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.

Oh… I loved this novel! It had me captivated from the get-go. Such an inspiring story found in the bible about Ruth leaving her people to stay with her mother-in-law. I know this was a book of fiction based on a few scriptures that we know from the bible, but I loved this story. Heather did a fantastic job weaving the romance between Ruth and Boaz. I couldn’t get enough of this story and I don’t think I will ever read the bible story the same way without picturing them the way that Heather described.
If you are in search of a spellbinding, clean romance and page turning book, this is it! So much in love with this story of Ruth.
