Reviews for A Disobedient Girl by Ru Freeman:

“Evocative and moving. Ru Freeman is a marvelous storyteller who sees deeply into the complex layers of compassion and love, of sorrow and betrayal. An amazing first novel.” — Ursula Hegi, New York Times bestselling author of The Worst Thing I’ve Done and Stones from the River

“A thrilling debut: Ru Freeman has given us a wonderfully bold and determined protagonist in a richly drawn, complex, fascinating story. I loved it.” — Lynn Freed, author of The Servant’s Quarters

“A heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting novel that celebrates our ability to transcend tragedy.” — Rishi Reddi, author of Karma and Other Stories and winner of the L. L. Winship/PEN Awar


Ru Freeman was born into a family of writers and many boys in Colombo, Sri Lanka. After a year of informal study at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia, she arrived in the United States with a Parker ink pen and a box of Staedler pencils to attend Bates College in Maine.
