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.

A heroine come to life

I have always admired Ruth. This rendering and performance brought her to life in a plausible situation. The characters faced troubles without giving up the integrity we have come to admire in them.

Exciting Biblical Fiction

Ruth is a Biblical favorite of mine. This novel adds a rich backstory and helps fill in details that made her story come to life.

A fantastic retelling

I’ve always been a fan of Ruth and love to read all the different tales I can find, but this may be my favorite. A great story with fantastic integral supporting characters. Boaz is perfect. Narrator is one of my favorites.

Amazing!

I LOVED this book. The narrators were amazing and the book was great. I was not expecting to enjoy a bible story as much as I did with this one. The author did a great job keeping it interesting. I can’t wait to read/listen to more like this!

Good book

I enjoyed this biblical retelling of Ruth. It was interesting and enjoyable. I have always loved Ruth and Boaz’s story. It was sweet and intriguing. My only complaint is that the beginning was a little wordier than I like.

Ruth

This has always been my favorite love story of all time. This book brought the characters to life. It is based on a true story, but the author has filled in to make the story flow. The narration was really good. I would recommend this book!

Love the Story!

I loved this story. It was very well written. I also loved that there were both male and female Narrators (Nancy and Alan Peterson) for the story. I voluntarily read this ARC audiobook from Sweet Sounds Audio Group. I would very much recommend this book!
