Description
Twelve-year-old Ruby Clyde Henderson's life suddenly changes the day her mother's boyfriend holds up a convenience store and her mother is wrongly imprisoned for assisting with the crime. Ruby and her pet pig, Bunny, terrified and very much alone, find their way to her estranged Aunt Eleanor's home. Aunt Eleanor is a nun who lives on a peach orchard called Paradise and has turned away from their family long ago. Ruby Clyde believes that she's the only one who can find a way to help heal old wounds to save her mother and bring her family back together again. But in the end, she learns that being in a family means that everyone has to work together to support each other.
