The Sound of Gravel: A Memoir
by Ruth Wariner



->>>DOWNLOAD BOOK The Sound of Gravel: A Memoir



A riveting, deeply affecting true story of one girl’s coming-of-age in a polygamist family.


RUTH WARINER was the thirty-ninth of her father’s forty-two children. Growing up on a farm in rural Mexico, where authorities turn a blind eye to the practices of her community, Ruth lives in a ramshackle house without indoor plumbing or electricity. At church, preachers teach that God will punish the wicked by destroying the world and that women can only ascend to Heaven by entering into polygamous marriages and giving birth to as many children as possible. After Ruth’s father—the man who had been the founding prophet of the colony—is brutally murdered by his brother in a bid for church power, her mother remarries, becoming the second wife of another faithful congregant.

In need of government assistance and supplemental income, Ruth and her siblings are carted back and forth between Mexico and the United States, where Ruth’s mother collects welfare and her stepfather works a variety of odd jobs. Ruth comes to love the time she spends in the States, realizing that perhaps the community into which she was born is not the right one for her. As she begins to doubt her family’s beliefs and question her mother’s choices, she struggles to balance her fierce love for her siblings with her determination to forge a better life for herself.

Recounted from the innocent and hopeful perspective of a child, The Sound of Gravel is the remarkable memoir of one girl’s fight for peace and love. This is an intimate, gripping tale of triumph, courage, and resilience.

As a non-fiction lover I've read quite a few memoirs and I can think of none so captivating and utterly gripping as this one(view spoiler)[Though, when she wouldn't leave Lane after he started to sexually abuse her child, I lost most of my respect for herBut rather than bring stability to the family, the marriage only seemed to exacerbate the chaosThe story she tells goes beyond 'scripture bible' lifestyle practicesThe mom in me was horrified at the depictions of life without electricity, adequate food, or appropriate adult supervisionBeautifully written, Ruth Wariner's powerful, raw memoir will touch your heart like nothing you've read beforeAfter a freak accident that killed both Kathy and one of her younger siblings, Wariner discovered that Lane was also abusing her younger, developmentally delayed brother, LukeI was given an advance reading copy in exchange for my honest review.more flag 19 likesLike see review View 1 comment 48a4f088c3
