Product description

From the Back Cover

Before Ruby knew Alice's name, life was different.
When she arrived in New York on her 18th birthday carrying nothing but $600 cash and a stolen camera, Alice was looking for a fresh start. Now, just one month later, she is the city's latest Jane Doe, an unidentified murder victim.
Ruby Jones is also trying to start over; she travelled halfway around the world only to find herself lonelier than ever. Until she finds Alice Lee's body by the Hudson River.
From this first, devastating encounter, the two women form an unbreakable bond. Alice is sure that Ruby is the key to solving the mystery of her life - and death. And Ruby - struggling to forget what she saw that morning - finds herself unable to let Alice go. Not until she is given the ending she deserves.
Before You Knew My Name doesn't ask whodunnit. Instead, this powerful, hopeful novel asks: Who was she? And what did she leave behind? The answers might surprise you.

Book Description

Alice and Ruby were always going to meet. But it didn't need to be like this. A startling, moving and uplifting novel about two women brought together in the most extreme of circumstances. Jacqueline Bublitz is - simply - the most remarkable debut novelist and hers will be a major reading group launch for 2021. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling reading.
By Davina MacLeod on 1 November 2021
This a captivating story and it surprised me that it is the author's debut book.

It is well written, has a great storyline, believable characters and kept me reading
even when my eyes were begging for me to stop reading and go to sleep.

You will not regret buying this book, and I don't give praise lightly.
