Us Three is due to be released on 14th May 2020. The blurb is as follows: "Meet Lana, Judith and Catrin. Best friends since primary school when they swore an oath on a Curly Wurly wrapper that they would always be there for each other, come what may. After the trip of a lifetime, the three girls are closer than ever. But an unexpected turn of events shakes the foundation of their friendship to its core, leaving their future in doubt - there's simply too much to forgive, let alone forget. An innocent childhood promise they once made now seems impossible to keep..."
Talking further about the live events planned, the publishers say: "Ruth will be joined live on stage by a special guest interviewer for a far-reaching conversation, touching on the difference between writing for the small screen and a novel; the art of creating unforgettable characters, her inspirations; the many theories on the fishing trip, and beyond."
