Is there a secret terrible enough that it should never be revealed, not even if it was tearing a family apart? For more than five decades Emma Bauer has kept one--carefully guarding it with all her strength, and for more than five decades that choice has haunted her life and also the lives of her daughters and granddaughter. Is it too late for wrongs to be righted? Does Emma even have the strength to let the healing power of truth work in her family?
The story of four generations of women and the powerful effects that their choices have had on their lives is at the heart of Eve's Daughters, an epic novel from author Lynn Austin. Grand in scope but tender and personal at the same time, it will please you as a fan of contemporary or historical fiction.
Exploring times from World War I to the 980s, Eve's Daughters is an insightful look at mothers, daughters, sisters, and families that allows you to see a little bit of yourself through the characters' triumphs, struggles, and hard-tested faith.
Yearning for love, dignity, and freedom, the four generations of women must come to terms with the choices they have made. Healing comes when the past is forgiven but only when they embrace God's forgiveness can they shatter the cycle that has ruled their lives over the decades.

First book of Lynn Austin's I had ever read;went on to read A Woman's Place andAll She Ever Wanted. Love them all-but Eve's Daughters is my fav. I love the showing of how our God forgives. I have ancestors who had the conflict of the different "Faiths" Prodestant and Catholic; this book helped me understand the history of the conflict. Will recomand this book!

Excellent. Have passed this one on to friends at church and also non-christian family. It is amazing how bad decisions can hurt future generations, and how secrets are not as bad in the light.

Beautiful story about the love and forgiveness of our savior. It made me want to cry as I read the last page.
