Less Than a Widow


Kathleen Evenhouse paints a rich picture of the traditions and trials of ancient womanhood as she skillfully brings new life into the ageless account of the biblical Ruth. In the patriarchal culture of the ancient Middle East, Ruth was a social castoff—a widow without legal rights. Deeply affecting, Less than a Widow combines rich historical storytelling with a contemporary voice.
