Ruth Wariner is a beautiful, smart blonde with a bubbly personality.
However, she’s not “the girl next door”. Hers is a different story.
When I met Ruth Wariner there was no hint of the pain and suffering that she had endured for years. Her story is one that most of us can not begin to fathom. It goes beyond the sadness of loss of loved ones, crippling illness or other debilitating life events. It is a story of escape and triumph.
It is to her credit that she is now a New York Times Best Selling author. Her memoir The Sound of Gravel describes her early life growing up in a polygamous cult in Mexico. It was a life of abuse, extreme poverty and no hope except to marry at a young age and blend into the male-dominated community.
At a time when girls are thinking of prom dates and planning for college, Ruth was escaping during the night from the only world she had known. Her struggle, her insight and her message of resilience and courage make the book a joy to read in spite of the difficult content. It is my honor to share her story with you.
