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.

Captivating story, hated to put it down

Another wonderful story by Jill Eileen Smith and a beautiful ending. I felt the narrator did a great job, kept my attention which is hard to do.

Love It

I enjoyed this book because it was very close to the original story as written in the Book of Ruth.
The writer's account reflected filled a great deal of knowledge of the Hebrew culture and ancient history.

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.
