About the Book
Added to their heartbreak, Ruthie and her mother-in-law, Naomi now face rejection by her sister-in-law, and impossible barriers as they try to protect their land.
Jake, a self-styled prophet steps up with a bizarre offer. A Godsend or a trap?
With raw grief, unexpected humour, and life-giving grace, Unbound is a modern twist on a timeless tale of the unique bond between two widows who harbour a few secrets of their own.
In My Opinion
Unbound was my introduction to Eleanor Bertin, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. This book is set in the Canadian countryside with three women from one family as the main focus.
Bertin tells a story of the damage keeping secrets does both internally and in relationships. It’s a story of loss and making the difficult choices set before us at times. And it’s a picture of forgiveness, healing, and grace.
While getting into the story challenged me at first, I’m glad I stuck with it. Faith, family, friendships, and all that goes with them are where the heart of Unbound lies.
