"New York Times" bestselling author Francine Rivers had a successful writing career in the general market for several years before becoming a born-again Christian. As her statement of faith, she wrote "Redeeming Love," a retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea set during the time of the California Gold Rush. "Redeeming Love" is now considered by many to be a classic work of Christian fiction and it continues to be one of the industry’s top-selling titles year after year. Since "Redeeming Love," Francine has published numerous novels with Christian themes—all bestsellers—and she has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the world. Her Christian novels have been awarded or nominated for many honors, and in 1997, after winning her third RITA Award for Inspirational Fiction, Francine was inducted into the Romance Writers of America’s Hall of Fame. In 2015, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award from American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW). Francine’s novels have been translated into over thirty different languages, and she enjoys bestseller status in many foreign countries. Francine and her husband live in northern California and enjoy time spent with their grown children and grandchildren. She uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and she desires that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.

This is a very short book with beautiful pencil sketches, personal stories, and recipes from the author. I enjoyed the sweet story about the little boy and his box of ¨things.¨ I´m looking forward to trying the recipes too.

One of the most beautiful stories I have ever read! This is a must read, and although it is Christian fiction, I think anyone could come away from it learning some truthful life lessons. Being a Christian myself, I found it to be one of the finest examples of God's love and mercy. Highest recommen...

Quick review for a progressive read. I read this over the course of a week, and it feels like I finished a marathon (in a good way). "Redeeming Love" came as a recommended read to me and it's my first experience reading Francine Rivers. If there's something to be said about her writing, Rives really...
