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

Rated 4.9 out of 5★ by 18reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by the truest love This is a good Christian read and an excellent book club selection for our women's group at church so don't let the title and cover make you wonder if its too risky. 10/31/2008
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good Read This has a good story line. The book held my attention and certainly portrayed the love and forgiveness of our Saviour. It was a very good romance, but I would hesitate to compare it with the book of Hosea. 07/09/2007
