I highly recommend this book to everyone,because in reality we all need to get out of our comfort zone and live dangerously, and that is exactly what this book calls us to do.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House publishers, but the opinions expressed are entirely my own.
Because of content issues I would only recommend this book to older mature teenagers or adults.It is not an easy light read that is enjoyable.It is a good read,but it deals with some very unsavory stuff, that even as an adult can be hard to take. That being said it does a great job at making the story of Hosea and Gomer all the more alive and for that reasons alone I highly recommend it.

I thought this was an interesting, thought provoking book. I wasn't quite as sold out on it as I was the first book by these authors,but I thought it had some good insights and was an interesting read. That being said I think this book has some very valuable advice and is given from a unique perspective.

This book was wonderful and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to be encouraged and challenged by the saying of Jesus "I was a stranger and you welcomed me" and the results that followed.

I was really wanting to like this book, it sounded exactly like the sort of books I would adore, but I was not crazy about the style of writing nor the subject matter she choose to put in the book. I thought for a Christian book it was a bit more sensual writing than I cared to read.
I am sure that some people would enjoy this book,but I personally did not find it to be to my taste.
