Excellent re-telling of this familiar story!

The title threw me a bit--I expected it to be a modernization of the story for the internet age. Consider changing the title, perhaps?

You had some great descriptive phrases, very pleasant to read.
This is one of my favorite Bible stories and I enjoyed the way you brought Naomi to life. Great last paragraph too!
I love the story of Ruth and Naomi, and you have done a wonderful job in the retelling from Naomi's POV.
This read to well, I wanted more.

Your last line is a teaser for more....maybe other topics will lend to another story in this lineage...

Loved Naomi's voice throughout!
You did an excellent job of telling this story from Naomi's viewpoint.
