Book Blogger Hop

Books to movies — what a great concept!  I love seeing my favorite books on the big screen.  The best adaptations I have seen — Pride and Prejudice (the one with Colin Firth), Persuasion, Jane Eyre, The Lord of The Rings.  But there is always the chance that the producers will take your favorite and change it.  The Count of Monte Cristo is probably my all time favorite book, and I was so looking forward to the movie.  And it was good until the end.  The whole message of the book was changed by the ending!  My children loved it; I was incensed!  So this weeks Book Blogger Hop questions is:


“What book(s) would you like to see turned into a movie?”


If Hollywood would keep to the story, I would love to see Francine Rivers’ Redeeming Love made into a movie. What a great romance!  And what a wonderful picture of God’s love for us.


California’s gold country, 1850. A time when men sold their souls for a bag of gold and women sold their bodies for a place to sleep.  Angel expects nothing from men but betrayal. Sold into prostitution as a child, she survives by keeping her hatred alive. And what she hates most are the men who use her, leaving her empty and dead inside. Then she meets Michael Hosea. A man who seeks his Father’s heart in everything, Michael Hosea obeys God’s call to marry Angel and to love her unconditionally. Slowly, day by day, he defies Angel’s every bitter expectation until, despite her resistance her frozen heart begins to thaw. But with her unexpected softening come overwhelming feelings of unworthiness and fear. And so Angel runs. Back to the darkness, away from her husband’s pursuing love, terrified of the truth she can no longer deny: Her final healing must come from the One who loves her even more than Michael Hosea does…the One who will never let her go.  A life-changing story of God’s unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love. Over 1 million copies sold!

    I’ve read a few rumors that Redeeming Love may actually be made into a movie. I hope they’re true! 🙂
