Publisher's Summary

When famine visits Bethlehem, Boaz holds out hope for rain while his relative Elimelech moves his wife, Naomi, and their sons to Moab. For a while it appears the Lord is blessing Elimelech's family, and his sons marry two lovely Moabite women. But calamities strike one after another, leaving Naomi alone in a foreign land with only her childless daughters-in-law for comfort. When news reaches Naomi that the famine in Bethlehem has lifted, only Ruth will hazard the journey to her mother-in-law's homeland. Destitute and downhearted, Naomi resigns herself to a life of bitter poverty, but Ruth holds out hope for a better future. And Boaz may be the one God has chosen to provide it.

Combining meticulous research with her endless imagination, Jill Eileen Smith gorgeously renders one of the most beautiful stories in Scripture. Listeners will adore this third installment of the inspiring Daughters of the Promised Land series.

<br />The book was fast pace and interesting.

I expected a good audio and narrative and was not disappointed. I like historical Biblical fiction.
The author helped me understand what life was like for women and foreigners. The difference between the two cultures was the love of the characters for Yaweh. The story help me understand the book of Ruth better. It didn't just retell the biblical account but added details which are not included. Well done.

History brought alive.

A fascinating book about a fascinating episode in the coming of the Messiah. Jill has been able to bring alive the religious and political tensions existing in the generations preceding the coming of the Messiah. She has lifted what is already an extraordinary bible record and fleshed out the intimate details of the key people in a believable and clear way.
