About the Book

Ruby, a sweet-sixteen bride and mother, had her innocence stolen away by the love of her life. Her more experienced nineteen-year-old husband had deep-seated anger issues. In spite of his intermittent beatings, rapes, and threats, Ruby worked hard, studied, took courses, and eventually, enjoyed success by becoming a department manager in a major company. A “white knight” came into Ruby’s life. Clandestine meetings and long chats with her prince charming gave her the courage and motivation she needed to seek a better life for herself and her two children. While rummaging through some old women-in-management motivational books, Ruby realized forty years later that these books would be solutions for women in business today. She eventually understood that her abusive husband wasn’t the only male who came into her life and made unsolicited decisions about her and her career. This challenged Ruby to fight for survival at home and in the business world. But would she win?

About the Author

Ruby lived this story, though at times, she wasn’t sure she would survive. Many years later, as a successful businesswoman, she is horrified that the ways in which women are paid and abused physically and mentally have not changed very much at all since 1956, including the attitude of many males and the 72 cents women earn for every dollar earned by men in similar or less-responsible positions. Why is this accepted as normal and allowed to continue when women are the majority?
