Meet the Author

Francine Rivers

New York Times best-selling author Francine Rivers (born 1947) began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were highly acclaimed by readers and reviewers. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, a mother of three, and an established romance novelist.

Five years after becoming a born-again Christian in 1986, Francine released Redeeming Love as her statement of faith. This retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea, set during the time of the California Gold Rush, is now considered by many to be a classic work of Christian fiction. The popularity of Redeeming Love continues unabated over a quarter of a century after its publication.

Since Redeeming Love, Francine has published numerous novels with Christian themes - all best sellers. The Last Sin Eater, earned her the CBA Gold Medal award and has since been made into a feature film - She has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her Christian novels have been awarded or nominated for numerous honours, including the RITA Award, the Christy Award, the ECPA Gold Medallion, and the Holt Medallion in Honour of Outstanding Literary Talent. In 1997, after winning her third RITA Award for inspirational fiction, Francine was inducted into the Romance Writers of America's Hall of Fame. Francine's books have been translated into over thirty languages, and she enjoys best-seller status in many countries, including Germany, the Netherlands, and South Africa.

Francine and her husband, Rick, live in northern California and enjoy time spent with their three grown children and taking every opportunity to spoil their grandchildren. Francine uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and she desires that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.

The Old Testament Brought To Life!
4 stars By Olivia, Aug 02 2017
This is my second book I have read from Francine and it was a interesting and educational read on a spiritual level. I enjoyed reading about the 5 women who made a impact on the Old Testament, they were all different and are a inspiration to us! I didn't know anything about Tamar, Ruhab, Ruth or Basheba now I do. Keep in mind though when reading this Fiction novel based book that their are made up characters and some events didn't happen in particular about Mary having sons and daughters she was a virgin! Although I can see why Francine wrote that she had sons and daughters to say that Jesus was perfect in every way because he was conceived by the Holy Spirit, he is the son of God, whilst the others were not perfect and they were influenced by people around them. The bible verses are true and I liked reading them, so its a good idea to read the Old Testament bible after reading it!

Another masterpiece... make that 5 masterpieces.
5 stars By NB, Feb 08 2017
There is no one like Francine Rivers when it comes to Christian storytelling. I am so thankful to have had the honour of reading this collection. To walk in the shoes of these heroines brings to life the Bible. You will laugh and cry with each novella. Please read this, pronto!

Highly recommended
5 stars By Ling, Jan 13 2017
Excellent book within the historical fiction category. It's rare to read fiction books that draw me closer to the Word of God but Francine Rivers has done it! Highly recommended to both old and young readers.

Brilliant story telling
5 stars By Julie, May 16 2016
One of the best character studies I have ever read.
Such a brilliant "filling in the gaps" of some of the most important women in the genealogy of Jesus.
I would recommend this both to people familiar and unfamiliar with the Bible.
Loved it.
