A Timeless, Beautiful Allegory of the Biblical Love Story of Ruth and Boaz
The Great Rebellion of 1857 was a remarkably bloody business. At a time when Britain’s imperial influence in India was sparking brutal clashes on both sides, no one could have expected Rena, an Indian woman, to marry a British officer—nor do they understand her decision to follow her mother-in-law to England after her husband’s tragic death. 

Once the two widows are in Abbotsville, the stern yet compassionate Lord Barric attempts to help them despite his better judgment. Soon he is torn between the demands of reputation and his increasing desire to capture Rena’s heart for his own.

Praise For Shadow among Sheaves

“A stunning retelling of Ruth that will hold you captive until the last page.”
–Roseanna M. White, bestselling author of the Ladies of the Manor and Shadows Over England Serie

“When all the exoticness of the Far East arrives in the quiet countryside of Victorian England, rumors abound—and so does love. Shadow among Sheaves is a fresh retelling of the story of Ruth that adds a whole new way to look at the Biblical account. Poetic prose. Strong Characters. And a drama that gets under your skin.”
–Michelle Griep, Christy Award-winning author of the Once Upon a Dickens Christmas series

“Set in 19th century England, Shadow among Sheaves is the tale of an Indian widow and her beloved mother-in-law. Amidst fear, self-sacrifice, and starvation, the young widow finds desperately needed assistance in the form of Lord Baric—an earl who soon finds himself torn between his reputation and his heart. Lovers of historical fiction will enjoy this elaborate retelling of Ruth and Boaz.” 
–Denise Hunter, bestselling author of On Magnolia Lane
