MY THOUGHTS

I believe this is my first book by Tessa Afshar, but it will not be my last. She created a beautiful retelling of Ruth’s story within these pages, bringing the people around her to life in breathtaking realism, emotion, and expression. I love biblical fiction for its ability to broaden my perspective–not so much on the story itself but on all the historical events and human verity that surround the bits we are told in Scripture. Mrs. Afshar obviously researched and wrestled with all of these pieces and wove them together in a story that felt real and personal, so perfectly gentle and relatable that I know it was God Himself who brought it to me for this time. If you enjoy biblical fiction, Tessa Afshar is an author you do not want to miss.

DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS

Without wealth or family, the widow Ruth left her people and followed Naomi, her beloved Hebrew mother-in-law, to rebuild Naomi’s home in Israel. Provisions gone and starvation at the door, Ruth used all that she had left–a strong back and a willing heart–to gather grain in a field, abandoned after the harvest.

Tormented by others, Ruth is shocked to find the owner of the field watching her. Talking to her. Bringing food to her and Naomi. Boaz tells himself his kindness toward Ruth is repayment for the love she has shown to his cousin Naomi. But his heart knows better.
