What a wonderful retelling of the biblical story of Ruth and Boaz. The setting of Victorian England and the colonization of India was an excellent choice. The one thing I disliked was the character, Barric, who was the equivalent of Boaz. I just didn’t like him at all. But if you go into the story understanding that there are not perfect equivalents of every characters from the bible. However, the racial and religious issues that are presented are similar to what Naomi and Ruth would have experienced.
