This was incredibly well written. Loved it. Ruth is probably my favorite person in the Bible. Great job!

Talent indeed! A well crafted piece. Eloquent recounting of a familiar biblical story.
"And though the early-morning chill hints of winter, in her eyes I see the hope of spring."
One example, among many, of masterful imagery, and a perfect fit for a concluding line.

At first I thought this was going to be a story of pioneers coming west. Then I found it interesting how timeless the story of seeking a better place for your family is.

I love a good "fleshed out" Bible story. Good job showing us Naomi process through her winter season of life.

Your use of "back-story" in the middle was so very effective. [I'm sure there's a technical name for it, but I don't know it.] Your words sing [and glide, and warm] in this story. I love it!

Your final sentence gave me a thrill akin to what I feel when reading the literary greats. Wonderfully crafted.

Beautifully written, bringing to life the story of Ruth and Naomi. I like the way you show the character of Ruth, and her willingness to work and glean among the reapers. It is so befitting. Enjoyed the read.
