Love in a Broken Vessel by Mesu Andrews ~ Review

Love in a Broken Vessel
My Review: A beautiful telling of Hosea and Gomer's tale of love and redemption.

To be completely honest I was pretty hesitant to begin this book as I knew the general drift of the story and that it would be a heart breaker, and at times hard to read. But I dove in and found myself flipping the pages as if I'd never heard the story before.

I loved how Ms. Andrews rendered the characters in such a way that I felt for them and understood why they did they things they did, and the how the world they were living in affected them and their circumstances.

Throughout this book I could tell that hours of serious research was put into this book, because of how realistically Hosea and Gomer's world was brought to life.

In conclusion, what a hard story to tell, yet Ms. Andrews pulled it off in a way that I couldn't help but love! That doesn't happen everyday now does it? This is a beautiful, yet heart-breaking story and I think that Ms. Andrews handled the tougher parts well, giving the emotion, yet few details. Ms. Andrews continues to surprise me, with how much I love her masterful tellings of what it might have been like in Bible times. 5 stars for this excellent book!

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
