    "Excellent follow-up to Mama Ruby"
    Where does The Upper Room rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    #3


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Upper Room?

    Ruby stealing Maureen.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Maureen finally being free!


    If you could take any character from The Upper Room out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take Maureen to dinner just to give her a sense of independence and normalcy from Mama Ruby.


    Any additional comments?

    I really hate that Mama Ruby turned out to be such a deadly character compared to her beginings as Ruby Jean in "Mama Ruby"!
