From the Author
- I knew an old preacher (Homer Hailey) who said that he believed that God had a Boaz (a good man) for every Ruth (a good woman). This was the idea behind this story, of a woman who did not realize her own value, until she went searching for her Boaz.
- I really felt sorry for Gage, who had every girl fall for him except the one he wanted. She even had a dog fierce enough to keep everyone away.
