A New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller.
Her Mothers Hope has all the meaty elements of a blockbuster. The Denver Post
The first in a two-book saga by the beloved author of Redeeming Love and The Masterpiece, Her Mothers Hope is a rich, moving epic about faith and dreams, heartache and disappointment, and the legacy of love passed down through four generations in one family.
Near the turn of the twentieth century, fiery Marta Schneider leaves Switzerland for a better life, determined to fulfill her mothers hope. Her formative journey takes her through Europe and eventually to Canada, where she meets handsome Niclas Waltert. But nothing has prepared her for the sacrifices she must make for marriage and motherhood as she travels to the Canadian wilderness and then to the dusty Central Valley of California to raise her family. Martas hope is to give her children a better life, but experience has taught her that only the strong survive. Her tough love is often misunderstood, especially by her oldest daughter, Hildemara Rose, who craves her mothers acceptance. Amid the drama of World War II, Hildie falls in love and begins a family of her own. But unexpected and tragic events force mother and daughter to face their own shortcomings and the ever-widening chasm that threatens to separate them forever.
Emotionally rich . . . As her compelling characters seek to do what they feel their faith demands, Rivers sets their resonant struggles against dusty streets, windswept Canadian plains, and California vineyards in vivid scenes readers will not soon forget. Booklist, starred review
Writers like Rivers are why people buy Christian fiction: its dramatic, engaging . . . [and] this well-told tale will have readers eagerly awaiting the storys resolution. Publishers Weekly

Q: Would the Francine Rivers books be appropriate for young teens? Thank you for your help.
The books are highly subjective as to levels of appropriateness. If your child has been protected from some of the less righteous aspects of humanity, the books may be too intense for younger readers. If the children have a good grasp of the realities of humanity's rebellion, the books should not be a problem.
As each parent and child are different, please use discernment when determining if you want your child to read any book.
