This book was hard for me to get into at first because of the pain of the caricatures but once I started I could not put my i pod down.... I found my self crying for angel... I have never cried while reading a book before this is the first for me. I loved this book It is my first by the author and I cant wait to purchase another. I hope you love this book as much as I have. And I loved the ending.

I sat down with the actual book and read it. I wanted my husband to 'know' about it and he doesn't make time to read. This story, based on the Old Testament couple, Hosea and Gomer, is brought into the 19th century during the Gold Rush era in California. Many times during the reading, I'm crying openly and talking to God. I found myself being changed with a permanent awareness of the Love of a heavenly Father that I never knew. This book starts slow but when it builds moves like a runaway train. After it's finished, you continue to think about these people as if they are really someone that you know. I can qualify this as the best, most transforming book I've ever read unequivicably. I strongly suggest this.

This is a powerful book about Love, not just our love for each other but God's love for his people. Don't let the thought that this is a christian book put you off though, it tackles some tough issues with the ultimate theme being that you can never do anything bad enough that you are unloved or unforgivable.

Where does Redeeming Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This has to be the best audible I have ever listened to. I originally read this book on kindle a couple of years ago and listening to the audible version confirmed it as one of my favourite novels of all time.
What did you like best about this story?
At times the story of Angel's life is heart wrenching. Extremely difficult subjects have been tackled sensitively. This is also a wonderful love story, the love between a man and a woman and the love of God.
What three words best describe Kate Forbes’s performance?
When, I first started listening to this I was concerned I wouldn't enjoy the audile version. I found the readers' child voice somewhat irritating, luckily this is only a short section of the book.
