This is the historical fiction story of Ruth from the Bible. I have really enjoyed reading this authors books on the women of the Bible. Reading these books is a great way to understand the customs and traditions that existed during this time period. It helps you to understand the characters better.

Pg 16 "Naomi's sorrow was so deep that she felt paralyzed by it. All she could do is wait for the sun to rise so she could go on sitting in this dusty,dank corner and listening to the rush of people going past her door. How dare life go on as it always had, when her sons were dead! She resented the laughter of the neighbors outside her door. She was embittered by the changeless activity. Were her loved ones so unimportant they might have been mere grains of sand cast into the Dead Sea, leaving hardly a ripple?"
