"Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers

Great read for book clubs and historical fiction fans!
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers was excellent! One of the best I ever read. About a beautiful little girl, sold into prostitution with no decent role models who learns what real love is when Michael Hosea decides to marry her and take her out of the brothel no matter what. Slowly, very slowly her walls come down and she learns to trust people, even to love. She leaves Michael for 3 years because she knows he wants children and she can’t have any, ever. Told her best friend to have his children and make him happy but Michael chose Angel. Angel is transformed when she finally trusts in Jesus as her personal Savior.

This is a historical Christian romance that held my attention all the way through and provided a lively discussion for our book club. It starts out very sad, depressing and raunchy but ends on a very positive note and shows Angel's journey to love and acceptance. It's a marvelous story based on the book of Hosea. I liked this book so much, I actually bought it!
