and Confidante, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Caring, imaginative, Ruthe supports her family as a telephone operator, using her free time to
rescue others from evil but dares not tell her prairie hometown Mennonite family. Trapped by her
deception, Ruthe must find a creative solution for her own torment.

who knows what to say or do in every crisis? Ruthe is that kind of miracle-working friend. But
having so many friends creates a few problems for her, especially since she doesn't want her

How can Ruthe be totally devoted to Christ, winning friends, and helping them to live holy lives,
and to be so blind to her own short-comings? Watch as her deception and double-life sets a trap for
Ruthe, and the creative way she finally deals with it.
