The book trailer for this week is from Marlene Banks for her historical novel Ruth’s Redemption.
This is a different kind of slave era story; one that will engage the reader spiritually, humanly and romantically from beginning to end.
Ruth has known nothing but servitude and brutality since being separated from her mother at age thirteen. Purchased and sold primarily for breeding, her heart is hardened and overcome with bitterness.
Bo was educated while a slave then given his freedom as his master’s will instructed. Now he owns a farm and buys slaves to grant them freedom. A man of God and widower, Bo’s life is characterized by an unwavering faith and obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ. When God instructs him to purchase Ruth, both their lives are forever changed.
Ruth has never known a man like Bo. She wants freedom from slavery, from men and from her past. She is drawn to Bo but not to his Godly devotion. Bo is unwillingly attracted to Ruth. Can their relationship and love push through the personal and cultural hardships? Does love really heal all wounds? A gripping novel, Ruth’s Redemption is a story of love, forgiveness, and redemption. Surrounding the events of the Nat Turner Rebellion the light of God’s unconditional love shines into the darkness of a woman’s heart, a man’s violent mission and a culture’s cruel and socially accepted inhumanity.
