So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess her daughter-in-law who returned with her out of the country of Moab. And they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest. Bible

“So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess her daughter-in-law.” This is a summary statement, not a sequel. Summary statements are common in the Bible, and this one adds the information about the barley harvest.

“in the beginning of barley harvest.” This is the time of the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. It generally occurs in our month of April.
