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!

I’m not into reading romance novels, and this is, to my memory, the first I’ve ever read. The only reason I read it was because it was recommended to me. To my surprise, I actually quite enjoyed this book. There were some details I didn't favor, but overall it was a beautiful, brutally honest story ...
Just...let me catch my breath! An emotional, wild ride! My all time favorite book! Amazingly told story with lovable characters, realistic events, and heart pounding fast paced action! Five stars and two thumbs up!!! I first read this at the library, and as soon as I finished, i knew I had to buy it...
A very powerful and memorable book. Usually the one to avoid a heavily religious context, I was ambivalent about it, but it turned out to be a remarkable read, capable of teaching us wisdom without too much preaching. The stories I appreciate most are the ones with the lesson, and that's why I truly...
Una bazofia machista y asquerosamente ridícula , además de aburrida y ofensiva para las mujeres . Un asco . Leí la mitad entera y después fui salteando para ver si el mensaje inicial cambiaba .. no fue así , claro esta . No suelo ser tan cruda con los libros ; no me gusta insultar a menos que la no...
