display_description

A "vivid, unsentimental, powerful" portrait of a Southern marriage by the New York Times–bestselling author of Ellen Foster (Publishers Weekly).

"She hasn't been dead four months and I've already eaten to the bottom of the deep freeze. I even ate the green peas. Used to I wouldn't turn my hand over for green peas . . ."

Ruby Stokes has died too young and left her husband, Blinking Jack, behind. With alternating entries from each of them, A Virtuous Woman recounts the tale of their years together in an "exquisitely realised piece of writing" (Elizabeth Buchan, The Mail on Sunday).

From their very different backgrounds—Ruby a daughter of wealth, Jack a penniless tenant farmer—to their relationships with their landlord and his family, and the strength they drew from each other in the face of hardship, this story of a marriage is "full of fantastically gritty metaphors . . . A book that will change your dreams" (The Observer).

"Gibbons again flawlessly reproduces the humor and idiom of rural eastern North Carolina." —Library Journal
