Ruth was born to German Jewish immigrant parents. When she was three years old, her parents divorced, leaving her grandmother and mother to raise her – along with a babysitter who became a world-famous entertainer! This autobiography is a reminder that there is no set script to life. At twenty, Ruth left home for Florida with the man she loved, and they experienced rough seas on a failed fishing trip to Cuba. The affair was short-lived, producing a son. Despite a failed ensuing marriage, Ruth continued her journey that led her to work as a secretary in the Miami boating industry, and eventually to own with her then-husband a gun shop in Miami in the '80s! Late in life, Ruth survived end-stage renal failure, which you will read about. Ruth's life reminds us that life is filled with excitement, triumph, and speedbumps. So, get ready to turn these pages and enjoy the ride!
