Absolutely captivating, beautiful...what a story! Both the writing and narration are beyond excellent. I will be thinking about this story for quite some time.
Thank you Audible!
This is amazing story of unconditional Love and the very real process we as people go through to learn to accept that Love. And it changes our lives to do so. Had this book for years, but I could never read fast enough to get to enjoy it. This audio version helped me so much! And it brings the characters to life for you. A Must Read for your Bucket List!
This was such an incredible story of the Lord's redemption, forgiveness and love for us. It truly helped me understand more of what He must feel when we turn away and come back to Him every time. Wonderful, life-changing story.
This book has has awakened so much in my heart. God is the only one who knows from beginning to end our life stories. Love supposed to be unconditional as God's love for us. Perfect title for this book. The narrator spoke eloquently for the book.
Francine made this story so real and shows the true love of God the author of Love itself. Wonderful story - I have already bought the book for a friend of mine.
the last few chapters made the whole story very real.
We all struggle with our own sins, our own history, our scathing judgment of others, and the loves of our lives. These common character traits make identifying with the people in this book a journey with them and a journey of our own faith. One of my top 3 reads.
I downloaded the audio version of this book simply because I had added it to my Goodreads 'Want to Read' list at some point. When I started listening to this story, I really had no idea what it was about; however, I was instantly hooked. This is truly a captivating tale for those who enjoy Historical Fiction and Christian Fiction as this story marries both genres blissfully.
The story begins with a child and her broken upbringing that quickly lands her on a path of survival through prostitution during the gold rush era in California. The author does an outstanding job at exploring the pain, desperation and separation of emotion girls like this endure when sold into this disgusting trade. By divine intervention, this particular girl, Angel, encounters a man of strong faith and endurance, Michael. Michael is a Godly man who trusts in the Lord completely and pushed forward with God's plan despite the heartache and resistance he encountered. Following Michael's tale makes you examine your own heart and motives in the choices we are faced with daily. After many, many trials, Michael finally wins Angel's heart, but that is only where the story begins. Angel is accustomed to being a soiled and tarnished woman and does not feel worthy of this man who will not leave her alone. Angel and Michael's journey is relatable today as we often cannot hear that still small voice over our own wants and desires. Michael exhibits biblical love in so many ways, that you can't help but grow a little by reading this amazing story. I highly recommend this book!
Recommended for adult readers due to slight sexual content and implied graphic nature.
