in the Women of Faith series, this one is about Ruth. Very good for making the people in the Bible and their times come alive.read more

Another great Rivers book. Though fiction, this book provides such amazing insight into the culture surrounding the story of David & Bathsheba.read more

Rivers does a good job portraying the fictionalized story of Ruth from the Bible. She bases it on the facts provided in the Bible and then provides her own story with the thoughts and feelings of Ruth, Boaz and Naomi. It does feel a bit more like a Bible study than a fictional book though and didn't shed any new thoughts on the story for me.read more

Unshaken: Ruth's story and her change of heart after losing her husband. She was encouraged to go back to her mother's land and have a fresh start to remarry since she was young. Her sister-in-law, lost her husband a year prior and stayed around until all their husband's died and Naomi would go back to her homeland. She left to go back to her former homeland and gods, but Ruth was determined and adamant about going with her mother-in-law, Naomi. Naomi warned her about their customs and religion which they were forbidden to worship any other god, Ruth agreed that she'd worship her god; also forewarned about the four deaths of stoning, burning, strangling, and slaying with a sword but this didn't easily scare Ruth off. She continued to follow even after Naomi also admitted that she had no home, no income, or nothing to go to but Ruth continued to hike the journey.Overall, most single Christians always refer to this story; finding their Boaz. "A good wife is more precious than rubies."This story was heart-felt and could imagine being in Ruth's shoes; the writer not only written a great story but evokes emotion and seeing Ruth through your own eyes.read more

I really like Francine Rivers because her stories bring Biblical stories to life for me. I appreciate the way she provides details of the setting and fills in the gaps with dialogue so that I can visualize, "hear", and "feel" with the characters. One of my biggest obstacles when it comes to reading the Bible is not being able to identify with the characters and the times. Francine Rivers bridges that gap for me without embelishing too much so that we stray from the Biblical message. It is important for me that an author stays as true to the Biblical story as possible. I am not interested in turning the Bible into a soap opera like some re-telling authors do. I am looking for just enough dialogue and detail to bring the characters to life and make them memorable. Francine River's stories do that for me.read more
