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.
New York Times best-selling author Francine Rivers (born 1947) began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were highly acclaimed by readers and reviewers. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, a mother of three, and an established romance novelist.
Five years after becoming a born-again Christian in 1986, Francine released Redeeming Love as her statement of faith. This retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea, set during the time of the California Gold Rush, is now considered by many to be a classic work of Christian fiction. The popularity of Redeeming Love continues unabated over a quarter of a century after its publication.
Since Redeeming Love, Francine has published numerous novels with Christian themes - all best sellers. The Last Sin Eater, earned her the CBA Gold Medal award and has since been made into a feature film - She has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her Christian novels have been awarded or nominated for numerous honours, including the RITA Award, the Christy Award, the ECPA Gold Medallion, and the Holt Medallion in Honour of Outstanding Literary Talent. In 1997, after winning her third RITA Award for inspirational fiction, Francine was inducted into the Romance Writers of America's Hall of Fame. Francine's books have been translated into over thirty languages, and she enjoys best-seller status in many countries, including Germany, the Netherlands, and South Africa.
Francine and her husband, Rick, live in northern California and enjoy time spent with their three grown children and taking every opportunity to spoil their grandchildren. Francine uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and she desires that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.
