Though Gomer was Hosea's childhood sweetheart, he wasn't hers. Gomer wanted a much different life filled with partying, baubles, and men. And lots of both. Then one day after coming home from a secret "liason" she discovered that Hosea, now a prophet of Yahweh in the Northern Kingdom of Samaria, had just finished negotiating to make Gomer his wife. Their marriage is beset by crisis after crisis until one day and three children later, Gomer runs out on her family to pursue the "good" life.


Years pass. Then comes that tragic day when she realizes her looks and lovers have left her. Now what will she do? What happens next in this gritty short story of abiding love will stun you. Hope, Love and Faithfulness still live.


Illustrated with beautiful four-color and black and white graphics.

Background


This story takes place after secession and civil war over high taxes had divided the nation of Israel into two nations: the northern kingdom called Israel and the southern kingdom called Judah.


The story's approximate time frame is 780BC to 725BC.


Hosea, son of the village baker Beeri, is instructed to marry Gomer, his childhood sweetheart turned prostitute. Their marriage, explains Yahweh, is a portrait of Israel's unfaithfulness. After the birth of each of their three children, God instructs Hosea to name each child as a description of not only Israel's spiritual condition, but also Gomer's.


In time, Gomer decides to run out on her family and pursue the good life. But when her looks and lovers leave, who will save her?
