Destitute, grief-stricken, and unwanted by the people of God, Ruth arrives in Israel with nothing to recommend her but Naomi’s love. Her loftiest hope is to provide enough food to save Naomi and herself from starvation. But God has other plans for her life. While everyone considers Ruth an outcast, she is astounded to find one of the most honored men of Judah showing her favor. Long since a widower and determined to stay that way, Boaz is irresistibly drawn to the foreign woman with the haunted eyes. He tells himself he is only being kind to his cousin Naomi’s chosen daughter when he goes out of his way to protect her from harm, but his heart knows better. Based on the biblical account of Ruth, In the Field of Grace is the story of a love that ultimately changes the course of Israel’s destiny and the future of the whole world.

Quotes & Awards

  • “I was hooked from the first page. This is an amazing book. The biblical story came alive as the love of Ruth and Boaz unfolded. I devoured the book, reading late into the night.”

    Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Afshar writes unforgettable biblical fiction. Here she’s taken the beloved Naomi and developed her family into its fullness. Naomi and Ruth adhere to the God of Judah, and there are distinct indicators in Afshar’s writing that reflect her research of the Old Testament’s cultural norms. Having to endure the hardships of grief brings together a lively and lovely cast of characters.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)

  • In the Field of Grace tackles another well known and oft told Biblical story, that of Ruth the Moabite, who became part of the lineage of King David and Jesus Christ. Once again, Tessa’s seemingly effortless talent breathes new life into this beautiful love story and makes it come alive. With vivid imagery and impeccable descriptions the land of Judah, Boaz’s fields, the protagonists in this story, Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz, all leap from the page. The sights and smells of the countryside, the bitterness of Naomi, the devotion of Ruth, and the heroics of Boaz are told with insight, tenderness, and authenticity—as much as a twenty-first century author can imagine of years gone by!”
