What is a family? Can you escape the things that connect you to yours? That’s what Ruby Reynolds wants to know in … FEAR OF DRIVING
Throughout Ruby’s childhood her mother dragged her clear across the country and back, starting their life over and over again, without ever telling Ruby who her father was and what exactly they were running from. When she was old enough, Ruby moved to New York City and promised herself she’d stay put, at a comfortable distance from her Momma…and the moving vehicles Ruby learned to hate. But now Ruby’s met someone she wants to marry, someone with whom she hopes to create the kind of normal life she’s always wanted. The problem is, when she leaves city life behind her worst fears are stirred up. She has to learn to drive, though this symbolizes so many frightening possibilities about her family history, and she has to learn to make peace with who she really is. But as Ruby blossoms into life, both on the road and in her heart, creating a “family” of her own along the way, can she ever truly come to terms with herself?
