I'm so glad I finally read this book! After becoming a widow in the San Bernardino terrorist attack I became very interested in the Book of Ruth. I learned about this author from a friend and of course I needed to read this book first! It's absolutely wonderful. It gives a bigger picture of the history of Naomi and Ruth before they travelled back to Bethlehem. It really fleshed out the family tree and how things worked back then. A great read!

I have read every book you have written. I have never loved any book as much as I have all of yours. They are so real and historical correct. Once you begin you are hooked. I am very impatiently waiting for Dahveed 4 to appear.

This is an amazing book, I could hardly put it down. It really deserves a higher rating, but since that isn't possible, I can only say to give it a chance. I will be reading the rest of her books as soon as I can get my hands on them.

good story of the life of Ruth. An easy story to follow and gain a picture of life and times of biblical times. The story and characters are also further expounded on the author's new releases: a 6-book series on David, titled "Dahveed". Good read. :)

Another winner by Terri Fivash, Boaz and Ruth are portrayed in the standard damsel in distress and knight in shining armor, I literally couldn't put it down.

Another amazing Terri Fivash book. (I know this one came out before Joseph and Dahveed, but I read them first.) I love any Fivash story, she has a very unique way of bringing stories to life.

While chronologically speaking, this story falls before David, I read this one after I read Dahveed: Yahweh's Chosen. In some ways, it made more sense in that order. I enjoyed this book tremendously.

Great book that keeps you riveted to the pages. Quite thick, but well worth the time.

Ruth's story is one of my favorite Bible stories, and reading this book of Terri's, with so much detail has made it all the more dear.
