    I absolutely LOVED this story. This is truly a beautiful story of two women journey to the ultimate love of life, our Heavenly Father. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of reading this book. It tells of life, love, hurt, healing and restoration. Most of all it reminds us that always through everything .god and his love for us is what takes us through every difficulty, joy and circumstances that we face even when we don't always see and recognize it. I like that Sierra and her ancestor Mary both saw it in time. I loved the prayers of their heart to our precious father in heaven, I am moved to tears by them. The love story between Sierra and Alex really touched me and I grieved at the hurt they all went through. I was of course delighted by their reconciliation and wish that every marriage which breaks down would get a chance for healing like that. Francine Rivers has done another excellent job and I applaud her on The Scarlett Thread. I highly recommend this book to all readers

    The Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers is NOT my favorite book. It probably never will be, no matter how many times I read it. I can't even say I like Sierra, the main character of the novel, or what she does, or Alex, the other main character. Why not? Because reading this book is like holding up a mirror and looking at myself, square in the face. Never did I feel I was inside Sierra's mind, but often I felt she had invaded mine.

    This novel actually is a story within a story, telling the story of Sierra along side the story of Mary Katherine. Both left their comfortable life among family to follow their husbands, and did this unwillingly. Though many years separated them, the two stories (Mary Katherine's narrative told through her journal which survived all those centuries) are closer than is comfortable. This clearly shows that humans through the ages have battled the same enemy. Ms. Rivers does not hesitate to write about the hard issues, and does not gloss over the repercussions that might arise from them.

    This is truly a romantic story, not so much between husband and wife, though that is definitely there, but between God and His crowning creation. How He pursues us, and uses our choices and decisions to call us to Him. How He is always there, waiting for us to turn to Him at our lowest point, when we feel the most insignificant and always loving us, even when our determination is to have nothing to do with Him.

    So even though this is not my favorite book by Francine Rivers, this is one that has a permanent and prominent spot on my bookselves.

    The Scarlet Thread is another great read from Francine Rivers. The story centers around the struggle between a husband and wife who discover how very different they are in interests and life goals. Francine Rivers is effective in portraying the sin nature of each and gives a convicting picture of how selfishness destroys us. I was disappointed with a couple of ideas that could be drawn from the conclusion to the story: some might read that the wife was to blame for the husband's faults and that it is possible to be a Christian without really being committed to Christ (Of course, Christians sin, and sin terribly, but far too many in our society believe that as long as you've prayed a certain prayer and can say the right words, you're a believer no matter what.) However, I'm not sure that Rivers was actually trying to make these points; they may have simply resulted from the story being narrated from the wife's point of view. Overall, the plot is engaging, realistic, and God-glorifying. Any reader would find reflections of themselves in the characters and hopefully be encouraged to draw near to Christ.
