Publisher's Description

Este es el primero de dos libros en una saga que explora las complicadas relaciones entre madres e hijas a través de cuatro generaciones. A finales del siglo XIX, la fogosa Marta deja Suiza decidida a encontrar la vida bajo sus propios términos. Su educador viaje la lleva a través de Europa y Canadá, y finalmente la carga con la compañía de hijos y un esposo en el valle central de California. Las experiencias de Marta la convencen de que sólo los fuertes sobreviven —y ella decide criar hijos fuertes. Hildie, la hija mayor de Marta, tiene el servicio a otros en su corazón, y la inflexible crianza de Marta deja a Hildie hambrienta por el amor de su madre. El llamado de Hildie para ser enfermera le da independencia, además del respeto de su madre. En medio del drama de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Hildie se enamora y empieza su propia familia. Ella quiere que su hija nunca dude de su amor —pero los retos de la vida conspiran en contra de su promesa. Esta saga trata sobre cómo romper los ciclos generacionales dañinos, encaminarse a la reconciliación y restaurar las relaciones más importantes de la vida.

This is the first in a two-book saga that explores the complicated relationships between mothers and daughters over four generations. Near the turn of the 20th century, fiery Marta leaves Switzerland determined to find life on her own terms. Her formative journey takes her through Europe, Canada, and finally lands her with children and husband in tow in the central valley of California. Marta’s experiences convince her that only the strong survive—and she determines to raise strong children. Hildie, Marta’s oldest daughter, has a heart to serve others, and Marta’s hardnosed parenting leaves Hildie hungry for the love of her mother. Hildie’s calling as a nurse gives her independence, if not the respect of her mother. Each woman is forced to confront her faulty, but well-meaning desire to help her daughter find her God-given place in the world. This saga is about breaking hurtful generational cycles and moving toward reconciling and restoring life’s most important relationships.

    Francine Rivers is my favorite author. Her latest novel, Her Mother's Hope, was not a disappointment. I loved it, and I cannot wait until Her Daughter's Dream releases in September. These books tell a beautiful generational family drama. Her Mother's Dream starts with Marta's story, whose difficult childhood sends her traveling to reach her dreams. Tragedy back home just pushes her harder, and eventually she ends up in Canada, where she starts her own family. The second half of the book is about Marta's firstborn daughter, Hildemara. She reminds Marta of her sister, and Marta determines to force some fire into her. Hildemara's dream is to become a nurse, and she pursues that dream, facing a couple of obstacles along the way. The mother daughter relationships are the focus of this incredible story, spanning both World Wars. The historical details added depth to the story. The characters were well-developed and three-dimensional. I always understood their behavior and decisions, and I could see both sides to each situation. The family interactions were extremely believable and realistic. I came away re-examining my own relationship with my parents and how that influences what type of parent I am. I loved this book and would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. If you haven't read it...you should. It is a wonderful novel that demonstrates the importance of communication within families. Honestly, I would recommend any book written by Francine Rivers.
