Review: In the Field of Grace
In the Field of Grace by Tessa Afshar
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Having read three other books by Tessa Afshar, I must admit I was disappointed in this book. Maybe the character of Ruth didn't lend itself to the way the author usually writes. I don't know. But I felt like the story lacked the depth that her other stories did. It's a simple, sweet, fictional telling of the biblical story of Ruth with a back story for Boaz and Ruth. I did like the way Naomi cared for Ruth and Ruth cared for Naomi. The story also touches on trust, surrender, faith, and healing, and redemption. Not a bad read, just not one of my favorites from this author.
*Thanks to Moody Publishers and NetGalley for providing me with an e-ARC of the book in exchange for my honest opinion & review.*
