This is not for the faint of heart. The story revolves around a young girl accidentally sold into prostitution and the trials she goes through to find love with the man who becomes her husband and God. There are implied scenes that will make you cringe and some graphic scenes that made my stomach pitch and roll. This is a relatively long story, 497 pages, so be prepared for the roller coaster of emotions. I'm not one for biblical books but the biblical portion here is not overwhelming at all. It's actually written so well, you'll find yourself wrapped up in the story instead.
I highly recommend this as I have never been so moved by a book in my life. More than once I found myself screaming at the book, crying to myself and praying for a happy ending. Just make sure you set aside time to read where you won't be interrupted and bring tissues!!
I must note that in the beginning I felt like I was reading a Harlequin romance novel and was turned off. But it had come so highly recommended by folks i know very well and so I plugged on. Glad I did, it is a good story. Come to find out the author was a former romance novel writer. There ya go!
The story is about a farmer named Michael Hosea who is led by God to marry Angel who's a prostitute. Michael's faith in his decision to follow God's will is met with resistance from Angel. She's unable to grasp the depth of Michael's boundless love for her as she continues to wallow in the shame and guilt of her previous lifestyle.
There are no easy roads taken during our journey through Michael and Angel's struggles. We read of all the painful mistakes that are made and all of the lessens that are learned.
While Redeeming Love is written with a spiritual theme, it doesn't come across as preachy. Instead, it magnifies our human need for love and acceptance and demonstrates the power of forgiveness. It was heart wrenching at times, I shed several tears, but most of all it was wonderfully glorious.
A beautiful and timeless 5 star read.
This is one of those books that I come back to when I need to be shown that love does exist, that you can overcome your past, and that your futur is up to you.
You have the ability to do more.
You have the power to change.
You just have to have faith.
