My Little Heart, Ruthie
Toni Jannotta, author
My Little Heart, Ruthie is an inspirational book of heartache and healing, written in limerick and rhyme and told as a fantasy. Ruthie is a heart and a classical harpist that has been emotionally wounded from abuse. Ruthie no longer wishes to go out and play due to feelings of shame and blame. Just as she is ready to break she hears the voice of the wind, a jazz trumpeter heart known as Clyde, whose friendship lifts and inspires her, showing Ruthie her true self and that she is worth more to the world than she could have ever imagined. With impressionistic illustrations by Jennifer Mones and accompanied by a jazz-inspired and narrated CD, My Little Heart, Ruthie is a book for teens and adults who need to be reminded that any abuse they have suffered was never their fault
