I really enjoyed this book. The first time I read it, the second time I listened to it. The message is wonderful as it demonstrates God's love and mercy and how he uses other people to reach people. It doesn't matter what sin someone has been in God's grace is more than enough . The woman in this book suffered from past sins, low self-esteem. embarrassment, feelings of being unworthy , and pain . It's just an excellent example of God's mercy and Grace and provision. I would recommend this book to anyone it includes a love story that is pure.
My daughter had given me the book a few years back but I had never stopped to read it. Listening to the book let me know the story without me having to sit and allowed me to keep working.
This book was a wonderful story. It caught me by surprise. I love that it showed the ugly grittiness of life away from Christ, but that His redeeming love is there for each and everyone of us. Paul is like so many of us in that he blamed her for his own sin & hated her for it. God loves us unconditionally & helps us even before we are willing to turn to Him. I thoroughly enjoyed this book & will look for more by Francine Rivers!
This was my first time reading a book by this author and I'm forever a fan! The way the author lifted the character Angel was so profound and needed. There are lot of Angels in this world who need to know God. I really enjoyed this book.
This story was difficult to listen to at times because characters kept falling back to old thoughts and it was taking so long to resolve. It reminds me now of how we also keep falling back into the old ruts and how the Lord, in His own time, brings us back - never leaving or forsaking us.
This is not just a good read. It's a heartbreaking and ultimately triumphant journey, that as a reader or listener, if you do the audio book, that you find you've hitched a ride, as an uncertain and sometimes reluctant companion, with the main character. Sarah's journey will touch you deep within leaving you ... a better person.
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.
