UPDATE: Brenda is the winner of REDEEMING LOVE
I hope you love the book as much as I do. 🙂
My last post was my 600th post. That’s cause for a giveaway. I’m giving a copy of Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers…one of my all time favorite novels. This was the first Christian fiction I ever read, and I didn’t know what to expect. I definitely didn’t expect to read it from cover to cover in one sitting, but I did. If you’ve never read anything by Francine Rivers this is a golden opportunity to win a copy of her best-loved work. I will not attempt to review it, because I can not possibly do it justice. It is, as the title indicates, a story of redemption…tissues (included in the giveaway) are a must when reading it.
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. (copied from waterbrookmutnoman.com)

The coming of Christ by way of a Bethlehem manger seems strange and stunning. But when we take Him out of the manger and invite Him into our hearts, then the meaning unfolds and the strangeness vanishes. ~ C. Neil Strait
