I don't read ROMANCE books!!!

That's right. I don't read ooooeeeeyyy goooooeeeyyyy romance novels. And I certainly do not do historical romance books! Yuck!

And that is exactly what I told my friend Lanell as she passed along this book, Redeeming Love, for me to read.

"Lanell" I said..."you know i'm probably going to toss this accross the room, right?".

And my friend said..."just stay with me on this one".

So, I did. It wasn't ANYTHING like I expected. Not a sticky sweet romance novel that makes you feel like your walking through syrup. Redeeming Love was about "real love".

So, without spoiling the book, I will give you a brief introduction. The time period of the book is set during the California gold rush. The story was of a young girl and her story beginning as she was taken into a brothol and prostitution at the age of eight. It tells of her life, her struggles, a Godly man, and salvation.

Thank you Lanell for making me stick with this one!!!

This is book 7 for the year.


  1. WOW! You are already finished? I have had so so many people say I NEED to read this. I don't know if I can get thru the beginning though.

    It is paralleled with the life of Hosea - right?

  2. AND just to call you on your bluff. You read Nicholas Sparks books which almost always have a good amount of romance in them. he he he!
