More About Francine Rivers
Francine Rivers began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market and her books were awarded or nominated for numerous awards and prizes. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, mother of three, and an established romance novelist. Shortly after becoming a born-again Christian in 1986, Francine wrote Redeeming Love as her statement of faith. First published by Bantam Books, and then re-released by Multnomah Publishers in the mid- 1990s, this retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea set during the time of the California Gold Rush is now considered a classic work of Christian fiction and continues to be one of the Christian Booksellers Association’s top-selling titles; it has held a spot on the Christian bestseller list for nearly a decade.
Since Redeeming Love, Francine has published more than 20 novels with Christian themes - all bestsellers- and she has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her Christian novels have been awarded or nominated for numerous awards including the RITA Award, the Christy Award, the ECPA Gold Medallion, and the Holt Medallion in Honor of Outstanding Literary Talent. In 1997, after winning her third RITA award for Inspirational Fiction, Francine was inducted into the Romance Writers’ of America Hall of Fame. In 2007, the feature-length film version of her novel The Last Sin Eater was released in theaters by Fox Faith. In March 2010, Francine officially became a New York Times bestselling author, when Her Mother’s Hope debuted at #12 on the hardcover fiction bestsellers lists. The sequel, Her Daughter’s Dream, debuted at #12 on the same list just 6 months later, in September, 2010. Francine’s novels have been translated into over twenty different languages and she enjoys best-seller status in many foreign countries including Germany, The Netherlands, and South Africa.
Francine and her husband Rick live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their five grandchildren. She uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.
Francine Rivers currently resides in the state of California. Francine Rivers was born in 1947.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Prince: Jonathan (Sons of Encouragement Series #3)?
Slight disappointment Jul 14, 2008
Rivers is a wonderful author and I expected these books to be as good as her Lineage of Grace series. They were not quite there...
Beautiful May 19, 2008
Maybe it's because Jonathan has always been one of my heroes or maybe it's just because he was such an amazing person, but I found this book fantastic. It's beautifully written and does justice to Jonathan's story. I don't think a book has ever really made me cry, but the end of this book was so beautifully written and so powerful that I just falt out bawled. It was a great story that was beatifully written and has really made me feel a closeness to the character and to God alike. If the author ever reads this, I just want to tell you Ms. Rivers, that I really enjoyed it and I thank you for doing such a wonderful job with one of my favorite heroes from the bible.
Great Reading! Nov 11, 2007

What a Blessing! Aug 8, 2007
I loved this book... I felt like I was right there with Jonathan sharing his thoughts. I found myself feeling so proud of his faithfulness to and love for God as well as his devotion to his father and to David. What a blessing!
Wow Feb 12, 2007
