Book Review - "Love in a Broken Vessel"

Mesu Andrews' latest Biblical fiction novel, "Love in a Broken Vessel," is once again a masterpiece just like her previous novels!  Hosea is commanded by God to marry a prostitute in order to show Israel's relationship with God.  Gomer has been living a hard life and has changed since Hosea knew her during their childhood and she is hesitate to leave with Hosea; yet it would mean her escape from the path her life is currently on.  Are these two too different to find a way together or will they both listen to God and follow His direction?
Mesu Andrews does an incredible job with writing and bringing Biblical accounts to life!  The story is kept intact and filled with Biblical truth while some fictional details are added in based upon research and sticking to the Biblical foundation.  I feel like I know so much more about this account now and am excited to go read the book of Hosea as I have this story fresh in my mind.  This is an excellent story and one not to be missed if you enjoy Biblical fiction!
