The Loves of Ruby Dee

“Her books are wise and wonderful. I loved it!”
~ Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Three men love her…but only one man can win her.

Ruby Dee D’Angelo came blowing up the dusty ranch road and into the lives and hearts of the Starr men: the failing but intractable patriarch, Hardy Starr; the youngest son, Lonnie Starr, lost in a mad whirl of rodeo and loose women; and Will Starr, eldest son holding everything together and seething with unfulfilled dreams.

When the dust settled and Will Starr got a good look at her standing beside her yellow convertible, he knew he had made one giant-sized mistake. The woman was way too young and beautiful–and too much of a woman—to be stuck out on an isolated high plains ranch with three untamed Western men. She was certainly no match for his irascible father. Will attempts to send her packing, but Ruby Dee is not a woman easily daunted. Her life has been filled with trouble, and she believes in getting through, not backing down.

As each man is touched and healed by Ruby Dee’s loving and encouraging spirit, it is Ruby Dee herself who will be healed—as she touches their souls and changes their lives forever.

In a story filled with memorable characters, touching wit, humor, and drama, Curtiss Ann Matlock takes us back to the heart of rural Oklahoma of the 1980s and into the heart and soul of a remarkable woman, and the men—and friends and neighbors—whose lives she changes for the better. This is Matlock at her very best.

“A wonderful antidote to glitz romance. Ruby Dee is so sweet, so loving, so wise, that you know she’ll get it right in the end, and you stay with her all the way to make sure she does.” —Detroit Free Press

  1. If I may add to your comment regarding the magazines (which have been very helpful to me as well), I suggest looking for a local writers guild or book club. Your local library may be able to direct you to a club. Meeting people near me, with the same interest, ideas and experiences have been most beneficial.

    • I am thankful that you have enjoyed my stories. What I can tell you is to keep writing and putting work out there. The Writer Magazine and The Writer’s Digest are two immensely helpful resources. Time and energy constraints prohibit me from connecting an any further way. If I spent time in letters and phone calls with everyone, I would never have time to write myself. Keep Writing!
