This novel is mainly a fictionalized expansion of the actual verses (italicized) of Judges 18-21 and all of Ruth. It goes from 11 years before Judges 18 at a fictionalized meeting between Naomi when she is 22 and when the woman mentioned in Judges 18 is 5 years old to all the way to Samuel 16 when Ruth's great grandson David is anointed to be the future 2nd king of Israel through whose line the Savior would be born. There are scripture quotations and histories interspersed in from the other books preceding Judges (from Genesis on wards) as well as poetic allusions to Psalms and Song of Solomon (Song of Songs). Using the plot device of Boaz wandering in a self inflicted exile pilgrimage of the lands surrounding the Israelites you get to know the origins of the other various Abrahamic connected people who neighbor the Israelites. Boaz also reflects on the Judaic traditions of his people as he visits the historical sites where events happened to precede such traditions. The whole book was a enlightening exposition on ancient Judaic traditions that they followed blindly to the letter of the law ignoring the spirit of the law which sometimes resulted in shocking tragic decisions and consequences. I read a heavily footnoted and extra study guide information paneled Bible printing of Judges 18 to 21 and Ruth before starting to read the novel because of the foreknowledge given in a prior review that the novel was based on those scriptures. This novel matched the verses, educational footnotes, and study guide panels of the Bible I read in storyline and Judaic traditions. The most shocking, profane, sexual, and violent parts of this novel that would seem most likely to be fictionalized were the very parts that came straight from the Old Testament (Tanakh) verses. Let's face it if the Old Testament (Tanakh) was made into a series of movies that closely followed the actual Bible then they would be rated R to X unfortunately. Some other reviewers mentioned profanity, but the only profanity I found was that the kin that was closer in relation to marry Ruth was a called a brass (profane word for backside) by the community and a (profane word for expulsion of gas from backside) by Naomi. The author could not have so accurately have followed the actual scriptures, and G rated Walt Disneyfied the story, but in chapter 42 through the voice of Naomi you understand why he doesn't. Naomi has decided as the Hakamah who passes on and records through oral tradition the history of God's people, the covenants God establishes with his people, and revelations made to this people, that the history "shall not be abridged" and "distorted, cowled in a consoling lie". I will paraphrase her argument. She decides that if she doesn't accurately describe the entire preceding events that caused the war between Israel and Benjamin, and the horrors done on both sides during the war (instead of romanticizing the war) that history can repeat itself. That if she doesn't show that bad things happen to relatively good Godly people, "that the present generation would always be baffled, would grow angry or frightened, because [the] torn bits of story could no longer embrace and name their [own] real, full, unhappy [life] experiences". That characters without some mortal weakness become legends that can be dismissed easily as not authentic "and become contemptible in the eyes of the enlightened". These false histories than make "God himself, the true God...considered to be [only] ancient empty ritual" and "that without hard histories...there would be no [God] and all the people would do what was right in their own eyes".

I've read other books by Wangerin, my favorite being "The Book of God". This is an excellent look at what the life of Naomi, Boaz and Ruth might have been like. We know nothing about them except from the book of Ruth and the genealogies of Jesus. Yet I found the continual shifting from one time frame to another confusing and slowed the flow of the story. Wangerin uses lots of Scripture and I like that, usually in italics when quoting directly, but also in the flow of the text if you know your Bible well. I recommend this book.

In his powerful and original retelling of the story in the book of Ruth, National Book Award winner Wangerin gives Ruth's mother-in-law Naomi, portrayed in the biblical story mainly as an unsympathetic character, embittered by tragedy and grief, a back story and a character that explains and justifies Ruth's devotion to her. The character of Boaz, the man who befriends Ruth and Naomi in their impoverished widowhood, is also given motivation and a past.

Moving back and forth over some thirty years, Wangerin never loses control of his narrative and paints a portrait of an entire society, effortlessly weaving in other biblical stories and poetry from the Psalms and the Song of Songs, particularly through the chants and musings of Naomi, who is portrayed as a hakamah, a wise woman, healer and storyteller in her native village of Bethlehem.

Naomi and her Daughters is sure to deepen any reader's appreciation of the book of Ruth and the world in which it is set.

Yet another take on this age-old story, but the best I've ever read. Good visuals of life as it must have been back then.

I loved this book. I found it to be mostly accurate according to the Bible. I enjoyed and understood the description of Naomi who wanted to be renamed "Bitter" after the death of her husband and sons as well as her strength as a wise woman and leader before and after. The story goes back in Naomi's past and forward into her present, weaving a tapestry of beauty and romance that ends with Ruth and Boaz. If you enjoy the story of Ruth in the bible, you will enjoy this book. Caveat.. as in the book of Ruth, the descriptions of war are graphic.

Loved this retelling of a familiar story. Wangerin is a true artist.

Entertwining stories from the books of Judges and Ruth, Wangerin again brings scripture to full life in Naomi and Her Daughters . Another good one.
Very good...putting meat on the characters make easier to understand.
