise and style, contains a compassion and grace, that is genuine. It is a welcome return for those of us who have come to be used to the prolific offerings of Mary Summer Rain, only to have her suddenly take a sabbatical. It was an exciting prospect for her to return with a novel, only her second, and I was far from dissappointed. She simultaneously perceives life through the innocent eyes of a child, and the learned eyes of a sage, and the confluence of that sight transmits so nicely into this story of a deeply personal spiritual nature. It is well written, with great thought, and is imbued with integrity and charm from its beginning to its conclusion.

I found "Ruby" to be a wonderful tale of discovery, adventure and healing. It is like a mixture of "DaVinci Code", "Joan of Arcadia", and No-Eyes all rolled into one.

She has a wonderful way of touching you on a soul level and stirring up questions in yourself. As always she has a special talent for describing scenes and surroundings perfectly. This novel is no exception. I hope that those who read it will have an open mind and take a look at life events in a new way. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
From the moment the story begins, the reader is held in Mary's tightly woven web of drama, intrigue and spiritual insights. Her use of descriptive writing paints vivid and realistic images of scenery utilizing all the senses. From the quaint, picturesque town in Maine to the busy bustle of Chicago, images come alive with emotion and depth. The reader is pulled into the lives of the characters as the story's mystery unfolds.

In Mary's usual fashion, she carries the reader into the lives of characters who mirror to us our own inner questions and feelings as they journey in their search for truth. Sometimes the truth is right under our nose - or found while sitting on a park bench. Sometimes the truth lies in a child's laughter- or in the back alley-way. Mary's characters touch the hearts of all, and reflect the passion and love within all of us.

Within this book, there is never a dull moment and never a moment where hope is not found.

"Ruby" will touch your heart and soul and open your eyes to an even greater depth of spiritual knowingness. Second best to reading this book would be to see it played out in a movie!

This book is filled with humor, spiritual insights, compassion and truth. I have read all of Mary's books, and this one is, without a doubt, the best one yet! Thank you Mary for giving us one more piece of the puzzle of life!

It was a joy to read and once I started I couldn't put it down. I was amazed as to how fast I was grabbing for the next page. No matter what stage the character Sadie was in her adventure the reader is always wondering what will come next. I laughed and cried with her.

Mary Summer Rain has again produced a story that will entertain, enlighten and uplift many readers from all stages of age and interests. She was able to impart many of her lessons of spirituality that she has written about over the years in a way that entertains the reader.

Format: Paperback
I've been reading MSR's books from almost the beginning, so when I learned she was switching from non-fiction writing to fiction, I was excited at the prospect, because I had read The Seventh Mesa and thought it was outstanding.

Suffice it to say, my expectations were high because I do have a long history, and I've often read many of the other sources that MSR discusses in her Q&A books and autobiographies.

I felt Ruby was written for the initiate not for someone seeking a peek into the inner mysteries. MSR has hinted a lot in her non-fictional writings about all that she knows. I was hoping she'd fill us in.

Ruby is written in a highly descriptive style, one that I admire and appreciate. I felt like I was there with the characters watching the scenes as if I were watching a movie. The simply message of the book is one that can never be told enough, never gets old. So even though I was wanting something more, slightly different, I've recommended this book to many people with the hopes that it will pique their curiosity to explore the non-fictional offerings MSR has written.

Format: Paperback
I found this novel by Mary Summer Rain to be in congruence with the flavor of her other books that extrapolate the truth of who we truly are. The story line is an easy read, with poignant emotion and a beautiful parable to behold the mystery in sync with an inter-related spirit to human connection of our lives. I feel anyone reading will find a reflection of themselves. For anyone on a spiritual journey, an intrinsic design unfolds the mystery of just how powerfully magic love masterfully exposes miracles.
