Publisher's Summary

In the dramatic conclusion to the New York Times best seller Her Mother’s Hope, Francine Rivers delivers a rich and deeply moving story about the silent sorrows that can tear a family apart and the grace and forgiveness that can heal even the deepest wounds.

Growing up isn’t easy for little Carolyn Arundel. With her mother, Hildemara, quarantined to her room with tuberculosis, Carolyn forms a special bond with her oma Marta, who moves in to care for the household. But as tensions between Hildie and Marta escalate, Carolyn believes she is to blame. When Hildie returns to work and Marta leaves, Carolyn and her brother grow up as latchkey kids in a world gripped by the fear of the Cold War.

College offers Carolyn the chance to find herself, but a family tragedy shatters her newfound independence. Rather than return home, she cuts all ties and disappears into the heady counterculture of San Francisco. When she reemerges two years later, more lost than ever, she reluctantly turns to her family to help rebuild a life for her and her own daughter, May Flower Dawn.

Just like Carolyn, May Flower Dawn develops a closer bond with her grandmother, Hildie, than with her mother, causing yet another rift between generations. But as Dawn struggles to avoid the mistakes of those who went before her, she vows that somehow she will be a bridge between the women in her family rather than the wall that separates them forever.

Spanning from the 1950s to present day, Her Daughter’s Dream is the emotional final chapter of an unforgettable family saga about the sacrifices every mother makes for her daughter—and the very nature of unconditional love.

    Story
    "Opened my eyes!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES! This book is the sequel to Her Mother's Hope. I was so impressed with the very real story line and how it relates to regular families and helped me to see how actions that appear to be heartless and cruel may be seen by the other person as actions of love. I evaluated my family and saw so many comparisons it opened old wounds and gave me a new perspective. Thank you Francine Rivers!!!


    Who was the most memorable character of Her Daughter’s Dream and why?

    Caroline - who silently endured what appeared to be rejection and emotional abuse and finds out in the end the real story behind her mother's actions in the end. Heart touching and life changing. If we could all quietly search for deep truth our families could possibly mend and be healthy.


    Any additional comments?

    I was reminded of my mother actions toward me over and over during this series. My heart ached at times but in a healing way. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERIES!

    In this second book , again I couldn't stop listening to it. I'm more hopeful with the future of my marriage, and relationships with my Babydolls because of this book. I thank God for Francine Rivers and the blessings of her many talents. This book is awesome and truly a blessing!

    "A great story"

    Awesome story, I am sad it's finished, because it feels like I'm missing some really good friends tonight. I highly recommend Francine Rivers to anyone who has not listened to her stories before.

    "Wonderful story!"

    A remarkable journey across generations, showcasing how perception from one person to the next can be completely skewed if lines of communication are not open.

    "Loved the whole series"

    Stina Neilson narrated this series beautifully! The listener knows each character by the tone of her voice. I absolutely loved this series. Listen to both books. Love is brought to light through our dysfunctional ways. God always can break through our walls.
