about this book

An Oprah's Book Club selection, this is the story of Blinking Jack Stokes and Ruby Pitt Woodrow--Jack, forty years old, Ruby, twenty--and their desperate half-loving, half-needing relationship. In A Virtuous Woman Gibbons transcends the early promise of her first novel, Ellen Foster by creating a multilayered and indelibly convincing portrait of two seemingly ill-matched people who somehow make a marriage.
