    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.

    An excellent tale about the ins and outs of married life and how God can make a marriage what it should be. You can really relate to the characters as you see different aspects of your own life in them.

    The Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers is the story of Sierra Madrid in present day California and her ancestor Mary Kathryn McMurray during their journey across the Oregon Trail.

    When I first began reading this book, I really didn't like the character Sierra. I felt that she was a whiny, ungrateful, mean-spirited, selfish person. It was actually very difficult for me to get into the book because of those feelings. I am happy to say that she goes through life-changing circumstances and by the end of the book I liked the character.

    This book is a very good read. I especially enjoyed the excerpts from Mary Kathryn's journal on their Oregon Trail journey. I recommend reading this book. I can't say that I would read it again, but I did enjoy it and am happy to have read it.

    I love the way Francine Rivers paralleled two lives, one from the present and one from the past. I could not put the book down until I finished it. I would highley recommend.
