Publisher's Description

Can God’s Love Save Anyone?

Best-selling author Francine Rivers skillfully retells the biblical love story of Gomer and Hosea in a tale set against the exciting backdrop of the California Gold Rush. The heroine, Angel, is a young woman who was sold into prostitution as a child. Michael Hosea is a godly man sent into Angel’s life to draw her into the Savior’s redeeming love. This remarkable novel has sold over a million copies globally and has been a fixture on the CBA bestsellers list for nearly a decade. A six-part reading guide, suitable for individual use or group discussion, is included in this best-selling novel.

Story Behind the Book

"Writing Redeeming Love was a form of worship for me. Through it, I was able to thank God for loving me even when I was defiant, rebellious, contemptuous of what I thought being a Christian meant, and afraid to give my heart away. I had wanted to be my own god and have control of my life the way Eve did in the Garden of Eden. Now I know to be loved by Christ is the ultimate joy and fulfillment. Everything in Redeeming Love was a gift from the Lord: plot, characters, theme. None of it is mine to claim."

Author Bio

From 1976 to 1985, Francine Rivers had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were awarded or nominated for numerous awards and prizes. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, mother of three, and an established romance novelist. Shortly after becoming a born-again Christian in 1986, Francine wrote Redeeming Love as her statement of faith. This retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea set during the time of the California Gold Rush is now considered by many to be a classic work of Christian fiction. Redeeming Love continues to be one of the Christian Booksellers Association’s top-selling titles, and it has held a spot on the Christian bestsellers list for nearly a decade.

Since Redeeming Love, Francine has published numerous novels with Christian themes--all bestsellers--and she has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her Christian novels have also been awarded or nominated for numerous awards, including the RITA Award, the Christy Award, and the ECPA Gold Medallion. In 1997, Francine was inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. Francine’s novels have been translated into over twenty different languages, and she enjoys bestseller status in many foreign countries including Germany, The Netherlands, and South Africa.

Francine and her husband, Rick, live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their four grandchildren. She uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.

    This review was written for Redeeming Love.
    Wow. I didn't quite know what to expect from this book. I am the kind of reader that if the words on the first page don't capture me, the rest of it probably won't so I don't waste my time with it. That was not the case with this one. From the first page and then all the way through, I read this book carried away and up into the love story between Michael and Sarah (Angel, Amanda, Tirzah..? lol). I have 5 small children 2 years apart from 9 to 3 months and finished in what I would consider record time. Definitely a page turner and tear jerker and more than that, make you take inspection of your own soul while having the reminder of what Christ did on the cross and how He loves us. So thankful for this book (I didn't want it to end!) and I am currently looking for another book or series of hers to start! Buy this book. You will not regret it!

    Love the Lord your God, and love one another.

    Love the Lord your God, and love one another. Love one another as He loves. Love with strength and purpose and passion and no matter what comes against you. Dont weaken. Stand against the darkness, and love. Thats the way back into Eden. Thats the way back to life.

    I know, I know, everyone has read this book and I am well behind the times. Redeeming Love was one of those books that moved me, deeply. You know the type, when going through your day and you can only think about the next time you'll be able to pick it up and continue the story; the one you race to finish, but immediately want it to continue long after finishing, that was this book for me.

    For those who haven't read this book yet, let me give you a brief synopsis. The story was adapted from the Bible story of Hosea and the prostitute, Gomer, whom God told Hosea to marry (Hosea 1:2-3).

    In Redeeming Love, the two main characters are Michael Hosea and Angel. The plot, set in 1850 California, essentially has many different levels and conflicts: Angel's hate/love for herself, Angel's hate of men, Michael's love for Angel, Michael's love for God, God's love for Angel and Michael, Angel's love and yearning for freedom, Angel's love for Michael, and eventually Angel's love for God. These struggles in varying degrees are woven seamlessly together.

    I will forewarn, prepare, whatever you want to call it, that the first chapter was really tough for me to read, almost to the point that I wanted to put the book down and never pick it up again, and if you decide to read it you will certainly understand exactly what I'm talking about. However, I decided to scan forward to see how much longer I'd have to endure the rest of the chapter and was relieved to see it didn't last much longer. Upon completing the book, I realized the beginning, however uncomfortable it made me, was crucial to the tone of the rest of the story in its entirety and helps the reader to understand why the main character, Angel, thinks and feels the way she does. Some instances I would gauge as "PG-13" according to today's ratings, however if it were my personal standards I would say "R", definitely adult considering prostitution is intertwined within the entirety of the story.

    The message behind the narrative is what really hit home for me, which is God's constant pursuit of our attention and love, while we put him off or turn a deaf ear. "Love the Lord your God, and love one another. Love one another as He loves. Love with strength and purpose and passion and no matter what comes against you. Don't weaken. Stand against the darkness, and love. That's the way back into Eden. That's the way back to life" (Redeeming Love).

    Overall, this was a fairly long book but was such a fast read because it truly piqued my interest on an emotional, spiritual, and mental level. It impacted me.

    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!!!
