Afraid of losing the only person left who loves her, Faith follows her widowed mother-in-law to a new home. But God has plans for Faith...plans that include a new love, hope, and a future.

Can Faith open her bruised and hurting heart to allow a loving God and a loving man back in?

5 roses Review:

What a beautiful, contemporary retelling of the biblical story of Ruth.

The gentleness and innocence of the developing relationship between Ben and Faith is so heartwarming. And their shared heartache and loss rings so true. What a wonderful touch, Ms. Stahel has of wringing emotion from her characters, drawing the reader in.

I loved the innocence of their courtship, and the way the relationship mirrors the blooming of a garden.

This story brought tears to my eyes several times. I love it when a story touches me that deeply - especially in so few pages!

What a lovely story! I'll be sure to look for more of her writing. Well done!
