Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers

Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers

Angel was sold into prostitution at the age of 8. One day a man named Michael sees her walking down the street and knows that she is the one God wants him to marry. I am going to leave it at that because you can read the description Here.

The story line to this book was great. You could really see and understand Angel's struggles and I could relate with them in a sense. When you go through horrific things in your past, you do not just forget it and move on, you struggle through it and doubt yourself and those around you. So I felt like her struggles were all very realistically written.

Personally, I thought this book was too long. Parts of it seemed to drag on and seemed irrelevant. She could have cut a bit of this book (mostly the middle fluff) so it stayed more captivating the whole time. It would still be realistic and believable but it would not make me feel like I wasted time reading those parts.

I prefer books that bring God in slowly and gradually.....why? Because if I can convince a non believer to read a book and God is thrown at the the whole time, do you think they would finish reading it? Do you think they would get anything out of it? No. Of course not. They would shut down and turn further from God. This book is good for believers (but even then, it is alot of God to take in) but not for a non believer and personally, the non-believers are the people I want to talk to.

Would I read this book again? No. It is too long and too much God for me (and yes, I AM a believer), do I recommend this book? Yes. Alot of people really enjoy it so please read it and tell me what you think!

***This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an open and honest review***
