Love resurrected from lifeless arms happens in the arms of a loving God. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I was hooked from the first page. This is an amazing book. The biblical story came alive as the love of Ruth and Boaz unfolded. I devoured the book, reading late into the night.” Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Afshar writes unforgettable biblical fiction. Here she’s taken the beloved Naomi and developed her family into its fullness. Naomi and Ruth adhere to the God of Judah, and there are distinct indicators in Afshar’s writing that reflect her research of the Old Testament’s cultural norms. Having to endure the hardships of grief brings together a lively and lovely cast of characters.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
In the Field of Grace tackles another well known and oft told Biblical story, that of Ruth the Moabite, who became part of the lineage of King David and Jesus Christ. Once again, Tessa’s seemingly effortless talent breathes new life into this beautiful love story and makes it come alive. With vivid imagery and impeccable descriptions the land of Judah, Boaz’s fields, the protagonists in this story, Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz, all leap from the page. The sights and smells of the countryside, the bitterness of Naomi, the devotion of Ruth, and the heroics of Boaz are told with insight, tenderness, and authenticity—as much as a twenty-first century author can imagine of years gone by!” Relz Reviewz
