Redeeming Love

All I can say about this book is, "Wow!" I finished it in less than two weeks, but it would have been done faster had I had more time. A Christmas gift from my Grandma Jan, thanks a million Grandma! What a beautiful retelling of the story of Hosea and Gomer from the Bible! Fictional, yes, but the Lord will move and speak to your heart through this book. I was lost in and captured by this story from beginning to end. Run, don't walk to you favorite bookstore and check out or buy this book! A much better way to spend February, the "month of love", than with candy hearts and expensive expectations. Oh, and I'm passing this one on to Travis. I know he'll love it too.

Enjoy!

Oh yes... this has been a favorite of mine for years!! She is a wonderful writer and that book really helps you graps God's grace, doesn't it?!

You should check out the Mark of the Lion series, also by Francine Rivers. You would love it!!

I read it about six years ago and LOVED it. I just recommended it on my blog actually. Such a great story.

I agree. Wonderful book. I tried to convince Tommy to read it, but he refused based on the fact that there is a women in a red dress on the cover. Men these days. He he!

Sarah, it is so good to see you and your cute family. I didn't even know about Chloe and she is so big already. It looks like things are good for you all. You can see what we are up to at feltspot.blogspot.com if you have any interest. Please tell Travis hello for us. Take care.

I visit your blog occasionally, and was intrigued when I read your recommendation for this book...I went out and bought it a couple days ago, and have been completely hooked since!

I love all of Francine River's books- especially The Last Sin Eater!

Redeeming Love is wonderful... it's one of the few I do not own- perhaps it's time I read it again! :)
