Standalone I think the purpose of this book was overshadowed by the very dark subject matter. Their relationship is poisoned by this event until the very end of the novel.

Not dissuaded, Rab insists that Sarah is perfect for this rich man.
He finds a man that is looking for a little girl for his wealthy master. Imagine if this movie was still on track. Not meant to be born. Twice she ran away from him, and twice he lovingly brought her back. Six-year-old Sarah learns that she is the product of Stafford's adulterous affair with her mother, Mae. He eventually dumps them, and cut off from funds and family let's just say that life on the docks isn't easy. It is not focused on the graphic exploits of Gomer.
So, in the end, it fails as an allegory; Michael doesn't chase after her quite as the real Hosea did; Sarah isn't wanting to return to a life of sensual fulfillment as Gomer was. She runs away after being forced to work for and take care of him. وتكشف الحكمة من العذابات والصعاب التي تعصف أحيانا بحياة الأنسان والتي يقف العقل عاجزا عن استيعابها أو فهمها. I didn't mind the way God's voice was written in this book, however, and I thought it was clever how what I assume was the devil took the voice of Angel's abuser. The more he tried to convince her, the more convinced she was of his insincerity. And what she hates most are the men who use her, leaving her empty and dead inside.
I saved it till last, I believe, because it was her first, and I wanted to read her later works to be able to compare the first book to. You have to experience it to understand all the meaning that it holds. Yet as I sit at my computer, wanting to write this review so badly, I am at a loss for words.

It's about the unparalleled ways love and faith can conquer all, and I could not have been more pleased with this loving and fulfilling journey.
The freedom she thought she would find upon her arrival had quickly turned into a fight to survive. Hosea was a picture of God reaching out to sinning Israel and dragging her back to a clean life. Now I know to be loved by Christ is the ultimate joy and fulfillment. And what she hates most are the men who use her, leaving her empty and dead inside. Back in the city, Angel is forced back into prostitution, but finds it more difficult now to remain distant. This little girl becomes a beautiful woman who has had to harden her heart in order to deal with her life as a prostitute. That alone explains why Christian authors need to be careful with their content, they are representing Jesus.
Michael had to wait years for his beloved Sarah Angel to let him into her heart. For the subject matter and details given I would have give it at R rating. His touch had healed her body and opened her heart. I'm glad that many of my friends have loved this one but this certainly isn't for me. Looking past the forced marriage, rape, beatings and child rape described in the book. The prose is average at best, the historical setting adequate.
