Eye Opening/Inspirational

I chose this book not fully knowing what to expect but hoping to learn/expose myself to a way of life I hadn’t heard much of before.

Not only did this book expand my horizons but it was extremely inspirational. It really puts things into perspective and makes you reevaluate what is truly important in life. Because of Ruth’s amazing writing I felt like I was living through the pain, horror and success with her and her family.

Thank you for sharing your story! I am so happy that *spoiler alert* you and your family have been safe for upwards of 20 years. You deserve every ounce of success, praise and joy you are/will receive and just know your courage is enlightening and inspiring people all over.
