Publisher's Description

A story of love that won't let go - no matter what!

California’s gold country, 1850. A time when men sold their souls for a bag of gold and women sold their bodies for a place to sleep. Angel expects nothing from men but betrayal. Sold into prostitution as a child, she survives by keeping her hatred alive. And what she hates most are the men who use her, leaving her empty and dead inside.  
 
Then she meets Michael Hosea, a man who seeks his Father’s heart in everything. Michael obeys God’s call to marry Angel and to love her unconditionally. Slowly, day by day, he defies Angel’s every bitter expectation, until despite her resistance, her frozen heart begins to thaw.  
 
But with her unexpected softening comes overwhelming feelings of unworthiness and fear. And so Angel runs. Back to the darkness, away from her husband’s pursuing love, terrified of the truth she no longer can deny: Her final healing must come from the One who loves her even more than Michael does…the One who will never let her go.  
 
A powerful retelling of the story of Gomer and Hosea, Redeeming Love is a life-changing story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love.

Includes a six-part reading group guide!

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.
    About the Book:

    Redeeming Love is the beautiful retelling of the Biblical account of the prophet Hosea and his prostitute wife, Gomer. Rivers chooses the mid-1800s gold rush period as the setting for the novel which lends itself nicely to the events unfolding in the plot. After suffering unspeakable horrors as a child after being sold into prostitution at the tender age of 8, Angel is bitter, hollow, and sees her only worth as what pleasure she can give a man. When Michael Hosea first sees her, he immediately feels the Holy Spirits nudging that he is to make her his wife. Wanting to follow Gods leading but perplexed as to why God would choose this woman, Michael rescues Angel from the brothel where she works and marries her. As they try to carve out a new life, Angel is constantly defying Michael bucking his attempts at creating some semblance of a marriage. She only sees herself as a prostitute, not as a woman deserving love. Michael remains consistent showing her patient, enduring love as he tries to open her eyes to the value she has as a child of God and as his wife. After multiple attempts at leaving Michael- and his repeated rescue of her- Angel finally leaves for good after realizing she has fallen in love with him but feeling he is deserving of a better wife. Brokenhearted at her final abandonment, Michael is left to trust God for her healing, her love, and the hope that she will one day return.

    My Thoughts:

    Redeeming Love can be considered one of the classics in Christian fiction because of the richness and depth found between its pages. Rivers does a fine job unfolding not only the love story between Michael and Angel, but also the story of Gods love for us, how He continually pursues us with an unrelenting love, and how only He can make us whole and complete. The novel is disturbing to read in many places as Rivers delves into the dark world of prostitution, rape, and incest (although it is not descriptive). However, as Michael and Angels marriage evolves, she also presents the beauty and purity of sex the way God originally intended it- between a husband and wife. Facing our past, forgiveness, commitment in marriage, and recognizing the boundless extent of Gods love for us grace the pages of this novel making it a must read!

    This review reflects an honest view of my own thoughts and opinions regarding this book. I have not been compensated by the publisher or author in any way.

    This review was written for Redeeming Love.
    When I was in high school a friend recommended that I read this book. Years had passed, and I randomly thought of that moment. I bought the book, and I could not put it down! It is now my favorite book of all time. I let a friend borrow it. Who in turn let her friend borrow it. Needless to say, it has been over a year and I have not received my book back. I am definitely going to repurchase this excellent work. I can not express how excellent of a read this is!!!! You will not regret purchasing this book!

    Good work Rivers!
