Betty and I sat next to each other at book tables and decided to exchange our books with each other. She is a lovely writer who helps you see the actions, sense the underlying emotions, and hear each voice. Her book kept me staying up for "just one more chapter" before going to bed each night.
Set in the 1950s, Annabelle Cross and her two daughters-in-law, Emily and Connie wait expectantly for their men folk to return from a fishing trip. The lovely aroma of chocolate cake wafts through the air as momma Annabelle is putting the finishing touches on the cake. Emily joyfully sings as she awaits her husband’s return, but Connie, Joseph’s wife can’t banish the dark foreboding that threatens her secret joy.
With the news that all three beloved men had been lost at sea, the women were devastated. Annabelle made the difficult choice to sell their home and return to her family in Tennessee. The girls would return to their parents. Connie rejects this decision and begs to follow Annabelle. Many times during the story, Connie, who was raised in Hawaii to a family that worshipped pagan Gods, feared for their future. Annabelle’s faith never waivers and in time, Connie too trusts in God’s provenance to not only provide for their physical needs but for her future as well.
In full disclosure, Annabelle's Ruth was a finalist in the Grace Awards and I was provided a free copy of this book
to fulfill my duties as a judge.
I found the book to be historically correct. I enjoyed reminiscing about my own childhood, and stories from my mother and father.
It is so nice to get lost in the lives of the book's characters without reading profanity and sexual innuendos.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. In the meantime, I'm going to check out one of Betty Thomason Owens' other books.
Connie loves her mother-in-law, and can't bare to lose her as well. She follows Annabelle to her family in Tennessee, but as a Hawaiian, she isn't easily accepted by many.
This beautiful story is told gently and thoughtfully--trademark of Betty's writing. Readers of women's fiction will enjoy this one.
As the title indicates, this is a modern day retelling of the story of Ruth. The Naomi character is named Annabelle, and the Ruth character is Connie. That's the overall story, but in the details this is a story about relationships. Connie's love for her mother-in-law, her love for her husband and unborn child, and her growing love for another man.
I've read several of Owens' books, and I think this is the best.
