From the back cover: Noreen Hirsch loses everything including her husband and two sons. Then her adopted country goes to war with her homeland. Has God abandoned her? Rosa Hirsch barely adjusts to being a bride before she is widowed. She gives up her citizenship to accompany her mother-in-law to her home country. Can Rosa find acceptance among strangers who hate her belligerent nation? Basil Quincey is rich beyond his wildest dreams, but loneliness stalks him. Can he find a woman who loves him and not his money? Three people. One God who can raise hope from the ashes of despair
First there is historical fiction which this is. Then there is Biblical fiction which this also is. Set against the backdrop of World War II Ms. Matchett tells the story of Biblical Ruth. Noreen, Rosa and Basil are terrific characters that you just want to hang out with and learn all about. World War II was devastating and it takes quite a toll on our main characters. This is an emotionally satisfying story as God brings these three needy persons together to help each other, love each other and bring healing to each other. This is a story that you, simply, are not going to want to put down. Do not start this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will keep flipping pages as fast as you can read. Ms. Matchett does an outstanding job of bringing Rosa and Basil to life and you really want them to heal and to succeed. I recommend this book highly!
