It honestly couldn't have come at a better time for my life. I'm currently attending a women's bible study at church and our study is on the book of Hosea in the bible. The book of Hosea is such a great story about our forgiving God/Father. I had several girlfriends mention this novel book to me and I'm so glad I listened. 'Redeeming Love' is based of off the book in the bible that we're currently studying-in a romantic sort of way, yet very true to the word. This is a wonderful love story. Please read it. It's AMAZING! It's one of those that you'll not want to put down. I promise. :)

Love is Forgiving
I just finished reading the best.book.ever! Oh my goodness, I couldn't put it down. It was definitely a page turner and I highly recommend it. If you love 'love' stories then this is the book for you. Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. The book is about a young girl (at the young age of 8 years old) who is sold into prostituion. Angel is a bitter woman who trusts no man. God tells a man named Michael Hosea to marry her. He does and she learns to love---until fear overwhelms her and she returns to her formal life because that's all she knows and feels she's undeserving of the life Michael is offering her.
