Fiction • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Lorna Raver brings to life Wallace’s depiction of the 1920s, filled with details of baseball, bootleg liquor, corruption, and flashy entertainment. Amid all the scandal and glamour, Ruby stands out as the true star of the show. Raver’s full voice matches Ruby’s deep and determined speech as well as the intonations of the shadier characters Ruby must outwit. Ruby seeks to provide for her two nieces by showing off her baseball pitch, fast by any major league standard, at a Coney Island attraction. Raver’s well-paced narration will have listeners cheering for Ruby to succeed. No love of baseball is required to enjoy this story of the great Diamond Ruby.
