A beautiful demonstration of God's unending love for his bride. This book has painted a picture of how God's heart aches when we fail to trust him and run after temporary worldly things.
This is my favorite novel and I don't say that lightly. I LOVE reading and read Everything; all genres and types. This is the first Christian book that I didn't need a degree in Christianese to be able to relate to or understand it. The story is relevant and convincing and convicting. Literally every person I've ever recommended or given this book to has loved it. I've never written a review before, but for my favorite book I will. I don't want to describe the story, you have to read it to see for yourself, but I will say that I have read this book over and over again, through different ages and phases in my life and have never become bored by it or over it and have taken away different and new things Every time. As an audiobook the reader was engaging and effective. The story flowed evenly and I was able to enjoy hearing the story while getting work done, I Love audiobooks! I also enjoyed the interview with Francine Rivers. This purchase was everything I needed and wanted it to be and we'll worth the cost. Highly recommend :)
I read this book at a time that I was in such need of faith and strength. My world felt as if it were coming to an end and I wanted to give up. Thank you for redeeming my love!
Very gripping. pulling at my own past. showing depth in words like the author too had been in these dark moments. feeling love pull with unsteadiness of what love is but the desire to seek after it. want that type of love! God's love! Michael type love! To accept that love/ to give that love!
The author illustrates the process of deliverance from a mindset that once was so embedded in fear and unbelief; a young woman's mind negatively conditioned from childhood abuse. Enjoyable book.
I have read this book and now I have just finished the audio version. I must say that this is one of the most powerful and memorable books I have ever read! Such a beautiful love story! Everyone can relate is some way to the characters.
I loved everything about this book. It was sad, exciting, happy, heart wrenching and everything in between. Rivers has such a way with words and the narrator brought the story to life.
I cried several times throughout this book. It pulls at your heartstrings and you really fall in love with the characters. It was witty too and there were some times of comedic relief.
Nothing I would have picked for myself but when my friend recommended it to accompany our Hosea Bible study I couldn't put it down!!! Absolutely breath taking, life changing. I was sad to come to the ending.
