Redeeming Love

I want to start off by saying that I am a big Francine Rivers fan. I have read her Mark Of The Lion series, The Scarlet Thread, The Atonement Child, and And The Shofar Blew and absolutely loved all these books. So when I saw the rave reviews for Redeeming Love, I knew it was one I needed to read.Redeeming Love is the story of a prostitute named Angel and a godly man named Michael. He marries Angel and "redeems" her. She then proceeds to leave him and come back - again, and again, and again, and again. About 3/4 of the way through the book I was so weary of the repetitive storyline that I had trouble finishing the book and was tempted to give up on it. At the very end Angel finally does come back for good, and then the next 60+ years are summed up in about three pages. I was less than thrilled with what felt like a dragged on story, then a rushed ending.The positives for this book is that it shows how God relentlessly pursues us, sinners, even when we keep running away from Him. The message is that it's never too late to come back to God and that He will always love us regardless of the sins we commit. However, I just didn't enjoy this portrayal of that great Truth very much.I received a copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
