Hosea has been charged by God with a difficult task--marry a prostitute in order to show Gods people the nature and depth of his love for Israel. When Hosea goes to Israel to proclaim Gods message, the prostitute God tells him to marry turns out to be his childhood friend Gomer. He finds her broken and abused, unwilling to trust Hosea or his God. But when marrying Hosea becomes her only choice, Gomer does what shes good at--she survives. Can Hoseas love for God and Gods love for Israel heal Gomers broken spirit?
With her potent combination of in-depth research and masterful storytelling, Mesu Andrews brings to life a complex and fascinating biblical story of the power of love and forgiveness in the face of utter betrayal.

interesting take on the book of Hosea, but not really Biblically accurate.

I loved learning about what life was like in these ancient times and I found the book very captivating. I had never read biblical fiction before so I was a little hesitant but I will definitely be reading more.
