"Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers (1997) - REVIEW

First of all I would like to wish a very big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Sister Lydia!! Check out her blog Style Independent as I'm sure she will have a brilliant birthday outfit to share!

Goodday and welcome to
"The B.B. Weekly Review"

Back Cover Blurb:
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 Hosea 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 come 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 can no longer deny: Her final healing must come from the One who loves her even more than Michael Hosea does…the One who will never let her go.  A life-changing story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love. Over 1 million copies sold!

 I loved this book! It was absolutely beautiful, heart wrenching, soul cleansing...and so much more! This book truly shows the beauty of God's redeeming love! I sobbed throguh at least half of the book, laughed and audibly panicked throughout the rest. A wonderful read that was worth every minute. This novel will make you think about your life, but more importantly, the lives of those around you. Who are you condemning unjustly? This is the retelling of the story of Hosea, the Old Testament Bible Prophet. Definite recommendation, although the subject matter is for a more mature audience.

My Rating: 5/5
