Naomi And Her Daughters Author:Walter Wangerin Jr. Master storyteller Walter Wangerin Jr. pens the historically accurate biblical tale of Naomi and Ruth in this riveting novel. Contemporary echoes of love, deceit, war, and political instability will resonate with readers today, while rich descriptions and gritty realism cast new light on the ancient narrative.
Interesting telling of the Old Testament's well-known story of Naomi and her beloved daughter in law, Ruth. Lots of cultural information about how the tribes of Israel gave birth, lived, went into battle, and died.
The back and forth in time from one chapter to the next could be a bit confusing, but a well-written tale none-the-less with thorough characterizations.
A must read for anyone interested in Women of the Old Testament.
