I was hoping to enjoy a "times-in-the-life-of" type story about Naomi and Ruth. Although it gives a fascinating idea of what it was like to live then, the characters are not the honest and chaste characters of the Bible. Many are self-serving, greedy, and lack respect for others. The bad language was so frequent as to be offensive.
When I choose Christian fiction, I expect a break from offensiveness. If I want selfishness and offensive and disrespectful language, I just need to step out into the world.
