Best-selling author Francine Rivers skillfully retells the biblical love story of Gomer and Hosea as a tale set against the romantic historical background of the California Gold Rush. The main character, Angel, is a young woman who was sold into ...
prostitution as a child. Michael Hosea, the hero, is a godly man who is sent into Angel's life to bring her God's love and truth, and to draw her into the Savior's redeeming love.
I hadn't ever read christian fiction before this book, and I haven't since, but because of a friend's recommendation I picked this one up and I couldn't put it down! It was great, not at all preachy, and very romantic!
