by Liz Curtis Higgs
Partial Synopsis from the Author's Website: You know Ruth’s story. Now meet her in person. And prepare to be changed. Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomi’s hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together. And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God, big time.
My Thoughts: This is the first book I've read by Liz Curtis Higgs. No wonder she is a best-selling author! I love her writing style! I've read the Book of Ruth and studied it before, but it's never been brought to life quite like this. There are plenty of time gaps in the Book of Ruth with very little detail about what happened. While we will never really know, Liz offers some possible options. I loved her humorous approach to this timeless love story.
What have you been reading?
I read several types of books. Read a book recently about a young woman who was in army then Nat'l Guard who is helicopter pilot. Story is about her having to go to Iraq, fly her helicopter, loses her best friend who was also pilot, almost gets divorced, has terrible time when she comes home, how it affects her family. Had me crying several times and educated me on little of what it's like for soldiers coming back after being in combat.ReplyDelete
Had read it while back but I was out of book to read and broke so went out to shed to dig for books. Had just finished another book that had some about what happens to soldiers in combat when they go home.
I like to read different kinds of books, depends on what can find at thrift store and how much money I have or what's available.
The book you described sounds interesting. I seem to like stories about England during WWII, Irish books by Maeve Binchy and English/Scotland by Rosamunde Pilchur. She wrote The Shell Seekers but hads written others too.
Enjoy rest of weekend
