What happens when fate links the destiny of a woman with Mennonite heritage to that of a Las Vegas cocktail waitress? Can two women from different backgrounds and generations, overwhelmed with life and loss, find healing for wounds once thought too deep to heal? Can modern paths, after leaving all that was good and true, ever truly lead home?

For Las Vegas widow Naomi, memories of a Pennsylvania Dutch childhood are an ache from the distant past, a painful memory of abandoned roots and lost connections. She has long since reconciled herself to the shattered dream of what had once enticed her from her heritage—a tiny apartment thick with loneliness and regret, the sad lives of her two sons, and her sole consolation: the friendship with her daughter-in-law Ruth. But when hard living claims both of Naomi’s boys, she and Ruth turn Naomi’s creaky Impala eastward in a desperate last-chance bid for hope and meaning. Thus begins the cross-country odyssey that brings Naomi home to her old farm in Lancaster County, and to the values and rhythms of a life once spurned. Having never seen the East before, can Ruth find a home here too, among the slow and authentic cadences of Pennsylvania farm country?

    " This is a modern day retelling of the book of Ruth from the Bible. Naomi and Ruth travel from Las Vegas, Nevada back to Naomi's hometown in Pennsylvania back to her Pennsylvania Dutch roots. The names of the characters that are mentioned in the Bible are either the same names are close to the same names, even Boaz. Both Ruth and Naomi find their way to God in this book. This is a good modernization of the Book of Ruth. There is even mention of Boaz's parents in the book which is similar to the story of Rahab in the Bible. "
