Master storyteller and best-selling author H. B. Moore brings to life the biblical account of Ruth as never before in this vivid retelling of her courageous and faithful life.
Following the death of Ruth's husband, she finds herself at a crossroads. Rather than return to her family and hometown, the young widow makes a remarkable decision: she will remain with her mother-in-law, Naomi, as her caretaker and companion.
Together, the two widows boldly leave behind the lives they knew in the land of Moab and make their way to Bethlehem, arriving downtrodden and destitute. Though Ruth works day and night to provide for Naomi, it is ultimately through the kindness and generosity of Boaz that the two women find respite from their trials. As Ruth comes to know Boaz, she finds that her broken heart is beginning to heal in ways she could never have imagined. But when a question of inheritance threatens any hope of a life with Boaz, Ruth may have to give up the last piece of her heart in order to secure her future.
Ruth is another beautiful book written by a talented author. I have always loved Ruth and Naomi's story from the scriptures, so I was looking forward to reading this book. As with every book from this author, the characters are well-developed and their struggles were heartfelt. Ruth was a wonderful character. The author does a great job of showing the reader what a compassionate person she was. I also loved Naomi. I enjoyed the POV switches from Ruth and Boaz. Both character's journeys were captivating and well written. The author took a story from the Bible and made it her own.
5 out of 5 stars.
