I tried so hard not to cry (especially toward the end) but I finally had to pull over and wipe my eyes when it ended. Okay, having children if you want them is all great, but are we really implying that women who can't have children, or perhaps end up with men who can't, have meaningless lives? I can see how people who have a religious background and like the idea of Jesus leading them to their soul-mate would love this book.

And it gets just slightly preachy at the end, but you won't care because you'll be too wrapped up in Angel and Michael. As soon as I began reading this book, I literally had two people message me to inform me that this book allegedly takes two forms: the 1991 version and the 1997 version.A livid Michael finds her in a room with a client and fights their way out of the bar filled with drunken men waiting for their turn with Angel. She feels a deep sense of shame at her "uncleanness:" she is moved by Michael's love but cannot see herself as worthy of it.

I also thought that the way the religion was written in this book is probably suitable for the time period in which it was written (1850-ish), because most people in the 19th century were religious, and it formed the backbone of their social circles in many cases. There is somethig about this Michael character that we are supposed to see as very strong, but to me comes off as the worst kind of weak. They go back and forth a bit, she leaves him three times and bangs his brother, Paul, on the side of the road.Even though the cover looks like a Harlequin romance novel this is hands down my best historical fiction book, and now and then, I spoil myself and reread it. First off, one thing I must note about this book, and it’s probably the one small element that held me off from reading it sooner than I did, or reading it at all for that matter.

Redeeming Love is a historical romance novel by Francine Rivers set in the 1850s Gold Rush in California. I could go on and on and still not justify the magnitude of this story's brilliance— what it means, what it stands for, and how deeply it has affected me. No matter how awful her choices were and how badly they hurt Michael, I still wanted to come to her defenses. Gasping, her sides burning, she dropped into the tall grass, her shoulders heaving with sobs, her face streaked with tears. Over the years she has become bitter and cold; it's her only defense against her growing despair at sleeping with men she doesn't like in a prison gilded by the gold dust of the Californian mining town she's settled in.Okay, before getting too far into reading this, understand that I only read this book because it was required of me for a book club. I think I must have sighed a hundred times from heartbreak and angst for these characters and forget about keeping track of my facial expressions, but I treasured every moment irregardless of what people around me must have witnessed.

She uses the book of Hosea well in illustrating the life Angel had, it's opened my eyes and reminded me that I do not have to be ashamed to turn myself into God and that whilst people of this world will still judge u on your past God loves you effortlessly. After the second abortion, the doctor takes measures to ensure that she can never get pregnant again. I didn't mind the way God's voice was written in this book, however, and I thought it was clever how what I assume was the devil took the voice of Angel's abuser. After being so descriptive with the character 's thoughts the author appears to jump from being a rejected mistress and daughter then at the docks with Sarah selling her body to keep them.He [God] will rescue the poor when they cry to him; he will help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them. I can even forgive inappropriate content if I feel that it is necessary for moving the plot of a well-written story forward.
