When famine hits Bethlehem, Boaz holds out hope for rain while his relative Elimelech moves his wife Naomi and their sons to Moab. It appears that the Lord is blessing Elimelech’s family as his sons marry two lovely Moabite women. But calamities strike, one after another, leaving Naomi alone in a foreign land with only her childless daughters-in-law for comfort.
When news reaches Naomi that the famine has lifted, her daughter-in-law Ruth will hazard the journey with her to Bethlehem. While Naomi resigns herself to a life of bitter poverty, Ruth holds out hope for a better future. And Boaz may be the one God has chosen to provide it.
