Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Unshaken - Story of RuthFebruary 1, 2015Helen MAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5After Ruth's husband, Mahlon dies, Naomi is alone with her daughter in laws, Orpha and Ruth. Her husband and other son had past on. Naomi makes the decision to leave Kir-hareseth and return to Bethlehem. Ruth stays with Naomi, turning her back on her family, country and religion. The walk is hard on Naomi and when they get to Bethlehem they are forced to live in a cave and Ruth goes to the fields gleening the edges of fields for them to survive. After being treated badly at one field she ends up gleaning at Boaz's field. He treats her very well. Naomi gave Ruth guidance in developing a relationship with Boaz.
I really like this series. Even though it is historical fiction, it is based on the bible story of Ruth and Naomi. I like how the story gives insight into how life could have been for them. As well as the sacrifice Ruth made to stay with Naomi. The story does a very good job of pointing out that God will take care of our needs.

Book Summary: A beautiful retelling of the story of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz. Ruth gave up everything, expected nothing, and God honored her. Readers will be encouraged by the truth that God will faithfully provide for His children even when all hope seems lost.
Review: My favorite of the series. It is a magnificent retelling of the story of Ruth & Boaz. Ms. Rivers does a reverent writing of this story with details that are fiction but believable. She honors the scriptures but set up this retelling with scripture and historic details that go together beautifully. I loved the entire series but this novella was my favorite.

The Lineage of Grace series is the best ever written about special women in the Bible. It shows how God will use anyone who strives to know Him. You have to get the set. They are a MUST read. You will desire to put the story to your life. It opens the eyes of your heart and you will know that you have a lot to do in changing the way you look at the way you're living your life.
Kirsty5 Stars Out Of 5December 27, 2008KirstyI love this book! I really liked how she wove romance into the story, so you got a feeling of how much Ruth and Boaz grew to love each other so much. In the bible, it gives all the facts, but it doesn't really tell you how Boaz and Ruth really felt about each other, and it sort of leaves the story unfinished. It just says that they got married and had a baby. In Unshaken, it really made me feel like i was their , and it gave me a new way of looking at the story. Well Done, Francine Rivers!!
PJ3 Stars Out Of 5April 29, 2008PJI think Francine Rivers is the best Christian writer around, but, in my opinion, this was not her best effort. It was good, but not "Francine Rivers" good.
