In this manner, how many pages are in the book Ashes?

This all sounds perilously close to high-mindedness, so maybe now is the time to add that “Ashes” is a thumping good read. A rattlesnake pops up at the end of the first chapter, and over the ensuing 250-plus pages, the story's pulse rarely slackens.

What happened to Ruth in the book chains?

Although the novel ends before the reader discovers whether Isabel is successful in her plan to save Ruth, it is clear that Isabel's plan having escaped is to walk to Charleston from across the river and try and find Ruth there in order to rescue her. The precise fate of Ruth therefore is left open in the novel.
