Inspired by the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea, Redeeming Love is set against the romantic backdrop of the historic California Gold Rush, a time when men sold their souls for a bag of gold and women sold their bodies for a place to sleep. Trafficked into prostitution as a child, Angel expects nothing from men but betrayal. Then she meets Michael Hosea, who obeys God’s call to marry Angel and love her unconditionally. Angel’s journey through betrayal, hatred, unworthiness, and fear poignantly reveals how the determined love of a faithful man leads her to the One who loves her even more…the God whose unconditional love has the power to redeem the darkest of stories, including hers.
Evidenced by its several years on multiple fiction bestseller lists and its translation into more than 30 languages, Redeeming Love is at once a life-changing story and a literary masterpiece that is sure to capture even more hearts through the screen.
“I am delighted and excited to have the movie tie-in edition of Redeeming Love available within the next few weeks,” Rivers says. “The movie is wonderful, but it is impossible to show the intense inner spiritual battle going on within the minds of Angel and Michael. I hope people will read the book before seeing the movie because this isn’t just a love story about a man and woman. It is the story of how far God will go to rescue, redeem, heal, and restore one of His precious children. Reading the book before seeing the movie will enrich the experience.”
