Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers


1850s California Gold Rush. God tells a good man to marry a prostitute and teach her the true meaning of unconditional love–if she’ll only stick around to learn it.

Well-structured with a good sense of motion, this retelling of the Biblical story of Hosea and Gomer is way sexier than most Christian fiction, while still keeping core evangelical Christian values. The writing is largely on-the-nose, but the writer does do a good job of conveying the desperation that keep a woman working the streets even though she could leave. There was a weird subplot involving the redemption of one of the men Angel sleeps with that didn’t sit well with me, because I didn’t buy that he was the kind of man who could ever treat a woman well.
