It takes place in hard times, as most good love stories do, but the hard times are overshadowed by the goodness of God who, by implication, is orchestrating His favor toward those who are faithful to Him.

No calamity is beyond His ability to reclaim with His goodness. In Naomi, we see someone who had given up find a rewarding place in the eternal plan. In Ruth, we see a foreigner who would be scorned in normal conditions become an integral part of the people of God, simply by showing admirable loyalty and love in an every-man-for-himself era. In Boaz, we see a man with no heirs being given a new bride, a new family, and a fresh start in life.
