About this deal

Wearing someone out to the point that it's easier to say Yes than No is not really the same as making them love you. Note: I don't want to get much into the topic of content because, like I said, I can forgive content. Also, it tipped over the edge more than once into sensationalism, ending in being more like a soap opera than like a story focused only on the redemption of a soul and a lifestyle. I have never read or heard of Francine Rivers before, in fact read this book after reading Masterpiece and saw the comparison review to 'Redeeming Love'.

There is a case of insta-love (as dictated by Jesus) and God saving a woman from a life of despair and prostitution. She trusts him with her body and her well-being long before she's willing to let him have her heart. Set in California’s gold country, in 1850, there is a gold rush and with it, men would do what they want and women would sell their bodies for a place to sleep. When Angel sees Miriam talking with Michael, she assumes that they have feelings for one another and jumps to the conclusion that they would make a much better couple than she and Michael. I've talked to people who married the only person they've ever dated, and there's uncertainty there too.Lord knows I'm not one of them, as my internet browsing history could easily confirm, but I strongly believe that those men exist, and I also think there are men who struggle with sex without forcing their struggles on others. Despite being the object of desire for the local men, she survives through hatred and self-loathing. She is prepared to go on stage to entertain the men, but once there, the voice of God tells her to sing and she starts singing " Rock of Ages" to the awed and confused crowd. I think this may be only the second Christian themed novel I've ever read, which means its the first one I ever finished. Angel keeps her cold, sarcastic front to dissuade him, wanting to escape the pain his words cause her, she cannot seem to escape thoughts of him and she begins hope of a life outside the Palace.

Angel/Sarah and Michael’s love story was beautiful and I was on the edge of my seat through most of this story. 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. Because it was released by general market publisher, the book did not hold completely explicit Christian content, such as the baptismal scene in the book and Angel's Christian conversion; [3] however, when the book went out of print several years later, Rivers got the rights back to her book and made the additions to the novel. Other than the Rose Bowl Parade (for me) and the Rose Bowl Football game (for Rick), everything quiets down.Despite what people might say, this is 100% a Christian book and should be read only by those that enjoy religious fiction.

It is not until after she is nearly beaten to death by a brothel guard, that she agrees to marry Michael and leaves with him. California’s Gold Country in 1850 is a time when men sell their souls for a bag of gold and women sell their bodies for a place to sleep. Caruso to Direct Faith-Based 'Redeeming Love', Which Stars Logan Marshall-Green, Famke Janssen, and More". Thankfully there is not much detail, but the impact of events is part of the trauma in the story that needs to be redeemed from.

His self-sacrifice skirts the incredulous and I still can’t see what he got out of it during those years of waiting. Redemption (the supposed theme of this book) should lead to a complete transformation of heart and life. Angel and Michael's connection stands as a pure example of love in its most honest and unconditional state. I admit, I wanted Angel to at least argue with him, but nevertheless, he was a disgusting son of a bitch that asked it, and then did it. For those who will no doubt comment that the book of Hosea also contains graphic scenes of a similar nature.
