Not Just For Girls

My wife wanted me to read this, and I really resisted for a while. Finally, I got the audiobook and started to listen. I didn't tell my wife for a while, because I was afraid to admit that, well, it was really good. I was really moved by the depth and tragedy of the main character, Angel (aka Sarah). I am not a fan of romance novels, westerns, or christian fiction, but this book will stick with me for a very long time. It is a very encouraging story, and will challenge you to rethink your place in life, your values, and the value of the people around you.

I sat down with the actual book and read it. I wanted my husband to 'know' about it and he doesn't make time to read. This story, based on the Old Testament couple, Hosea and Gomer, is brought into the 19th century during the Gold Rush era in California. Many times during the reading, I'm crying openly and talking to God. I found myself being changed with a permanent awareness of the Love of a heavenly Father that I never knew. This book starts slow but when it builds moves like a runaway train. After it's finished, you continue to think about these people as if they are really someone that you know. I can qualify this as the best, most transforming book I've ever read unequivicably. I strongly suggest this.
