My favorite author is Francine Rivers. I adore this woman. The Lord has gifted her with tremendous talent, and she glorifies Him through every word.
The thing that amazes me about Francine's writing is how effortlessly she weaves God's word into her stories. I've come to realize that the reason it seems so natural is that her characters have incredible depth. Francine writes their thoughts and feelings with such fullness; such fluidity, that the reader lives the characters' lives. We experience their struggles. And when we come to the Bible verses, so beautifully woven into the prose, they speak to us because they're exactly what WE need to hear.
Francine, thank you for your inspiraton. God Bless.
