A Powerful True Story of Redemption & Romance
 At five years old, Ruth is an outgoing girl and her
favorite place is church…until her world is rocked by sexual abuse. Now she
lives in a private hell of silence, rejection, rage and shame.
 As a teenager, desperate for attention, she spirals
further into depression, embracing a lifestyle of promiscuity, sensuality and
self-hatred. Stripped of innocence, deceived by people she trusted and haunted
by skeletons from her past, Ruth longs for love but doesn’t believe she will
ever find it. Shame engulfs her. Suicide is tempting. Who would ever want to
marry a fallen preacher’s daughter?

“I more than loved
your book. I cried, I laughed, I loved God with you. ... Damage done to us as
children can hurt us forever unless in some wonderful way we find rescue. …You
told a story in a way that multitudes still need to hear, and all can find a
kindred spirit....”
