If there’s a crisis, Ruth bakes a cake; if there’s a reason to celebrate, she bakes a cake. Ruth sees it as an outward manifestation of an inner need to nurture her family – which is a good thing, because her family is rapidly expanding. First, her mother moves in after robbers kick in her front door in broad daylight. Then the father she hardly knows shatters both wrists and, having nowhere else to go, moves in with Ruth’s family. Her parents hate each other with the poisonous emotion reserved for life-long enemies. Add to this mix two teenagers, a gainfully employed husband who is suddenly without a job, and you’ve got a delightful concoction that comes with its own delicious icing.
