    I'm not even going to attempt to review this one because I doubt that I could do it justice. Besides, there's over a thousand reviews of this book on GR (hard to believe--I must have been one of the few people who haven't read this book)! Anyway, it was definitely the best book I've re...

    I didn't get very far into this before realising that it was R rated. Luckily I got it free so haven't wasted any money and can happily throw it away. One of the most troubling things about this book is that there are a number of reviews from non-Christians commenting on the graphic na...

    5 STARS She thought she had been saved by his love for her, and in part she had been. It had cleansed her, never casting blame. But that had been only the beginning. It was loving him in return that had brought her up out of the darkness. Wow. So much to say about this bo...

    Hm, hard review to write! I appreciate the story of redemption Rivers set out to tell, but I didn't like how she went about it. The story was riveting at first, drawing me in, so that I read the first 100 pages without even setting it aside. But I had to lay the book down to complete a...

    This is a difficult book to rate because at times it?s a 1 and then a 3 and I can even see how readers could give it a 5 star rating. It?s an inspirational romance that at times is quite heavy on the religious aspect in my opinion. If the idea of a kind of self-sacrifice to the ext...

    Read this years ago and realized I hadn't rated it. Such a beautiful story! ...

    I feel like my heart has just been put through the wringer. Wow. There are two versions of Redeeming Love: the original 1991 version, and the 1997 version that was sanitized to remove the coarse language and (very) mild love scenes to make it fit for the Inspirational market. I bou...

    I can safely say that I should have never started this book. I have heard about this book for ages. It pops up from time to time on friends' feeds, and with over 70,000 Goodreads ratings and over 1,600 Amazon ratings, I'd say it is a pretty popular book. When I saw this come up on ...

    My 1st Xtian romance & may be my last. Nothing wrong w/ the writing, just not my cuppa. I was raised a baptized & confirmed Catholic who went to Catholic schools, but turned into a semi-atheist (plz don't cast rocks @ me). I still don't feel like converting after reading this b...

    Redemption. This is a story about redemption. I am not a person who is ever at a loss for words. It doesn't happen. Yet as I sit at my computer, wanting to write this review so badly, I am at a loss for words. The beauty and lasting impression this novel makes on the reader is hard ...

    5+++ Stars An amazing and unforgettable love story that touched my heart deeply. I do not own the words that would do this book justice in a review. I highly recommend this to everyone. Angel lost her innocence and hope as a young child. At only eight years old, she is sold to a...

    This is a Christian Inspirational Historical romance - a genre I rarely seek out. Thanks to some enthusiastic reviews, I decided to take the plunge. I read the 1997 version that is posted at Open Library and I was moved by it, but I didn't understand why I could sigh and say "how roman...

    There are many things, good and bad, that could be said about this book, but I have only one thing to say. Forced sex is rape. Every time. When her brother in law drives her through the wilderness and commands her to have sex with him or he will abandon her there, he is using physic...
