Lady Ruth Bromfield: She escaped Nazi persecution as a child, then grew to become an inspirational leader Kindle Edition
1935. Hitler’s Nazi’s are firmly in control in Germany, and the persecution of the Jews has begun in earnest. In this desperate time of uncertainty, an unmarried Jewish woman gives birth to a daughter, whom she names Ruth.But as the clouds of war gather, and it seems that Europe will once more be engulfed in conflict, Ruth’s mother makes the heart-wrenching decision to send her to safety on one of the ‘Kindertransport’ trains.Arriving in England, Ruth is housed with a priest who raises her in the Christian faith, but also recognises her Jewish ancestry and so employs help to also raise her according to Jewish traditions.It soon becomes apparent that Ruth is a very special child and can build bridges between people of different backgrounds, even at an early age.From Nazi Germany to England and then to Australia, Ruth overcomes religious and ethnic intolerance and becomes an engineer on the Snowy Mountain Hydroelectric Project, defying all the odds.It is a story of overcoming the brutality of life, of chasing your dreams and of bringing people together. But above all, it is a story of hope.

An Outstanding Lady and Exceptional StoryReviewed in the United States on 18 September 2017
What a thoroughly enjoyable experience to read about this lady's life. The terrible sadness to family members at the beginning of her existence was dramatically changed when she was adopted by a wonderful English couple, who loved her as their own. Their humble attitude and deep consideration procured a well balanced and sensitive noble character in Lady Ruth. I love history yet some books can be boring. Not so this one, written about an incredible time of history that should never be forgotten and won't be by all those who dwell in these pages. The author's description of events draws the reader in by the way he paints a picture in the mind with words. What a great movie this book would make.
