Unshaken is the third book in the Grace of Lineage series. "Your God will be my God": It is with these words that Ruth the Moabitess turns her face away from her father's home and idols, and journeys to Bethlehem with Naomi, her mother-in-law. And it is because of that determination, that perseverance, faith, and loyalty that Ruth becomes the great-grandmother of David, king of Israel, and an ancestor of Jesus.

Francine Rivers has done it again! She is one of the best authors in the world. She can take a story that you have heard and read about countless times and make it come to life in a dramatic way. The story of Ruth is so impacting, watching a woman who has lost everything and then leaves the only security she has to follow a woman she hardly knows back to a place where she is destined to be an outcast. The complete trust Ruth has in her mother-in law leads her to be one of the most honored women in all of history. This story will change your life! If you have ever been a place where you have no hope left, than this story will inspire you for greatness.

I was very impressed with this book. No matter what your religious beliefs are, your relationships will be transformed after reading and applying the principles of this book. The premise of this book teaches that there are 5 different ways people give and receive love. Basically, we all tick differently and we all have needs that are met in different ways. Because the author incorporates many real life examples, it is very easy and enjoyable to listen to. This book is designed for singles, but married individuals will learn something also. As singles it shows you how to relate to your future spouse, roommates, co-workers and friends. However, I would recommend his book on marriages for couples. Please take the time listening to this book, it will not only benefit you but all those you come in contact with.

If you have ever done something that you think is too horrible that you could never forgive yourself..than you need to listen to this book! This book has an incredible plot and story line that draws you into every detail. I couldn't stop listening to it! The characters are described with such accuracy that you feel as though you know them personally. The plot of this story is so relevant to our society, because many are facing some of the same issues..SEXUAL DESIRE..the need for ACCEPTANCE..ADULTRY..FORGIVENESS.. This story covers all these topics plus more. But most of all it gives you a reason to hope. You might think that the situation you are in is too horrible and complex to get fixed. But if the characters in this book can have hope through their unreal circumstances, so can you!
