Summary
A fiery, beautiful debut about the last days of childhood, Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Blue Sea is both heartbreaking and intoxicating.In the summer of 1963, Florine Gilham's mother disappears without a trace and Florine's childhood ends. In the years that follow, years of not knowing what happened to her mother, Florine is held fast by her father, her Grand, and her childhood friends. But nothing stays the same, even if she wants it to.'Florine and Red Ruby Heart will captivate you. I loved this book.' Favel Parrett'Deeply moving...Callan Rogers writes with a superb sense of place and period, delving deftly into true-to-life responses to unexplained loss...A realistic and resonant coming-of-age novel.'

Summary
When her mother disappears during a weekend trip, Florine Gilham's idyllic childhood is turned upside down. Until then she'd been blissfully insulated by the rhythms of family life in small town Maine. But with her mother gone, the heart falls out of Florine's life and she and her father are isolated as they struggle to manage their loss. Both sustained and challenged by the advice and expectations of her family and neighbors, Florine grows up with her spirit intact. And when her father's past comes to call, she must accept that life won't ever be the same while keeping her mother vivid in her memories
