About "Her Daughter's Dream (Large Print) (#02 in Marta's Legacy Series)"
In the dramatic conclusion to the New York Times bestseller Her Mother's Hope, Francine Rivers delivers a rich and deeply moving story about the silent sorrows that can tear a family apart and the grace and forgiveness that can heal even the deepest wounds. Growing up isn't easy for little Carolyn Arundel. With her mother, Hildemara, quarantined to her room with tuberculosis, Carolyn forms a special bond with her oma Marta, who moves in to care for the household. College offers Carolyn the chance to find herself, but a family tragedy shatters her newfound independence. Rather than return home, she cuts all ties and disappears into the heady counterculture of San Francisco. When she reemerges two years later, more lost than ever, she reluctantly turns to her family to help rebuild a life for her and her own daughter, May Flower Dawn. Spanning from the 1950s to the present day, Her Daughter's Dream is the emotional final chapter of an unforgettable family saga about the sacrifices every mother makes for her daughter and the very nature of unconditional love.
Meet the Author
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.

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.

This is the second book of a two part series by Francine Rivers. The first book is called, "A mother's hope", which tells the story of a young girl who leaves home to make a life for herself. She then becomes a mother, so we read about her relationship with one of her daughter's. In the second book we read about her daughter's life and their relationship. Finally the daughter has a daughter, so then the book describes their relationship. These two books go together. It's very interesting to read about the choices the women make and how their behaviour affects others. I highly recommend the two books.
Wow another amazing page turner story from Francine Rivers she has done it again I was intrigued and inspired by this beautiful story about 3 generations of women all different in their own way. You need to read the 1st book to have a understanding of the remarkable story of motherdaughter relationships which is so important to build up when they are at a young age as you will find out from this book. It's so important to have a close bond with your daughter to build up their trust and respect for you as if you don't their is distance and a wall is between you and it can take years maybe to break through it. Having faith in God is very important as God gives us hope, Love is very important too always show affection towards your children. This book was just as good as the 1st both books were so detailed and Francine gets you really into the story. I would highly recommend this book to anyone especially mothers. I like everything about the story and how it ends.
"Her Daughter's Dream" is the brilliant final book of the series "Marta's Legacy". Like the first book, this is nearly impossible to put down once you start it. I laughed and cried my way through the story and I am sure most readers would relate to it. It is so believable and realistic. The most fabulous fiction I have ever read. I highly recommend.
