LISTEN TO THE VOICE....  Mar 22, 2007

Warner: The Lord has placed a call oh his hear to marry none other than famous Marin-the actress. As always everything in perfect in the beginning. Two children later and bored staying home and craving the lights and actions of Hollywood; Marin goes back...or at least tries. Soon after the parts and roles she receives isn't enough and once again she craves more which leads her to the wrong place meeting t he wrong people; in time she tries drugs for the first time and it ends up destroying not only her but her family as well.

With a husband so strong and following the voice of the Lord he forgives Miran (even though its hard) and welcomes her back with open arms.

JT gives us a better understanding of the story of Hosea and Gomer...

You're laugh and cry as you follow this remarkable story.
(RAW Rating: 4.5) - Unconditional Love  Mar 21, 2007
Jacquelin Thomas's latest novel, REDEMPTION, is a compelling story about unconditional love that closely mirrors the biblical story of Hosea. In short, REDEMPTION is a love story about Warner and Marin. Warner is the pastor of a prestigious church whose weekly sermons are televised throughout the world. More than anything, Warner desires to live his life according to God's will. Warner is a single man, and he asks God to lead him to his wife. You can only imagine the response he gets when he announces his future wife will be an insecure actress named Marin Alexander, a woman who in the view of most is hardly cut out to be a first lady. Nonetheless, the couple marry and begin their life together. But just as in the Bible story, Marin struggles with her new life. She has difficulty balancing her career with her roles as a wife, first lady, and eventually mother. Further, her insecurities make it hard for her to accept Warner's responsibilities as a pastor and his commitment to God. As the story unfolds, Marin's life takes numerous critical turns, but it is Warner's unconditional love that allows her to see the unconditional love of God and become the woman she is destined to be.

REDEMPTION is a story that is sure to touch the hearts of readers. The character development is thoughtful and thorough, allowing readers to "step inside" the heads and hearts of Marin and Warner and really understand who they are and why they make certain choices. It is easy to empathize with Marin's insecurities and to relate to her "I can do it on my own" mentality. Warner's unconditional love for Marin was inspiring, but because readers were privy to his inner thoughts he never comes across as naive. It is clear that despite his resolve to honor his wife and God's will, he had doubts, pain, and anger to cope with as well. The supporting characters added depth and a sense of realism to the story, and I especially liked how Thomas wove the actual Bible story into the plot. All in all, REDEMPTION is a powerful tale about life, love, and forgiveness.

interesting look at relationships   Mar 10, 2007
An unlikely couple is Hollywood superstar Marin Alexander and renowned televangelist Warner Brice although both are firm believers in God. Yet when they meet they fall in love. They marry, but being the preacher's wife devastates Marin's film career as parts she had before she said I do are no longer offered to her.

Marin also misses her friends as she finds life away from Hollywood boring. Hoping to salvage her career, she returns to Southern California and her old friends. This puts her at odds with Warner's vocation and threatens his ministry. His advisors tell him to give up on his sinner of a spouse though not by divorce while her pals tell her to drop the religious albatross that hinders her Hollywood career.

The Hollywood-preacher marriage makes for an interesting look at relationships as the lead couple shares love and strong beliefs in the Lord yet their marriage is in jeopardy as those powerful elements may prove insufficient. Though the Hollywood crowd seems hyperbolic hedonistic with drugs and sex especially when compared to Brice's pious followers, fans will enjoy the fall of an interesting person whose hope lies in REDEMPTION by returning to the Lord.

Phenomenal Book!  Mar 7, 2007
Jacquelin is definitely a talented writer, and this book proves it. I loved this beautiful biblically-based story and read it in one sitting. I finished the book with tears in my eyes. This is at the top of my recommendation list!
