The story begins when Naomi and her family leave their drought-stricken home in Israel and take refuge on an agricultural estate in Moab. There they meet Ruth, a young shepherdess who is bright, talented, and ambitious. The rest of the story unfolds in a pattern consistent with the Biblical narrative, but the author fashions scenes within the narrative that bring Ruth and all of the other characters to life, complete with their insecurities, their obsessions and their ambitions. All are depicted as normal people with both virtues and blemishes. There has never been a Ruth like this, nor a Naomi, a Mahlon, a Rahab, nor a Boaz. But in the end the author restores Ruth to her place of honor and presents us with a lady worthy of being the mother of kings.
