New Releases: In the Field of Grace

Book Title: In the Field of Grace
Publisher: Moody Publishers / River North Fiction

Publication Date: June 15, 2014
(I know this isn't the "newest" book but at least it just came out this year :)

Description:
Destitute, grief-stricken, and unwanted by the people of God, Ruth arrives in Israel with nothing to recommend her but Naomi's, love. Her loftiest hope is to provide enough food to save Naomi and herself from starvation. But God has other plans for her life.

While everyone considers Ruth an outcast, she is astounded to find one of the most honored men of Judah showing her favor. Long since a widower and determined to stay that way, Boaz is irresistibly drawn to the foreign woman with the haunted eyes. 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.

Based on the biblical account of Ruth, In the Field of Grace is the story of a love that ultimately changes the course of Israel's destiny and the future of the whole world.


My Review:
I really liked how Tessa Afshar portrayed Ruth. She fit the Bible's description and yet was brought to life in a whole new way than how I had previously pictured her. Ruth is one of my favorite Bible heroines and I was glad that this book was a tribute to her. Besides how the characters were portrayed, the book itself was of good quality. The author did a great job of keeping your attention through an interesting and enjoyable storyline. Definitely a book I'd like to own.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Note: I received this book through NetGalley. http://netgalley.com
