—Andrea Raynor, The Alphabet of Grief

Naomi is the central character in the book of Ruth, but few books focus on her and retell her story from start to finish.
This book is different.
Her husband died, then her two sons. She is in shock. What she endures after that is worse than anyone can imagine. But can she recover and experience restoration? A kind and loving mother-in-law, she inspired great loyalty in her two daughters-in-law, both of whom she cared for, yet were not from Naomi’s birth land of Israel.
If we miss Naomi’s part in this remarkable account, then we overlook something of immense importance, for she played a major role in bringing about one of the greatest and most unlikely love stories of all time – the union between an Israelite called Boaz and a Moabitess named Ruth.
A must-read for anyone who has suffered significant loss and desires to recover all.

Now I know that every single day, the best and the worst, only lasts for twenty-four hours.”
—Tricia Lott Williford, And Life Comes Back
When your life falls apart—through a death, a lost relationship, a diagnosis—you want more than anything to know that your pain has a purpose. And that beyond your pain, a new day awaits.
Tricia Lott Williford discovered this in a few tragic hours when her thirty-five-year-old husband died unexpectedly. In And Life Comes Back, she writes with soaring prose about her tender, brave journey as a widow with two young boys in the agonizing days and months that followed his death.
And Life Comes Back documents the tenacity of love, the exquisite transience of each moment, and the laughter that comes even in loss. This traveler’s guide to finding new life after setbacks offers no easy answers or glib spiritual maxims but instead draws you into your own story and the hope that waits for you even now.
