I must admit this was my 5th Francine Rivers book and not my favorite. I started out with redeemed love , so you can expect that is a hard act to follow. SPOILER ALERT: this book covers a family's life over many years time and I love that. My only complaint is that the main character had a very bad attitude towards life most of the time I didn't really see it change much. I was hoping for a happier ending I guess. I love how real her characters emotions are and how you can see God working in the background through her writing. Francine Rivers is BY FAR my favorite author on the planet! :)
Wonderful story about a mothers love and a daughter's love,as well as the different perspectives they have on their relationships. There was also a interesting lesson on history and how people lived in the early 1900s through World War II. I'm anxious to read the next book
Every Christian woman, wife or mother should read this book.
it encourages, motivates, inspires hope, faith, love and strength of character.
Martha's reflection about her life in retrospect; how she realizes where she may have made mistakes with her daughter and then sets out to correct them.
Of course, speed. But more seriously, she brings it to life and makes it so very real!
Martha is a round character. She reflects God's love and patience towards us. Even when we think we are always right; He lovingly and patiently guides us to see life through His eyes.
She is a great example of the Virtuous woman in the Bible.
I really love this book and would recommend it especially to all mothers.
