Synopsis

<p>From master storyteller Walter Wangerin, Jr. comes this familiar biblical saga told in a fresh, transfixing way. You&rsquo;ll feel you&rsquo;ve never heard it before! Melding historical accuracy with imaginative detail, Wangerin uses the biblical books of Judges and Ruth to explore themes of love, faith, grief and community set against a backdrop of war and political instability. The widow Naomi grieves the deaths of her two adult sons after the shocking murder of a beloved adopted daughter, while pondering her responsibilities toward her Moabite daughters-in-law. Ancient Israel is in chaos. When her daughter-in-law, Ruth, begs to return to Israel with Naomi, events are set in motion that will change the course of history. But wait&hellip;this isn&rsquo;t the tame, flannel graph story you heard in Sunday School. In the tradition of Anita Diamant&rsquo;s The Red Tent and Elissa Elliott&rsquo;s Eve: A Novel of the First Woman, Wangerin imbues his tale with strong female characters and an earthy realism that gives the timeless Old Testament narrative so much power. You&rsquo;ll find echoes of contemporary issues throughout: deceit, heartbreak, loss, war, and, of course, the power of love. Naomi&rsquo;s combined strength and tenderness becomes the pivot upon which a nation turns; her decisions ultimately lead to the founding of the family lineage of Jesus Christ. Breathtaking descriptions, shocking violence, and inspirational courage make this spellbinding novel by a beloved award-winning author a story you won&rsquo;t soon forget. It&rsquo;s the perfect novel for your book group, and a satisfying read for those who love thoughtful biblical fiction.</p>
