Meet the Author
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.

One of my favourite Francine Rivers books. Beautiful story of love and never giving up on someone. Great portrayal of Hosea. A must read.
this was the first book of Francine Rivers' that I read. (I don't like to read - But that has changed too) this book had me laughing, screaming and crying i was so emotionally captivated in the book. reading it also help me understand Gods love even more. Best book EVER.
Wow I loved reading this book, my first Francine Rivers book I read given to me by my friend for my birthday I would have to say I was blown away by the story and it inspired me to read about Hosea from the bible a patient God filled man. Everything that others have written about his book in the reviews I agree it was very hard to put down. A must read and I can understand why Rivers has sold over 5 million copies of this book I am glad I own this book as I would read it again some day!
Absolutely loved this book! Once I started reading, it was very hard to put down as there was so much going on for the characters. The book is said to be a retelling of the story of Hosea but for me, the connections were very loose and I think you would be disappointed if this was your main reason for getting the book. Many of Francine's other books are closer to the Bible characters they portray. However, this was a fascinating story of the power of unconditional love and what this looks like and how this impacts not only the recipient but also those looking on. There were many emotional highs and lows - definitely a book that requires a box of tissues and a book that will be read again!
This book has always been my favourite. I could not stop reading it. I've read Redeeming Love a few times, and every time I feel my soul changing by it. This book has been a blessing in my life, and I hope to pass it on to others.
