Publisher's Description

When famine visits Bethlehem, Boaz holds out hope for rain while his relative Elimelech moves his wife Naomi and their sons to Moab. For a while, it appears the Lord is blessing Elimelech's family, and his sons marry two lovely Moabite women. But calamities strike, one after another, leaving Naomi alone in a foreign land with only her childless daughters-in-law for comfort. When news reaches Naomi that the famine in Bethlehem has lifted, only Ruth will hazard the journey to her mother-in-law's homeland. Destitute and downhearted, Naomi resigns herself to a life of bitter poverty, but Ruth holds out hope for a better future. And Boaz may be the one God has chosen to provide it.

Combining meticulous research with her endless imagination, Jill Eileen Smith gorgeously renders one of the most beautiful stories in Scripture. Readers will adore this third installment of the inspiring Daughters of the Promised Land series.

    Beautiful Ruth Retelling

    I'm not sure this book really needs a description: It is the classic, Biblical story of Ruth. Naomi, her husband, and her two sons flee the famine in Bethlehem to live in Moab. There, the brothers marry Ruth and Orpah, and then the three men of the family die. The three women are unprotected and poor, and two decide to make the trek back to Bethlehem to start afresh. And then there's Boaz, a recent widower who takes a special interest in Ruth as she works in his fields...

    It is a beautiful story. The romance between Ruth and Boaz, the redemption from all the pain the characters have suffered, the new hope. This is why I have read three different retellings as well as the original several times. It's a story that never gets old.

    I loved this version of it, Redeeming Grace by Jill Eileen Smith. It pulled my emotions and made me teary at the end. Watching the characters experience so much grief was hard. But the end was so beautiful and hopeful, a redemption that made everything worth it.

    The historical details were interesting too. The sexism was spot on for the culture; sad, but true. And Moab, well, I appreciated the historical context. Israel had recently won a war with Moab, a fact which created tension in the characters because the Moabites were not too interested in befriending the Israelite new neighbors.

    I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to fans of Biblical retellings.

    I received a complementary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

    Wonderful Retelling

    I have read other fiction books based on Ruth and Naomis story and really enjoyed them. So it always makes we wonder when I am getting ready to read a new book based on the same story if I will be bored if I could like it as much.

    I should have known because it was Jill writing the book I would be reading something brand new. She put twists in this story I never saw coming. She looked at things in a way I had never imagined them happening to our cast of characters before.

    The relationships each character has with the others is something new and fresh.

    If you enjoy the story of Ruth and Naomi I think you will find this retelling quite interesting and moving as well.

    A copy of this book was given to me. All opinions are my own.

    This review was written for Redeeming Grace.
    She's done it again. I have read books from several of Jill Eileen Smith's different series now, and she just gets better and better! Perhaps her greatest strength is the obvious amount of research she does before writing her stories. Redeeming Grace is a fictional retelling of the biblical story of Ruth. Anyone who is even remotely familiar with Ruth's story knows that there isn't much in the biblical account of Naomi and Ruth's life before returning to Bethlehem. In fact, Naomi, Elimelek, Mahlon, and Kilion leave Bethlehem, travel to Moab, and live in Moab for 10 years (plus some other stuff which I won't mention for spoilers sake) all within the first 5 verses of the Book of Ruth!!! Naomi and her daughters-in-law are already traveling back to Bethlehem by Chapter 1, Verse 6!

    Haven't you ever wondered what it was like in Moab? What Naomi's life was like there? What happened to Mahlon and Kilion? Who Ruth and Orpah really were? Why Naomi's sons married Moabites? I have! Of course, we don't really know. God gives us in the Bible everything we need to know, but not everything there IS to know, and that is how it should be. Jill Eileen Smith does not have a crystal ball or some secret historical document. She does not know the answers to any of these questions. But she does have an imagination and a great deal of knowledge through research. With those two things combined, she has managed to write a fictional account of what COULD be a POSSIBLE scenario that answers some of our questions. That's what biblical fiction is. And Jill Eileen Smith is the master craftsman. Just to give you an idea, Naomi, Ruth, and Orpah don't set out for Bethlehem until CHAPTER 21. Chapter 21 people!!

    This book will keep your attention for hours, and you will be just spellbound by the story Jill Eileen Smith tells about these flawed people, in a story whose main character ends up being in the lineage of Jesus Christ.

    I received this book free from Revell through the Revell Reads program. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.

    "Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go...your people shall be my people, and your God my God." (174) - Ruth 1:16

    The book of Ruth, and the story of Ruth and Naomi had always been one of my favorites in the Bible. Redeeming Grace by Jill Eileen Smith brings this story to life as we encounter the customs and the realities of life during this time in Bethlehem and Moab. There is a stark contrast between the pagan customs of Moabites to the truth in trust of Adonai (God) for the Israelites. I thought setting the story before the famine, and before Naomi and her family's move to Moab was interesting. It definitely provided the backstory that allows a better understanding of Naomi's character and mindset, and appreciation of the bond her and Ruth builds in time.

    "God blessed me more than I deserved the day He gave me you." (270)

    The story is narrated through Naomi's, Ruth's and Boaz' perspectives, and it gives insight to the times and relates to readers on a personal level. I enjoyed the overall retelling of this story, and love the fact that actual Biblical verses were shared at the beginning of each section. In retrospect, Redeeming Grace can be a love story, between Boaz and Ruth, or between Naomi and Ruth, but one can also take it as a love story between Adonai and His people. The amount of faith that resounds throughout, even when characters were skeptical, they trust in His plan.

    One can also see the amount of research the author had done to create this story, from customs to timeline to meaning of the message. As this is the first book by Jill Eileen Smith that I've read, I am in awe with how thoroughly fascinating it is to refer to the Book of Ruth as I read Redeeming Grace. I need to add the rest of her novels to my TBR for sure, especially this collection! If you love Biblical fiction with great research and brings the biblical times to life, you'll enjoy Redeeming Grace.

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.

    Redeeming Grace: Ruth's Story by Jill Eileen Smith is a fictional account of one of my favorite Old Testament books of the Bible. Filled with rich detail, the author's impeccable research is evident in every chapter. I loved the characters and as I always do when reading one of Jill's books, learned things that give me greater understanding of Bible times. Themes of redemption, mercy, forgiveness and grace are woven throughout and remind the reader of God's plan of redemption for the human race. This is the third book in the Daughters of the Promised Land series. It can be read as a stand-alone novel. I highly recommend this book and give it a 5 star rating.

    I received a copy of this book from the author and Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
