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.

Editorial Reviews

"The truth that ran through that story [Redeeming Love] absolutely took me to my knees. And I was a changed person when I finished reading that book. "
- Amy Grant, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter

"A splendid piece of work exploring both physical love and a love of God...There is not one false note in this wonderful novel."
- Library Journal

"Simply put, Redeeming Love is the most powerful work of fiction you will ever read."
- Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Thorn in My Heart

"The timeless biblical themes...are beautifully portrayed and brought to life through her unforgettable characters."
- Stephen Arterburn, best-selling author of The Everyman Series

- Angela Hunt, author of Magdalene

    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.

    This review was written for Redeeming Love.
    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.

    This was such an enjoyable and sweet love story. It was such a wonderful read that I haven't found books of the same category near as enjoyable since readying Redeeming Love.
