My sister read Redeeming Love while in High School. She raved about it and offered it to me. I looked at the cover and at how thick the volume was and decided that I didn't have time. About 5 years later, I visited her and her husband at their home in Florida. My sister had the guest room set up beautifully for our stay and laying in a chair in our room was a copy of Redeeming Love that she had purchased for me. Older, wiser, and with a bit more time on my hands, I immediately began the novel and finished it on our 12 hour ride home. Redeeming Love is a timeless story that has truly stolen my heart and will forever be a favorite of mine.
Michael Hosea and Angel have a relationship that is clearly destined for failure. Angel's life has been way too tragic for her to be able to function in a healthy marriage. Michael is too naive to be a good, realistic husband. But God is faithful and He is able to perform miracles if we will only accept His love and forgiveness and step out in obedience to Him. Sometimes, it's the darkness and evil of this world that make it truly clear how good and how real our God is. This book is simply amazing.
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.
