Redeeming Love Celebrates 20 Years and Special Giveaway

For over 20 years, Francine River's best-selling novel, Redeeming Love, has impacted lives around the world. I can still remember the first time I read this novel. It moved me in a way that no other novel has ever done. 

Based off the Biblical account of Hosea and Gomer, Redeeming Love delves into a beautiful romance and points to the ultimate romance between the Divine and fallen sinners.

Redeeming Love Synopsis

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.
