Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astounding River's beautiful writing tells a tale reminiscent of that of Hosea and Gomer in the Bible.  The subject matter could be erotic and explicit but she is able to give you a clear taste of everything down and dirty without crossing that line of decency.  She does a fine balance in this work.  I LOVED it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Redeeming Love! Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers Having given my life to Christ in my teenage years I have vowed not to read circular books in terms of books that will not enhance my life as a believer. So I began to search for interesting writers that would keep me glued as well as teach me what I needed to enhance my growth as a young Christian. I have read so many books but none can be compared to the “Redeeming Love” written by Francine Rivers, I ran into an old friend who was clutching on to the book, I got curious and wanted to know what type of book she was reading, she said it’s a must read!. Long story short, I borrowed the book from her and it changed my philosophy about forgiveness and the greatest love a human can give to another human. Redeeming love is the kind of love story that will keep you turning page after page, as I read it, the love of God began to run through my mind, I began to see how I would backslide from my faith and His unconditional love will bring me back to Him. The love Michael had for Angel is clearly compared to the kind of love God has for us, God was able to let Jesus die for our sins because of the love He has for us, despite all what Angel did in the story, Michael still took her back (I found that annoying but then I thought about how God must feel whenever I go back to my sins). Francine portrayed what real married love should look like and the contrasts between happiness and sadness, truth and lies, it’s a must read for everyone especially people who are planning on getting married.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Time Favorite This is one of my all time favorites, no matter how many times I read the book I'll find new aspects to the love between God and Man and Husband and Wife. Francine Rivers knows how to capture your attention and make you a part of the story. Careful this read will make you laugh and require tissues!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Book Ever! Mostly I read mystery but someone gave me this to read and I fell in love with this book. I thought I wouldn't enjoy the book because it had a religious plot, but I was pleasently surprised! In all the years I have been reading, this is my favorite book. My husband came home to find me sobbing over this book. I don't think I talked to anyone for three days until I finished the book. You will not be disappointed. Whether you go to church or not...you will love this book. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This is a retelling, of sorts, of the Biblical story of Hosea and Gomer. In the book, a man, Michael Hosea, who lives in the time of the California gold rush, falls in love with a prostitute, named Angel. She had been sold into prostitution as a child. He redeems her, marries her, and begins to show her sacrificial love. She has been used her whole life and takes a long time to learn to trust him and see that he is different from other men. He is an exceptional man. Over time, she begins to fall in love with him, but doesn't feel worthy of his love. She runs away several times, sometimes back to the brothel. It's a beautiful, tender love story. Even the descriptions of the seedy side of the story are not graphic or crude, but you still see the reality of what she endured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely Amazing! I read this book for the first time when I was in grade nine, over eight years ago. Since then, I have read hundreds of books by top authors and recommended by top critics, but I always come back to Redeeming Love. In the past seven years I have read this at least half a dozen times each year and I still cannot put it down. This book has become apart of me. Francine makes me cry and weep, and then I turn the page and smile through my tears and laugh through my sobs. Francine has inspired me to shed my judgments, my pride, my envy, and my hatred in search of understanding and forgiveness for all. This book has not just inspired my faith but has brought me closer to God, and each time I read it, I feel cleansed. I feel renewed. I recommend this book to everyone, whether you have faith or not. Francine Rivers is a timeless author who's work in Christian writing will never be matched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best of the Best! I usually stick to my beloved Karen Kingsbury books, but my friend had recommended The Atonement Child which I absolutely loved! After reading one of Francine Rivers' books, I decided to try another, so I ordered Redeeming Love. This is by far, the BEST book in history. It is a story of love, between a couple, between friends, and from God. It is a beautiful story, one I will always remember and will probably read again and again. Don't be scared by how long the book is, once you start reading it, you'll want it to go on forever. The story has it's hard parts, ones that will make you cry, but also parts that will make you laugh and parts that you will feel like you're feeling exactly what Angel/Sarah is feeling. I would reccommend this book to ANYONE. I promise you will love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing book. although one or two parts are very hard to read about, overall this book is amazing. The parable to the bible's book of Hosea was very amazing, and so close to what the bible says too. I loved the characters and the love that they share in the end. Could not put this down...read it in three days!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new way to look at Hosea This book was recommended to me by a close friend who knew that I wasn't the most avid of readers! I took a look at the size of the book (400+ pages) and thought my friend must be crazy. I did decide to sit down and read it, and soon after discovered that I couldn't put it down. I have been a Christian for a long time and have never really understood the book of Hosea until reading about the Love and passion of our saviour though this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Book I have ever read I am a 20 year old University student. My aunt sent me this book. At first I thought that it was going to be very preachy and boring. But I was wrong. In my 20 years of life I have read thousands of books and this was the best. I was stressed out after a hard semester at school and I wanted to feel touched by something. It was the first book that I ever cried while reading. It is definitly a book that everyone should read. It is not just for the faithfull but for the faithless. You may not beleive in god but after reading this book you will belive in yourself. I promise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!!! Unbeleivable! I thought at first it would be really boring and girly but when i finished this 400 plus page book in 3 days, I realized it was probably the best book ive read in a very long time. It was well beyond excellant. It was phenomanal. Ill never judge a book by it's cover or title again!
