One Minute Before Midnight is a compelling, frank memoir of a dynamic and adventurous woman, who in her 90s is active, sharp, well-spoken, and has lived a fascinating life. She escaped from Nazi Germany within days of the beginning of World War II. She came to America and had very little money. By the time she was done with her professional career in the 1980s, she was the president of her own corporation which she sold for millions.
One of the biggest life defining things that happened to her, occurred when she was 14. It was then that she met and fell in love with a married man, and the ensuing relationship defined the rest of her life. Ruth is a consummate survivor, a world traveler, and art collector who tells her story in her own words, making this book a conversation with a truly remarkable woman.
