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.
Ruby Prairie: 2,000 people, five churches, a championship girl's basketball team, an Asian American bluegrass singer, and widowed newcomer Charlotte Carter. Locals know the Round-the-Clock Cafe closes at 8:00 p.m., but they don't know if Charlotte's "Heavenly Home for Girls" fits their quiet Texas town. Will they grow? Can Charlotte go it alone?
