Flashback Friday...Redeeming Love

Flashback Friday hosted by Fiction Fare and Swoony Boys Podcast

This book was gifted to me by Hannah and it came highly recommended by her. I've never read Christian Fiction before but our beliefs are very similar so she thought I would like this. I was a little hesitant, I won't lie, but only because the time period was not super appealing to me so I wasn't sure if I would be able to get into in that sense...oh, how wrong I was...

Hannah had it right...again...and I just fell IN LOVE with this book. The characters, the story, the message, the struggle, everything! I honestly cannot put into words how much this book affected me. There were passages that had me in ugly tears and it wasn't until after I read that I realized how much I needed a book like this in my life. It shook me to my core and was just SO good. There is so much about self-acceptance and trusting in the Lord. Trusting His timing and His plan and always knowing that the love is always there.

I cannot say enough good things about this book and I truly thank Hannah for giving this to me because it was exactly what I needed.

  1. I read this book about 9 years ago. It was the book that changed everything for me. After I read it, I found that I wanted to read absolutely everything that I could get my hands on. I was a freshman in high school and reading had not been a priority for me -especially since I read much slower than the rest of my peers.

    I love Francine Rivers' work. It's beautiful, entrancing, and an all around life-changing read. Have you read her Mark of the Lion trilogy? Those are the only books that have topped Redeeming Love in my opinion. They are unbelievably good!

    I enjoyed your post! I look forward to reading more!
