Redeeming Love ~ Francine Rivers

LOVE THIS BOOK!!  God is all over this book.  From the minute I picked it up I could not put it down until I finished it.  I am an avid fan of Francine Rivers and this has to be my favorite from her.
This is the story of unconditional love between a husband and wife.  The story of Angel, who was sold into prostitution and has felt nothing but hurt from men.  Michael is a farmer and Godly man, he is called from GOD to marry Angel and does.  Angel does not understand his love and feels he is only nice to her because he wants something.  Michael will not give into her hatefulness and heartache that her actions cause him.  You will laugh, cry, hate Angel, feel sorry for Michael, wonder why does Michael put up with Angel, pray and not want to put this down to the very end.  Between the two characters you will be thinking of your own circumstances that you have gone through with GOD and makes you think.  

This book is based on the book of the bible Hosea.  I guarantee when you get done, or even before that you will be intrigued to read this book in the bible.  The book also includes a six part reading study in the back of the book, you can do this in a group or by yourself.  I recommend this book to everyone!!  READ THIS ONE you will wish you had read this a long time ago.
