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.

Heart-wrenching story
4 stars By Clare, Apr 05 2018
A challenging book to read. I can't say "enjoy" was exactly the right word, but I was challenged and left pondering for a long time after reading.

Incredible
5 stars By Bronwyn, Nov 18 2017
This book is incredible and displays what true love is. Dynah's life is thrown upside down, however, it's during that time that she realises that God truly is always with her and the importance of trusting Him. There is so much incredible emotion in these pages, so much heartbreak, but also so much healing and restoration. Definitely a great book to read.

A worthy read
4 stars By Ling, Feb 10 2017
I'm a fan of Francine Rivers books and while this book was well-written, it isn't one of my favourites. Francine Rivers explored the unfortunate circumstances of rape and an unexpected pregnancy in a Christian   environment in this title. While the theme of the book was interesting, the storyline felt too perfect and unrealistic. Overall, I would recommend this book but I won't be reading it for a second time.

A Compelling Story
5 stars By Madeleine, Jun 24 2016
Being a Francine Rivers book you expect it to be good and Rivers doesn't disappoint. This is a heart wrenching story which is beautifully written. It really brings to life the stark reality between pro life and abortion.
