She was born to a king and was designated to temple service, but she is secretly terrified of the statues she is to serve for the rest of her life.

Can Uncle Abram's God, the one with no image, save her from this fate?

It is an ancient rabbinic belief that Ruth was one of the many daughters of the Moabite king. I have used that as the tenet for weaving a tale of a concubine's daughter designated to temple service in keeping with the tradition of a king's daughter in the ancient near east. There is just one major problem with this royal assignment-the images of the gods deeply disturb the young princess. It is more than mere disturbance; Ruth secretly loathes being around the statues. They terrify her. Then one day, she reads about the God her ancestor served, a God with no image. In those same scrolls, she reads about a friend of that God, a man named Abram.

My readers will see Ruth's journey from conscripted servant to the gods of Moab to freewill worshipper of the God of Israel.
