Her Daughter’s Dream

In the compelling conclusion to the New York Times best-seller Her Mother’s Hope, Christy Award-winning author Francine Rivers explores the sorrow that can tear families apart and the grace that can heal the deepest wounds.

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.

    "What a Great Book!"

    This book is fantastic. Very touching story. I loved Stina Nielsen as the narrator. Great fluctuation of the voice, accents, etc. Francine Rivers is one of my favorite authors.

    "Better than the first"

    Great series, if you can call 2 books a series. I was sad when it came to an end. Francine Rivers is a talented author. This was the first time I had listened to her work and really enjoyed both. Also, the narrator, Stina Nielsen, was a perfect choice.

    Story
    "The Dreams Continue"

    The ending of Her Mother's Hope left me with an urgent need to keep going with these characters. The segue was flawless. A few times I was uncomfortable remembering how I must have disappointed my own mother or failed my own daughter, but that simply tells you how powerful the writing is and how true to life. Try not to worry too much, because . . . well, I don't want to give anything away. Just believe me when I say you will not be disappointed. I can't say enough good things about the narrator, Stina Nielsen. She is consummately talented.
    I just cannot recommend this audio book and its predecessor highly enough!

    "So glad she continued this story!!!"

    Continuing on with these characters was a great idea, I certainly wasn't ready to let them go! Francine Rivers did a great job, I love a book I don't want to lay down, or in this case shut off my iphone!!! I cut grass, washed horses, cleaned house and listened in the car! I couldn't wait to get a few minutes to listen to my book! Just hated for it to end and that makes a great book! I hope she has something else soon!

    "Wonderful, Christian based story of four generations of women's love, faith and mistaken and unspoken feelings"

    Excellent life stories of Godly love and redemption.

    This is the second of two novels, that speaks of love and the need for all of us to love one another.
