i love this book. It was recommended by my daughter in high school but i kept pushing it aside because the front cover did not interest me. Now its one of my favorite books. I think everyone can relate to it on some level. We must remember we are all worthy and that God's love is for everyone.
I have since read many of Francine Rivers books. They are excellent. I have learned so much history of the bible thru her words. It really helps explain the traditions and customs of those biblical days. And she also has more modern day books and characters. She is truly a gifted writer. If you read one of her books you will definitely want to read all of her books!!!
I started reading this book at 7pm, went out to dinner, supported a friend at 1 in the morning, and finally finished the book at 9am the next morning. Best book (other than the Bible) I've ever read. I'll never read another fiction as good.
I was hesitant to read this book because it looked like a cheesy romance novel, but I have to admit I couldn't put it down. Really a good story that kept my head in the pages for a week straight. I just finished it last night and I'm eager to pick up another Francine River's book.
