Before Herring Cove Road : Ruth Goldman and the Nincompoop
by Michael Kroft


Overview -

The prequel to the Herring Cove Road (Not-So-Nuclear Family Saga) series.

With her mother's death two years before, her father's recent marriage to a woman she doesn't get along with, and then finding herself engaged to a man she isn't even sure she loves, Ruth decides to take a year away from home to discover what she wants in life. So with a small savings, the support from her much older and lifelong best friend (her family's servant, ) and little knowledge of the common world, she sets off for Cambridge, England, where she will meet some 'different' characters, learn what life is like for a single, independent working woman during the depression and befriend a young man who makes up for his lack of looks with his wit, amusing idiosyncrasies and his love for practical jokes.

On her adventure of self-discovery, Ruth will find more than she ever expected. Unbeknownst to her, a secret hides within her family that will eventually enlighten her to herself, to her past, and permanently change the direction of her future.

ABOUT THE SERIES

Taking place in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the series follows the sometimes amusing, sometimes heartbreaking and sometimes terrifying events that follow an introverted old Jewish man's retirement as he reluctantly befriends a young and struggling single mother, her naive and lonely son, and lastly, a boy streetwise beyond his years.

​"I don't usually enjoy books in a series but this was an exception. It was uplifting, and interesting with some twists I didn't see coming...It wasn't all sweet and goody two shoes either. It had some dark and realistic moments and characters. Very well written." -(Amazon Customer)
