Reviews for Redeeming Love
mind blowing book
One of the best book i've ever read in my life. From the first few pages you will just plunge into reading and devour it.... I've read it in 4 days in between work hours and house duty, couldn't put it down. If you do belive in love, then YOU MUST READ IT TOO.

Redeeming Love: A Joyous Read
A real page turner. One could not help but understand the significance and depth of love of a man for a woman and how much God plays a part in Michael and Angel's life. Even to the minute details like clothings, household of the late 1800s was pretty descriptive, keeping reality in check help the characters to grow. Michael Hosea (they don't make guys like him anymore!), a truly devout, loyal and loving man is totally the opposite of the men Angel had known all her life. How his love and determination to win Angel over is something of a feat. Angel is a high-class prostitute who was so disillusioned about men since childhood (note the spoiler). Her hatred and bitterness about life is simply the opposite of Michael. How these two complete opposites come together is what I call a miracle love and perhaps it suits well with the title of the story.
All in all, I like how the story balances out. There were some dark moments (spoiler: really disturbing ones) and of course humour was included, keeping realism well balanced. How hope, faith, acceptance, compassion and love centers around the story. And what they say, how God works in mysterious ways is simply true in this case. It opens up my eyes as to how much love plays important role in everyone's life. Regardless of a farmer or even to a prostitute, God loves everyone.
This is by far is my favourite novel from Francine Rivers. by Patricia Winnie Nub
