Book Recommendation: Her Mother’s Hope by Francine Rivers

Francine Rivers really changed my life.

That sounds trite, I understand, but she did.

Before I read her, I loved to read and to write, but I never understood the power of words. However, when I read Redeeming Love I realized the power of the written word. How a book can sneak down to your core and heal parts of you that you never knew were broken.

After reading Redeeming Love, I ravaged the rest of the books that she had written and loved every single one of them. But then I was sad because for 7 years, she has not written a full length novel. SEVEN YEARS!

But the wait is over with this incredible story about a mother and daughter’s love spanned through time and generations.
It’s one of those stories that as you see it unfolding, as you understand the hurt and the reasons behind actions you want to cry for Marta, but you know Hildie does not understand. Yet the hurt continues and lays deeper layers of hurt. Ahh! You just want to hug both of them and send them to counseling and let them lay it all out there so that they can both have the relationship they are craving.

As I got towards the end of the book, I realized that there is no way that this story was going to be able to end. And sure enough, when I “virtually” flipped the last page (on my Kindle), I saw that the second part to this Duet will be released later this year.

I’m not going to spoil this story, but it’s a great book. An even greater book to use as a book club piece as it already has the questions in the back.
Go get it right now and read it.

5 out of 5 stars, recommend.

  1. So I just read Redeeming Love because you and Courtney and Tiff had so much praise for it – and I had such a hard time getting into it at first. I just didn't quite fall in love…then the book went on, the story grew and I realized 2/3 of the way through I seriously cared about what was happening. I'm not sure it connects with me on the level you felt it, but I did enjoy it and will maybe follow up with another novel of hers someday.
