    Story
    "One of the best books!"

    I've never listened to a book so quickly! Such a great story for both Christians and non-Christians. Amazing love story!

    Definitely different from my normal read (business and self improvement) but so worth it!

    "An amazing story"

    This was truly a story for believers and non-believers alike. There is a lesson for everyone. I've been a Christ follower for 50 years and read much of the Bible but never studied the book of Hosea diligently. I must do so now! God has spoken to me through this book.

    Story
    "Brought a real biblical story to life!"
    Would you listen to Redeeming Love again? Why?

    Possibly, but would rather just read another book by same author.


    What other book might you compare Redeeming Love to and why?

    Can't think of any. This book was unique!


    Have you listened to any of Kate Forbes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure, and I enjoyed her. There is an energy to her voice that is captivating.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the biblical references at beginning of each chapter. This book was truly innovative in its ability to bring scriptural context to life. And make it very interesting!

    Story
    "Beautiful, absolutely beautiful."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Redeeming Love to be better than the print version?

    Currently, I love audio books more than print copies because they are easier for me to enjoy as I go throughout my busy weeks.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Michael. I can personally relate to him - the sacrificial love, that is difficult at times to give, and the forgiveness and choosing to look past faults in your spouse. What beautiful redemption God offers, and his character was written so well in portraying this love to us.


    What does Kate Forbes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her performance sparked my imagination as I pictured each scene - wonderful talent. I appreciated her tones throughout, and her interpretations of the characters voices.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES. However, it took me a couple weeks... I enjoyed EVERY minute.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book!
