This is a dramatic retelling of the story of Ruth and Naomi and it begins with the death of Boaz’s first wife. The cover is absolutely beautiful!
It is always interesting to see scripture come to live. It amuses me when people get upset at creative license, but if you are reading fiction that will happen. To me, it makes stories seem more real when the characters have personality. The novel was well written, but I think my YA heart found some sections a little too verbose. If you are a Ruth fan, you should give it a try.
Quote-Great first line
“Death squatted at Boaz’s door , like a vulture, biding its time. He could sense its presence-inexorable, hungry, patient.”
