California’s gold country, 1850. A time when men sold their souls for a bag of gold and women sold their bodies for a place to sleep.
Angel expects nothing from men but betrayal. Sold into prostitution as a child, she survives by keeping her hatred alive. And what she hates most are the men who use her, leaving her empty and dead inside.
Then she meets Michael Hosea, a man who seeks his Father’s heart in everything. Michael obeys God’s call to marry Angel and to love her unconditionally. Slowly, day by day, he defies Angel’s every bitter expectation, until despite her resistance, her frozen heart begins to thaw.
But with her unexpected softening comes overwhelming feelings of unworthiness and fear. And so Angel runs. Back to the darkness, away from her husband’s pursuing love, terrified of the truth she no longer can deny: Her final healing must come from the One who loves her even more than Michael does…the One who will never let her go.
A powerful retelling of the story of Gomer and Hosea, Redeeming Love is a life-changing story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love.

Cahn employs a fictional framework to examine Biblical prophecy of Isaiah (and others), revealing symbolic meanings that draw a parallel between 8th century Israel (threatened by Assyrian invasions) and America in the 21st century (especially regarding the World Trade Center destruction of 9/11/2001 and financial instability of 2008-2009). Readers will be challenged in a very real way - NOT as fiction - to consider our contemporary values and worldviews that are in opposition to God and what everyone needs to do to enjoy God's eternal peace.
