18 year old Ruthe supports her family as a telephone operator, but what she
really does in her free time is - walk and talk with her Best Friend in an
imaginary garden, where her new friends are the roses that they discuss.
Her irratic shifts confuse her family so that she gets away with not telling
them of adventures in her free time, where she rescues city strangers and impacts
Do you wish a miracle-working angel would rescue you from your family problems?
Wouldn't you love to have a perfect friend show up when you're in crisis?
Ruthe is that kind of friend.
But she makes so many of them, and keeping them a secret from her family back
in Kleinstadt has to catch up with her sooner or later. There's Darlin' Bonne
and the girls at the Shoppe, Lisa the former prostitute, and Phyllis, known to
her high school students as the Fire-Spitting Dragon, to name a few.
What about that mansion given to her? Does she really turn down all those guys?
Ruthe is one complicated person, but the more you get to know her, the more
you'll think of her as your friend, and you'll want to help her out when she
finally grapples with her personal crisis in deceiving her family.
Canadian, Ruth Marlene Friesen, moved home just about 20 years ago to care for
her aged parents. Her mother died in 1997. She still is homemaker and caregiver
for her dad, 87, who does their gardening.
Books and writing are her main life on the internet now. She has been active in her church too.
"I collect friends the way others collect souvenirs or treasured old antiques,"
she says. "I look forward to helping the new friends this book is bound to bring me."

In the Garden
Your book was a pleasure to read. I loved all the transformations; the
physical makeovers, the home decorating, and best of all, the total
heart conversions. All are made possible by an unassuming young Mennonite
woman who trusts God to lead her and work through her.
There aren't many books written about the Mennonite way of life;
particularly having them associating with other faiths, and sharing their faith.
(Kathy Wollf - First Reader)
I love it! Your style of writing is excellent, especially the way you
build interest and keep me wanting to read faster and faster. What a
wonderful story :-)
(Connie Lepovosky, Typesetter).
Wow! This little lady gets around doesn't she! The style is unique, not
your typical bookstore novel. I like the "stream of consciousness" effect
as we see into her thoughts and she talks to her Companion about
