    Refuge Under His Wings

    Redeeming Grace is the third book in the Daughters of the Promised Land by Jill Eileen Smith and is a wonderfully written historical novel. Redeeming Grace is Ruth's story. A much-beloved story of the Old Testament becomes even more endearing and real with the expert touch of this author's hand. Naomi, heartbroken, leaves her drought-stricken homeland only to find more heartache in the land of Moab. She became more wretched than she ever thought possible--her heart felt nothing but pain. Ruth, a Moabitess, an alien in a foreign land, a young woman who just wants to be loved, finds herself married to an Israelite whose God might just be One who hears her prayers. Boaz is a trusted elder and leader in Bethlehem who knows following God's Law is always the right thing to do, despite the sometimes inexplicable harshness of life. The blending of these three lives as they each go through loss and grief, filled with disillusionment, anger, and bitterness is a testament to a gracious and redemptive God. The author gives great attention to historical detail and with beautiful prose and dynamic dialogue fleshes out these characters so they seem to step out of history right into the reader's heart. To watch Ruth's faith grow from belief in a false god to believing in Naomi's God and on to belief in a personal God is marvelous. To read how God changes seemingly wasted years in Moab into a blessing for Naomi is miraculous. And to recognize that even though one is often left with the broken remains of what once was, there is hope that God makes all things new. Redeeming grace is a wonderful story of renewal, resurrection, and redemption...a story you will not want to miss. I was given a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher. A positive review was not expected and the opinions are my own.

    Redemption and Grace

    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.
