Angel, living in California’s Gold country, is sold into prostitution as a child and quickly learns that men want only one thing from her and are never to be trusted. It is her burning hatred towards these men that keep her alive and she has no intention of changing her ways until Michael Hosea, a godly man, declares God has called upon him to marry her and love her unconditionally. Angel leaves her difficult life behind and slowly, day by day, her heart starts to warm towards Michael. But with these new feelings of affection come overwhelming feelings of unworthiness and fear. Can Angel overcome these feelings of shame and accept Michael’s love and the love of God who loves her unconditionally? This classic story of God’s unconditional love has captured the hearts of millions worldwide.
