I've started a new book and I feel I must share it with you. If you have not read this book, you must. Drop what you are doing and go buy this book. You will not be disappointed nor will you put this book down. Francine Rivers is an amazing Christian writer.
About the book:
"California’s gold country, 1850. A time when men sold their souls for a bag of gold and women sold their bodies for a place to sleep. Angel expects nothing from men but betrayal. Sold into prostitution as a child, she survives by keeping her hatred alive. And what she hates most are the men who use her, leaving her empty and dead inside. Then she meets Michael Hosea. A man who seeks his Father’s heart in everything, Michael Hosea obeys God’s call to marry Angel and to love her unconditionally. Slowly, day by day, he defies Angel’s every bitter expectation until, despite her resistance her frozen heart begins to thaw. But with her unexpected softening come overwhelming feelings of unworthiness and fear. And so Angel runs. Back to the darkness, away from her husband’s pursuing love, terrified of the truth she can no longer deny: Her final healing must come from the One who loves her even more than Michael Hosea does…the One who will never let her go. A life-changing story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love."
I read it before I was married just a couple months after Kyle and I started dating. If you are a girl out there, you need to read this book. I've started it again now that I am married to see if there was anything I missed and maybe have a different perspective.
It's a pretty thick book but give me about 4 or 5 days and a weekend, I'll have it finished. It's THAT good.
