Now Mary Monroe reveals how Mama Ruby's past haunts the family she's left behind . . .Mama Ruby has died, and Maureen Montgomery is finally taking charge of her own life. With her beautiful teenage daughter, Loretta, by her side, she returns to Florida and settles into a routine any other woman would consider bland.
