Book Summary:

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.

I was completely caught up in the story of Ruth and Boaz as I read this story. I love the way Moore brings biblical characters to life for me. I always read the account from the scriptures as I am reading these books. I gain so much insight into what life might have been like for these characters. Aside from looking more closely at the scripture story, I also love the characters that Moore creates. They are captivating and strong. The story sucks me in and I anxiously read on. Even after completing the book, the story swims around in my head for awhile. I am intrigued and want to know more about the lives of these characters. There is so much faith, strength, and goodness in each of them. I love that Moore brings these characters to life for me.
