The book of Ruth is a wonderful short story. Many people throughout the ages have been touched by the sweetness and kindness so evident in the episode. People have been drawn to the book because it is a most beautiful love story. The book of Ruth has even been called an ancient ‘biblical Cinderella story' in which Ruth finds her true prince by the close of the tale. It is thus viewed almost as a rags-to-riches fairy tale.
