“An impressively honest and revealing glimpse   
into the little known world of women who discover
their partners are pedophiles.”  
Lora Bex Lempert, Prof.,.University of Michigan-Dearborn

“Sophia Ruah writes from the heart – of not just
unspeakable pain but of unbridled hope.”  
Jeff Prugh, Journalist, Editor, Author, Pulitzer Prize Nominee

"This is not a book for the faint-hearted. It is in
many ways, a love story, but it is heavy going."
                  Martha Hickman, author of Healing After Loss

Job Of Arc is the story of Sophia Ruah, a woman
who dreamed of owning a home in the country
where she would foster, nurture, and protect as
many wounded and displaced children as the
system would allow. Her designation as a minister
and her employment with the state's Children's
Protective Services gave her the credibility and
means to realize her dream.
After marrying a "a bright, compassionate,
attractive man" and purchasing a secluded country
home that she christened "The Refuge," Sophia
Ruah believed she had established a loving and
strong family unit and a safe haven for her three
already adopted sons. However, a shocking
revelation soon shattered and destroyed the life
Sophia thought she was living.
Writing under the pseudonym Sophia Ruah, the
author of
Job Of Arc offers an honest and revealing
account of how the actions of one pedophile can
threaten and destroy an entire family. Ruah also
recounts her battle with the state's Children's
Protective Services and how she had to make a
difficult decision regarding her beloved church.
A true story that is often painful to read,
Job Of
is not only the story of acute betrayal and loss,
it is also the story of the slow and healing nature of
forgiveness and redemption.
