Hosea has been charged by God with a difficult task--marry a prostitute in order to show God's people the nature and depth of his love for Israel. When Hosea goes to Israel to proclaim God's message, the prostitute God tells him to marry turns out to be his childhood friend Gomer. He finds her broken and abused, unwilling to trust Hosea or his God. But when marrying Hosea becomes her only choice, Gomer does what she's good at--she survives. Can Hosea's love for God and God's love for Israel heal Gomer's broken spirit?

With her potent combination of in-depth research and masterful storytelling, Mesu Andrews brings to life a complex and fascinating biblical story of the power of love and forgiveness in the face of utter betrayal.
This book. My word. I can't even begin to put into words what it did to my emotions. I can relate to Gomer so much throughout this book. While I may not have been a prostitute, I definitely went through life being hurt to the point that I felt I could not be loved. Seeing her come to terms with her worth really connected with me and made me realize how special I can be!

On top of that, I love that Hosea made a point of letting Gomer have a say, despite her position as a woman. It made their love blossom even more, which causes me to simply fall in love with them and their story. An excellent romance!

I received this book free for review for a Revell Blog Tour. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
