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!

    This review was written for Redeeming Love.
    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.

    I was hesitant to read this book because it looked like a cheesy romance novel, but I have to admit I couldn't put it down. Really a good story that kept my head in the pages for a week straight. I just finished it last night and I'm eager to pick up another Francine River's book.

    Francine Rivers is an excellent story teller; and this is a grand story. Ultimately, it is the picture of God's love for His people. It is a symbolic retelling of the story of Hosea in the Bible, which is history based on the fact of God's refusal to give up on us, His people. This book started a little slow, but once the background was put in place it really picked up and I (almost) could not put it down until I read the last page. It is very thick, very detailed and one big chunk of reading, but well worth it. With warm weather upon us, this is exactly the kind of book to sit down with a tall glass of iced tea and read on!
