YL5 Stars Out Of 5Beautifully writtenSeptember 8, 2017YLQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is a wonderful version of the historic story of Hosea. The love that was shown through this book was a wonderful example of the love of our Heavenly Father. I loved reading it and it helped me see His love more clearly.
beckieAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5redeeming love reviewOctober 3, 2013beckieAge: 35-44Gender: femaleYou MUST read this book! "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers is the retelling of the Hosea and Gomer story (from the Bible) set in the 1850s in California. It looks like a sappy love story, it could have been a melodramatic Christian novel. But it is soooo not. It opens with Sarah meeting her father for the first time and being rejected. Her mother, a prostitute, basically chooses her father over Sarah. He later rejects the mother as well. Then at the ripe old age of 8, yes 8, she is sold into prostitution by her mother's drunken idiot boyfriend. The story then picks back up at Sarah (now working under the name Angel) being 18 at still a working girl. Michael then comes to rescue her whether she wants to be rescued or not. The two begin a wonderful, complex, intense and strange love story.
By the end of the first chapter this book has the reader completely trapped. I couldn't stop reading it. It is so well written. It doesn't pull any punches yet doesn't leave you feeling sick either. The characters are fabulous. I am only kicking myself for not reading it sooner. Read it. I received this book from Blogging for Books.
jelysnoAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5More than I expected!October 23, 2012jelysnoAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Meets Expectations: 5I work at a Christian book store and see many titles of books and various authors that sound interesting. I hadn't thought too much about this one until I noticed that a large percentage of our customers buy this book. It really grabbed my attention knowing this book was 20 years old and we still have a hard time keeping it on the shelf. I finally broke down and read it. I was hooked by the first few pages. Very well written. The characters are believable and the setting is perfect. I was amazed at how well Francine Rivers told the story of Hosea and Gomer in a western scene. I love old westerns and this was a perfect match. I would highly recommend this book!

It is emotional in every sense. And the moral of the story which is forgiveness in God is something that we all can relate to.
