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

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

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

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 :-)

Wow! This little lady gets around doesn't she! The style is unique, not
