ImageOut of the Easy is my first book by Ruta Sepetys and I have been incredibly impressed so far.

Six years ago, one of the tricks lost a set of golf clubs to Willie in a poker game. She had me pawn the clubs and put her rifles and shot guns in the green leather bag. Frankie and I often joked that Willie had become an excellent golfer.” – p.106

She was so kind and generous, it made me think of the line from David Copperfield, that a loving heart was better and stronger than wisdom. I stood staring at Sweety, wondering how she had ended up at Willie’s, wishing that she could have changed her course for something better, like Forrest Hearne. – p.70
