Product Description

Hosea has been charged by God with a difficult task--marry a prostitute in order to show God's people the nature and depth of his love for Israel. When Hosea goes to Israel to proclaim God's message, the prostitute God tells him to marry turns out to be his childhood friend Gomer. He finds her broken and abused, unwilling to trust Hosea or his God. But when marrying Hosea becomes her only choice, Gomer does what she's good at--she survives. Can Hosea's love for God and God's love for Israel heal Gomer's broken spirit?

    The back cover of Love in a Broken Vessel describes this story as an epic journey of intimacy, rejection, betrayal and Hope and that describes this novel perfectly. If you are a fan of Biblical fiction, you will not be disappointed. Mesu Andrews is a master at weaving a story using scripture from books of the Bible, in this case, the book of Hosea. She skillfully researches scripture including research on how the people lived, dressed, what they ate, where they lived, how women were treated, and this just adds to her storytelling . She also includes a family tree to help you understand the familial relationships. Your heart will break for Gomer as she repeatedly feels abandoned and goes back to the only way of life that makes her feel in control. Will she find love in the end and how does God finally get her attention? You may have read the book of Hosea in the Bible but Love in a Broken Vessel brings this story of restoration to life. A definite must-read!

    "Love in a Broken Vessel" is a powerful read, one that breathes with historical authenticity and heart-rending emotion, and has left me contemplating the vast love of God. Mesu Andrews does a fantastic job at bringing to life the story of the prophet Hosea, called by God to love a prostitute as a display of God's love for his chosen people of Israel. The characters are richly drawn, with much about them to admire while still definitely showing their human side as well. Gomer is a woman that you will quickly grow to care about, even as you may find yourself shaking your head at some of her actions and her often hard-heart. I love the author's portrayal of the various prophets you meet in this story, from Hosea to Jonah to Isaiah, and I can honestly say that I have gained a deeper appreciation of the cost that they paid to honor God's calling on their lives. I found myself asking if I could ever be as bold as they were, sharing God's message to a king who could strike them dead, telling people to turn back to God even if that may end up costing them their lives. I was not only fully entertained by this story, but I was challenged in my faith as well - and that makes for a worthy novel indeed.

    Biblical fiction doesn't get better than this! I award this book a rating of 5 out of 5 stars.

    *Love In A Broken Vessel by Mesu Andrews

    Choices are made every day, sometimes good ones and sometimes bad ones. Two abbas (fathers) make choices that have far reaching effects on their children and their futures as well as those around them. One abba and his son, Hosea move to Tekoa and Hosea attends the prophet school and becomes a prophet. The other abba sells his daughter, Gomer at age 12 to the temple of the gods in Israel and is abused and eventually sold as a prostitute.

    The prophet Hosea is commanded by Yahweh to marry a prostitute and have children with her to show

    God's people how much Yahweh loves Israel. Hosea sets out for Israel not knowing who God will direct him to marry. Arriving in Israel, Hosea seeks the prostitute Yahweh has picked for him to marry and finds his childhood friend Gomer. Gomer has no plans to marry Hosea or serve Yahweh. Struggling over the years by the choices they, Gomer and Hosea, have made affect not only their relationship, the children but many family and friends.

    I like the picture of how much Yahweh (God) loves Israel and the lengths He goes to get the attention of His people to share that love with them. Not all the choices His people made were good choices, a lot were really bad choices. We get a glimpse of a few of those lives and the struggles they went through in Love In A Broken Vessel. Even though Gomer's life was a broken vessel (shattered even) Yahweh took that brokenness and redeemed it making her whole, like new. Hosea learned many things regarding loving his wife unconditionally just as Yahweh loves His people unconditionally.

    I found parts of the book hard to read, almost skimmed over them at times as the book was a little long for me and repetitive. But as a whole, the book was very well written.

    Recently I won a copy of Love In A Broken Vessel from Goodreads_.*I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

    Love in a Broken Vessel is the story of the prophet Hosea and his wife, Gomer. Mesu's research and knowledge of the time and setting of the novel is vast. In her introduction, she points out where she strays or adds to the Biblical narrative in order to flesh out the story, but she always remains true the facts of what the Bible says.

    As a matter of fact, Mesu Andrews is one of the few authors who earns my "Enraptured Award"! It took me three days, because of my busy schedule, to read through Love in a Broken Vessel. During those three days, my thoughts rarely strayed from the story as I thought about what had happened up to that point and what was to come. Never did I turn to the back to find out what happens, as I was simply too deeply entrenched in the story itself and I longed to watch it as it unfolded.

    Mesu's writing is beyond excellent: Enough detail to put the reader firmly in Israel and Judea, but not so much as to distract from the story itself; the characters are true to themselves always, which is a really big deal for me as a reader; over and over, I was overwhelmed with the idea that not only is the story of Hosea and Gomer a cautionary tale for the Israelites (and for us today), *but it really happened*. I came away from reading this novel, as I did with Mesu's first two, with an overwhelming desire to read the Bible with fresh eyes and really understand the people behind the words that have become so familiar to me.

    There aren't many novels that can do that, now are there?

    Love in a Broken Vessel earns 5 stars. I received Love in a Broken Vessel at no cost via NetGalley in return for an honest review. My thoughts are my own.

    Mesu Andrews does a beautiful job with this biblical fiction book about Gomer and Hosea. Love In a Broken Vessel is a book you will miss after the last page is turned. The key word is obedience. Obedience to God even when everything around you does not make sense. This is a beautiful story of how no matter how broken we are, God can still use us. We may carry the scares forever, but it will also be our testimony of God's faithfulness.

    This is a book I believe is definitely worth placing on your "Must Read" list.
