This is not just my favorite book of 2011, but of all time. I like most of what Francine Rivers has done, but this book grabbed me and I could NOT put it down. I have never had a book pull me in like this one did. I love to read, but rarely get emotionally involved with a book. However, I cried my way through this one. And I understand some things about God that I never knew before. This is a book for everyone!!

This book was awesome i read the first page and it immediately grabbed my attention. The way the book was just written i could imagine everything that was happening as i read it. Like all of the men waiting impatiently in line to go up and see the beautiful angel. Then the mystery guy who cared so much about her. It was just wonderful and i honestly can say i have never read a book that was so good.

Francine Rivers skillfully retells the biblical love story of Gomer and Hosea as a tale set against the romantic backdrop of the California Gold Rush. Readers have purchased over 270,000 volumes of this timeless love story — now with an attractive new cover!
