Endorsements:

"Meadow Rue Merrill is a great storyteller, and she's gifted us with the story of her beautiful Ruth. You'll be glad you picked it up and won't want to put it down."
–Margot Starbuck, author of The Girl in the Orange Dress

"Sure to inspire an outbreak of deepened hearts, larger families, greater love. Isn't this the kind of life Jesus has called us all to?"
- Leslie Leyland Fields, author of Crossing the Waters: Following Jesus through the Storms, the Fish, the Doubt and the Sea

"In all my years of journalism, I've read few accounts so well told, so powerfully written, so deeply moving. Merrill eloquently describes the suffering that comes with love, and the love that blossoms in suffering. Be prepared to have your heart gripped--and strangely warmed."
-Mark Galli, editor in chief of Christianity Today

"Some stories warm your heart; others break it. Redeeming Ruth does both. She was the littlest, the last, and the least of all, but God used this exceptional child to change not only a family, but an entire community--and, Lord willing, you too. God said, 'A little child shall lead them,' and I pray Ruth's story will lead you into a closer, sweeter, and more intimate encounter with Jesus than you dreamed possible. I have the deepest admiration and respect for the Merrill family, and it's with great joy I recommend this book to you!"
–Joni Eareckson Tada, CEO of Joni and Friends International Disability Center
