"Ruthell Price is a very important new voice in contemporary literature. Her storytelling is unique because it is told from the point of view of the average working person. Ruth does not try to dazzle with fancy metaphors or soliloquies. Her brand of storytelling is straight forward and simple. Her creations are relatable and refreshing ... Her story sheds light on the imperfections of a system that has become an infallible institution. This makes Ruth's stories so valuable. They force us to question the unquestionable, and that is the first step to improving flawed traditions." -Mark E. Swinton, writer, director, and producer at Tyler Perry Studios ..". The manner in which she draws the reader into her own personal experiences leaves one with the sense of being a part of her journey. However, though each piece is entertaining, complete with humor, drama and the unexpected, there is far more to her work. As with all works of art that possess a deeper meaning, her tales invoke an evaluation of one's life ... a heightened attitude of gratitude and above all ... an increased desire to make faith, hope, and love an everyday priority." -Rick Mizuno, author, poet, musician, radio personality, and speaker "To witness spiritual growth, development, and maturity unfold before your very eyes is truly a privilege. Now, you can experience the same through the life and treasured moments in "Ocean of Smiles, Stream of Tears."" -Bishop Donald R. Cook Sr., brother and senior pastor, California Harvest Tabernacle Bible Church, Inc.
