Finding Ruth: A Daughter’s Quest to Discover Her Mother’s Past

by Cynthia Hamilton

A WRITER TURNS DETECTIVE TO LEARN WHAT HER MOTHER’S LIFE HAD BEEN LIKE BEFORE ALZHEIMER’S STOLE HER MEMORIES. A TRUE STORY OF FORGIVENESS AND HEALING.

As fiercely independent Ruth struggles to stay self-reliant at the age of 86, each day brings her closer to an event that will alter her life forever. While her author daughter shifts through Ruth’s possessions prior to her move into a skilled nursing facility, she discovers a previously unseen photo from 1949 and realizes how little she knows of her mother’s life.

As Alzheimer’s continues to warp Ruth’s once sharp mind, she can no longer shed any light on the past. Yearning to know who her mother was as a person in her own right, the author painstakingly reconstructs Ruth’s life from photos, letters, public records and firsthand memories.

What emerges is a portrait of a bright, beautiful woman who is propelled through decades of broken promises and heartache, bouncing from one ill-fated relationship to the next, but always staying strong, always surviving. Through a timeline going back sixty years, the author gleans a much better understanding of the woman she had known only as Mom.

Missing Girls: AN ANTHOLOGY OF TRUE CRIME

by Andrea Torrence

AN ANTHOLOGY OF TRUE CRIME
THE DISAPPEARANCE OF MAURA MURRAY
The case of Maura Murray’s disappearance is one that has left police and conspiracy theorists baffled for more than a decade. Her sudden disappearance is one that makes very little sense and the available information regarding who she is as a person and her motive behind her attempt to leave town prior to vanishing isn’t easy to wrap our brains around.
Maura has been missing since February 9, 2004. From the time of her disappearance, there have been no credible sightings of Maura. The last person to see her alive, a passing motorist, noticed her oddly calm demeanor following a car crash, but she was gone by the time the police arrived on the scene.
Her family is devastated that they haven’t gotten closure, but is also skeptical that she could still be alive. Laurie and Fred, Maura’s mother and father, have had nothing to add regarding their daughter’s disappearance, and have no idea what thought pushed her into taking some personal belongings, withdrawing over $200 in cash, and attempting to leave town under the guise of “grieving over a death in the family.”
To get an understanding of the case, it’s important to understand who Maura is, what she did and said in the days prior to her disappearance, and her strange behavior moments before vanishing into thin air.
BETHANY DECKER – Nothing about Bethany seemed out of the ordinary…Until she disappeared
JOYCE CHIANG – Joyce was an American attorney who worked for the Immigration and Naturalization Service. She had been missing for three months, and now, her badly decomposed body was being dragged from the Potomac River.
JODI HUISENTRUIT – Jodi Sue Huisentruit was a news anchor for KIMT, a station based in Mason City, Iowa. On June 27th, 1995, she called the station and told her co-worker that she was on her way to work after she overslept. It would be the last time anyone heard from her.
PATRICIA MEEHAN – The story of Patricia Meehan is a very strange and puzzling one. She seemingly disappeared into the night with little reason. The case has remained unsolved since 1989. With few witnesses, the full events are sketchy at best.
KELSIE SCHELLING – The disappearance of Kelsie Schelling is one of the biggest mysteries in Colorado. This young pregnant woman was last seen in February of 2013 and the case is still open to this day.
NATALIE HOLLOWAY – The vacationing teen disappeared in Aruba and has not been seen since.
JENNIFER KESSE – A beautiful Florida woman who disappeared in the parking lot of her apartment building.
