Welcome to Memorable Monday! The purpose of Memorable Monday is to showcase an influential book read in the past that still sticks with you today. This fun Monday morning post is hosted by the lovely Becca at The Becca Files.
This week, I am featuring:
In the Field of Grace
by: Tessa Afshar
In the Field of Grace by Tessa Afshar is an absolutely stunning novel. I could not put it down and read it in one day! I love Ruth’s story. I go to it often when I need hope and peace from the Lord. Afshar has beautifully fictionalized Ruth’s amazing story. This is a story that will stay with me long after having read it! Exquisite writing, fantastic characterizations, and a great adventure fill this wonderful novel. If you have not yet read this gem, I highly recommend you at it to your TBR pile immediately.
About the Book
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.
