BAY AREA SURVIVOR’S FIRST NOVEL / “ANOTHER RUTH”

“What, in a world gone mad, is the value of love?” 90-year old Rita Kuhn will tell you in her love story from the Weimar Republic. Be ready to be swept into a story of music, romance, biblical philosophy, and war.

Berkeley, CA - February 15, 2018 - An inspiring story, written by an inspired author, has just been released by Cactus Moon Publications, LLC. In Another Ruth, Klara and Lev are two individuals from seemingly irreconcilable worlds who meet during a time of increasing social unrest and prejudice. Their courtship confronts them with the political and racial struggles in Germany during this turbulent period. Klara and Lev, caught in Berlin's upheaval during the rise of National Socialism, must ask themselves who they really are. What are their core values? What, in a world gone mad, is the value of love?

The book Another Ruth is named after the biblical Ruth, one of the first converts to Judaism. The Ruth in Kuhn’s novel is based on the author’s actual mother, Frieda Kuhn, who chose to become a Jewess in 1920’s Berlin just prior to Jews being targeted for annihilation by the Nazis.
