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.

    "Absolutely captivating!"

    What a beautiful story of love, tragedy, generational dysfunction, and healing. I laughed, raged, became frustrated and cried along with the characters. My only complaint is that it ended so very abruptly, leaving Hildamara's reaction to the letters exchanged between her Mother Marta & Rose up to the reader to imagine. I'm sure it was just as healing as the time Faith was born. I highly recommend this series. Such a wonderful story of faith and perseverance.

    "Stina Nielsen is a wonderful performer"

    What a fantastic performance of the book. She brings every character to life - I was mesmerized until the very end. Even though I'd read the book previously, listening to this book was an entirely new experience.

    "Loosely developed"

    I love Francine Rivers....this is the 9th book of hers that I've read &/or listened to. This book was my least favorite, & surprisingly so because I really liked the 1st book in this series "Her Mother's Hope."
    The plot & characters were weak. Probably should've listened to the abridged version to cut out some unnecessary details.

    "Another amazing book by Francine!"

    I hesitated to read these two books because I knew that the main characters would change. HOWEVER, as sad as I was to go from mother to daughter, I kept falling in love with each one... and seeing myself in each one. Beautiful love story between mothers and daughters!

    "Excellent story and narration"

    Rivers takes you through the trials and joys of four generations of women. While quite emotional, the story invokes thought and reflection on several themes, including family and relationships, work ethic, faith and gratitude/thankfulness. Another truly great story from Ms. Rivers.
