"I couldn't put it down!! Never before has any book ignited so wide array of feelings and emotions within (no pun intended). I laughed, cried and read it again, and again, and again. The War Within provides a glimpse into the mind of a soldier. I could feel the pain, joy and anger of the young woman and fellow veteran, who stood tall when the nation called. I understand her quest to regain the person she left behind, on the field of battle. Her writing is a stroke of literary genius." ~ Kate W. Drexler, CPO (Ret.), US Navy
"Ruby's poetry is written in a very compelling, gripping fashion. Real life is stripped of all distractions. It is artistic and intuitive." ~ Lorraine Austin
"...very powerful and moving poems about the military experience."
~ Sheila Fullwood, SFC (Ret.), US Army
