Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Toni Sorenson comes a captivating account of the beloved Old Testament story of Ruth and Naomi. 

Ruth and Naomi: Whithersoever Thou Goest is the inspiring tale of two women’s matchless devotion, envisioned as never before. It is a time of famine and despair in the land: crops are failing, idol-worship is widely practiced, and those who follow the God of Israel are cruelly oppressed. Israel’s defeat at the hands of Moab has left a nation in despair, and among the struggling are Naomi and her blacksmith husband, Elimelech. Following a series of unspeakable tribulations, Elimelech is a harder man - and despite his family’s misgivings, he makes a decision that changes their lives forever. The King of Moab is in need of the kind of weaponry that Elimelech can produce, and Naomi feels she must support her husband in his desire to heed the call to serve. So, along with their two young sons, the family leaves their home in Bethlehem to begin a new life. 

As the family gains favor in the sight of the king, Naomi’s sons endear themselves to two of the king’s daughters, Orpah and Ruth, and marry into the royal family. But when tragedy claims the lives of their husbands, events are set in motion for Naomi and Ruth that will alter the course of history.

Enriching and Tender

Ruths name has always been important to me but I knew nothing of the culture or WHY what she said would be so important. The story opened my eyes and heart to see a woman I grew to love. As I came to listen to the life of Naomi I realized an Integrity issue in my own life. As she sat depressed and alone she realized she had forsaken her God. She took a stand for her belief and life did not get easier but in the future ended up giving her so much of what her heart desired. I chose to do what she did and my life has been enriched and my loyalty to my God has returned. It is a story that really did touch my heart.

Beautiful story, beautifully told

The story goes into so much detail and is told so beautifully that I was able to loose myself in it. This is definitely a book worth reading/hearing!

A favorite Old Testament story comes to life

I have long loved the story about Ruth and her mother in law Naomi. This version of the story adds even more grace, compassion, and beauty to a story of conversion and faith.
