In a journey stretching from the TB sanatoriums of the 1940s to the AIDS hospital wings of the 1990s,
Throwing Rubies is the story of Margaret, a retired bank officer and new volunteer, who's assigned to Jeffrey, a gay man with AIDS-related tuberculosis. Separated by the worlds they inhabit, Margaret and Jeffrey are
drawn together by the disease Margaret survived and Jeffrey battles. Their unlikely friendship bolsters Jeffrey's struggle and allows Margaret to face a buried past of forbidden love and loss.
