This story is a beautiful love story, and also a retelling of the Biblical account of Hosea and Gomer. Set in the 1850's this is a story that brings the time period alive as well as the characters and the feelings between the characters. Rivers does a wonderful job of creating the story and drawing the reader right into it and keeping her there until the very end.
