A Story of Love That Won’t Let Go—No Matter What
Now a major motion picture, directed by D. J. Caruso and starring Abigail Cowen, Tom Lewis, Nina Dobrev, with Logan Marshall Green and Eric Dane, special appearance by Famke Janssen.

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 lifechanging story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love.

After a few years of audiobooks I have to say Francine Rivers is my absolute fav author. I didn't know I like historical/religious/romance books but I could listen to anything by this author and be 1000% satisfied with the buy. This is one of my 2 fav books- you will fall in love with the characters. Its a deep soul touching story.

Very challenging as I look at how I love my wife. Also, very good at showing God's unconditional love.

It just goes on and on and on and on... main characters keep making same mistakes. Very redundant. I knew exactly what was going to happen. I guess this book has its place, but good literature it is not.

The lack of consent and manipulation through a Christian tradition in this book made me feel sick. I tried to push through because I appreciate the story of her beginning to trust people again despite lots of trauma, but I don’t like how it all went down. It gives me covert yucky vibes. The worst thing you can do to a trauma survivor is control them and tell them what’s best for them. They need constant safety and consent and empowering. So sad.

If I could, I would rate it 10 stars! Read the book many years ago, went to watch the movie, and then did the audiobook. Wow! What an amazing love story... Between Michael and Angel, and between God and Michael and God and Angel. Francine Rivers so masterfully intertwine God's redeeming love with Michael and Angels love. I was so sad when I finished the book, that I just feel like starting it again from the beginning.

It was wonderfully written and read, and very insightful. It makes you want to delve into the word of God more and see love in a different light. It also touches deeper issues and gives a view into various perspectives.

I knew about Hosea in the Bible and loved how Angel and Michael’s story portrayed the story of Hosea and his wife. There were many times that I disliked how Angel was so stubborn but that’s how we are in life too, we’re all stubborn and need a Saviour. Loved all the biblical references. A must read! Can’t wait to read more of Francine’s books.
