Small town girl with double-life in Saskatoon

(new book published)

A new Saskatchewan novel, Ruthe's Secret Roses, by Ruth Marlene Friesen, of Hague, Saskatchewan, has just been published by The Lord's Morning Glory Publishing House and It features a small town high school grad, who commutes to work in Saskatoon, but who keeps her city friends a secret from her family and friends in her hometown, Kleinstadt.

Although she is a good girl, and her city friends love her for the way she helps them in their crises, Ruthe creatively evades her fears until her double-life does catch up with her.

"This story is peopled with friends from my vivid and imaginative teen years when I had few friends," says Friesen, who used to commute to work as a telephone operator, just as Ruthe, the main character of the novel does. "When my daydreams did not turn out to be prophecies," Friesen, who came home from Ontario 18 years ago to care for her aged parents, adds, "I knew they were destined to be in a book."

"I loved the transformations; the physical makeovers, the home decorating, and best of all, the total heart conversions," says Kathy Wollf, a Reflexologist in the Canarama Mall, and the first Reader of the novel."

Wollf adds, "I like that Ruthe has her faults too, that she deals with them, and grows through her problems."

Connie Lepovosky, Orlando, Florida, formerly a Typesetter, reviewed this book, and says, "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!"

Friesen, author of two self-published family histories, a chapbook of poetry, and freelanced articles and stories, says of her first novel, "I poured many years into this book, learning to write as I went, and finally decided to write the kind of story I'd love to read myself. Huge improvement! Now it's full of people, which I love, and features a young woman who also chatters to God at every turn about everything she experiences. That's something I believe other teens and women do too, but seldom confess openly."
