Item Description...
Mitford meets Mayberry in the first book of the Coming Home to Ruby Prairie series. In the small town of Ruby Prairie, Texas, even the most blessed of plans can go amazingly awry. A Town Called Ruby Prairie tells the story of newly widowed Charlotte Carter, who moves to town with plans to open a foster home for troubled girls. Fiercely independent and determined to succeed on her own, Charlotte soon learns that caring for six teens is much more challenging than she expected. One crisis follows another until the quirky, good-hearted people of Ruby Prairie rally their support to keep the home open. This humorous and inspirational story celebrates the joys found in the simple things of life - faith, friends, family, and community.

Life is Always Changing  May 15, 2006
Get to know a woman who takes in six little girls with out stable homes and loves them like her own. A Town Called Ruby Prairie written by Annette Smith is a realistic fiction novel filled with interest and intrigue filled with flashbacks, realistic dialog, and visual imagery. Annette makes you feel like you are part of the story with details that apply to small town living.

Charlotte Carter is a forty-year old woman who just moved to a small town called Ruby Prairie. Since her husband died and she had no children, she decided to open up a home for girls from troubled families. Tanglewood, her home, would be the perfect place to have six girls live with her. The girls were Beth, Maggie, Donna, Nikki, Vikki, and Sharita. Friendly neighbors who were always ready to help and love that would last a lifetime were all around. The girls learn to get along, learn in school, and ask for help when ever it is needed. The only problem is some of the girls do not appreciate Tanglewood, Charlotte has trouble at first with getting a schedule and things organized, and Beth runs away causing tension. Will the girls learn to love Charlotte as a second mother? Will Charlotte find love herself in a man that she least expects to find it from? Will Beth return home or be found? In the end all of these questions are answered. The lives of these little girls will make you think yours is not so bad and to live life to its fullest.

I loved reading this book in the week that it took me to read it. It reminded me of my life living in a small town. Everyone always knows what is going on and in other people's business. Annette's writing style reminded me of Michelle Magorian's because both make you feel like you are part of the story and make it seem so real. Anyone of every age would enjoy it. I loved this story so much with all of the feelings I experienced, sadness, happiness, and fright. This book is not part of any series, but if it was I would read every book that went along with it. This book truly shows how kind of hearts some people have.
Simple Life, Warm and Delightful  Nov 18, 2004
A Town Called Ruby Prairie takes you back to the place where many would love to visit--or live. With warmth and lighthearted humor, Annette weaves a small-town America tale in Mitford style. The delightful thing is that places like Ruby Prairie
still exist--places where believable characters clash--the unselfish and the cantankerous; places where everyone knows your name--and your business--places where real problems abound, but where simple love and values can still be found. The characters are likeable--and will make you want to visit again. Grab your rocker, your hammock, or just your favorite easy chair. You're going to love this series, these characters, and this author.
so glad i read this book!  Nov 11, 2004
what a wonderful story! so simple and real - i had a hard time putting it down. very inspirational in perfectly subtle ways. i bet you will love it!!
Ruby Prairie is a Delight!  Oct 4, 2004
"A Town Called Ruby Prarie" is a delight - savor it. If you're a Mitford fan, you'll love Ruby Prarie. Parts of the book are very touching, while other parts are hilarious. I especially loved her description of a church service in a roller skating rink. I'm looking forward to the next installment!
Wonderful Storytelling  Jun 2, 2004
What a wonderful story. While this novel is similar to Jan Karon's Mitford novels, Annette Smith's storytelling reminds me more of a cross between Phillip Gulley and James Herriott (my personal favorite.) Small town life. Community. Neighbors helping one another through the ups and downs of life. I'm so glad there will be more of Ruby Prairie. I can't wait.
