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.
MY REVIEW: (LAWonder10)
This is an authors inspiring interpretation of the biblical story of Ruth,
The research done in presenting this view of the story of Ruth is very apparent. It fits into the traditions and mannerisms we know of during that time period in history.
This is the touching tale of cultural differences, ofttimes. prejudices and corruption
It is a testament of faith.
Ruth was thrilled when at her cousin's marriage, she was introduced to her cousin's new, younger brother-in-law. They got along so well and his offer of marriage saved her from an arranged marriage she had no desire to be a part of. She was amiable to the idea of changing her religion to this new Hebrew one, as did her cousin.
This Hebrew family had been given permission to dwell in the land of Moab. However, after over a decade, rustlers destroyed it all with no help from neighbors or the authorities.
Destitute, Naomi was left no other choice but to go back to Bethlehem and seek for the charity from relatives. Ruth refused to stay in Moab and insisted on following her mother-in-law to her land, worshiping and trusting in her God.
This is written simply, yet, very touchingly It "flow" smoothly forward, never losing the reader's attention.
This earns a Five Stars rating.
