One devoted woman is about to discover the power of love
When famine visits Bethlehem, some hold out hope for rain, while Naomi and her family make a long journey to Moab in search of greener pastures. The harvest there is plentiful, and for a time it appears the Lord is blessing them. But when calamities strike, one after another, Naomi is left alone in a foreign land with only her widowed daughters-in-law for comfort.
Downhearted and destitute, Naomi is determined to return to Bethlehem alone. But her daughter-in-law Ruth refuses to leave her side. Despite the fact that she and Naomi will almost certainly live out their days in widowhood and poverty, Ruth holds out hope for a better future . . . and maybe even a second chance at love.
Life always seems to get in the way of the things we love the most but, when I saw that Jill Eileen Smith’s newest novel, Redeeming Grace, was out I just couldn’t let life stop me.
Redeeming Grace is the third book in the “Daughters of the Promised Land” series and is not to be missed or set aside for a later reading date. Jill Eileen Smith thoroughly researches in order to bring the story of Ruth, Boaz, and Naomi from the Bible’s Old Testament to life. The story tells one of my favorite bible stories of three individuals who were brought together by loss, grief, and through the grace of our God. I highly recommend reading this book. I will be reading this one again.
I received this book free from the publisher through the Revell book bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
