Book Review: Redeeming Love

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!

My Review:
My sister has been trying to get me to read this book for years.  I have had her book sitting around in my house waiting for me to read it so when the chance came for me to get my own copy I jumped on it.  I finally read the book and absolutely loved it!  It is definitely a book I will now recommend to every woman.  The book is so much more than a romance novel.  It is a story about God's completely perfect love for us even through all of our brokenness.  It is such a wonderful reminder of this and all while you get to read such an enjoyable book.
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
