About the Book
Hosea has been charged by God with a difficult task—marry a prostitute in order to show God’s people the nature and depth of his love for Israel…
When Hosea goes to Israel to proclaim God’s message, the prostitute God tells him to marry turns out to be his childhood friend Gomer. He finds her broken and abused, unwilling to trust Hosea or his God. But when marrying Hosea becomes her only choice, Gomer does what she’s good at—she survives. Can Hosea’s love for God and God’s love for Israel heal Gomer’s broken spirit?
With her potent combination of in-depth research and masterful storytelling, Mesu Andrews brings to life a complex and fascinating biblical story of the power of love and forgiveness in the face of utter betrayal.

Endorsements for Love in a Broken Vessel
Reviewed By: Lindy J. Swanson, Romantic Times
“Andrews guides readers to fully grasp the ministry of Hosea. She creates biblical characters who are lively and vivacious and hold our attention. Their lives become a rich tapestry to find the One True God. The author is undoubtedly passionate about a believer’s quest to reconnect with God. This read exquisitely brings the Bible to life.
God speaks to Hosea; he rises to the challenges of delivering God’s messages to people who have been led astray. Elohim protects Hosea and he meets with his childhood friend, who is now the leading prostitute of a brothel. He wishes to bring her to the prophet’s camp and give her time to heal from a horrid beating. Will their friendship last even when there is betrayal beyond measure?”
