Angel seems to fulfill the adage, "Hurt people hurt people." She has been mistreated, unwanted and unloved for practically as long as she can remember. Then Michael Hosea, a man who seeks after a God Angel cannot comprehend, comes into her life, bringing an unconditional and determined love. Will Angel accept redemption? Will she ever truly find "redeeming love?"
The book, "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers is lengthy at over 450 pages, the only reason I give it 4/5 stars instead of 5 stars, as I think it would be better with slightly less length. However, it is well worth the lengthy read. It will pull at your heart, bring tears to your eyes, and a smile of joy to your face. I highly recommend this retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea, set in California's gold country in the 1850's.
