The beginning of this book is very dark and hard to read. The main character is subjected to one heartache after another and then abused in ways that are unimaginable to most.

The book then skips ahead in time and meets up with the character who is now older, jaded, and hopeless. In the midst of this, her hero enters the scene and a overblown and completely unrealistic romance novel begins.

Other characters enter the book. Some show love and others continue to victimize her. Two of these new characters, one "good" girl falls in love with the man who continued to victimize the main character. Here is where I gave up on the book. I finished reading it because it was a book that my book club was reading, so I made it to the melodramatic end that was only fit for a cheap romance novel.

While this book may bear the title "Redeeming Love", there was nothing that I loved about it and it possessed little redemptive value.
