About Unbound 

Ruthie Adrian loves ranch life with her handsome husband, Mac and his family. But her fading hope for a child dissolves when Mac is killed in a crash along with his brother and father.
Added to their heartbreak, Ruthie and her mother-in-law, Naomi now face rejection by her sister-in-law, and impossible barriers as they try to protect their land.
Jake, a self-styled prophet steps up with a bizarre offer. A Godsend or a trap?
With raw grief, unexpected humour, and life-giving grace, Unbound is a modern twist on a timeless tale of the unique bond between two widows who harbour a few secrets of their own.



In this loosely retelling of the story of Naomi and Ruth, author Eleanor Bertin does a really nice job of capturing my attention, with characters I grew to love and respect. Of course this version is the authors and her imagination of how it could have been back in that historical time. I always love reading Biblical fiction because it gives me ideas of how it was and it brings the story to life in my mind.

For some reason I had a hard time getting into the story, but then all of the horrific drama begins and it goes pretty fast. I wanted to get to the end to see how the author would weave it altogether. And she did a nice job of ironing it all out and coming up with an ending I was expecting. My heart hurt for Ruthie Adrian, and I cried for her during some of the harder scenes to read. She liked her life just fine, and wanted a family with Mac, but the accident took care of that for her. There was so much hurting and heartache, the raw emotion that so told the feelings of this family. At times it was hard to read because it was so real, and these things happen every day all around us. My heart was breaking as I thought about several families I know who have gone through the same thing in the past several months. Ms. Bertin does an excellent job writing everything into this story it a way that feels real, the characters felt real. And God’s grace, love, forgiveness and the peace that only He can give was weaved throughout the story in everything these ladies had to endure.
