Amazing story of perseverance

I was unaware that this was a true story until I got into the book. Couldn’t put it down thereafter. To think that’s this is a true life experience is eye opening. Very well written.

Fabulous book

Could not put this book down. Amazing what Ruthie and her family went through and what courage she had at just 15 years old.
