Description

With lost love, a barren womb and an empty future, Ruth leaves her home after losing her husband to follow the woman she has grown to love as a true parent, her husband's mother, Naomi. Ruth arrives in Israel with nothing to recommend her but Naomi's, love. She is reduced to gathering leftovers once the harvesters have finished collecting grain from the field-a job only for the lowest of the low, to keep them from starvation.But God has other plans for Ruth's life. Ruth is shocked to find the owner of the field-one of the wealthiest and most honored men of Judah-is showing her favor. He tells himself he is only being kind to his cousin Naomi's chosen daughter when he goes out of his way to protect her from harm, but his heart knows better.Obstacles. Heartache. Withered dreams. How can God forge love, passion, and new hope between two such different people?
