Redeeming Love Book Review-My Favorite Book!!!
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers is a love story that reaches out to all women from their teens to their 80's. The various facets of the love story give us all something we can relate to. This retelling of the book of Hosea takes us to California during the 1850's and captivates us with one man's devotion to God and the plan he has for his life. The call to marry Angel, a prostitute, is one that many would have turned running from and told the Lord that he was wrong. Michael struggled with where God was leading him but he never gave up on the plan God had for he and Angel. Her struggle to find her way to Heavenly Father and discover his unconditional love is one that will stay with you long after the story has ended. I first read this book on a Spring Break trip during college and for an entire day I couldn't tear myself away from this story. At nearly 500 pages you may be tempted to think it's too long but I promise if you will just start to read there will be no turning back.
