Paperback
The first in an epic two-book saga by beloved author Francine Rivers, this New York Times best-selling story explores the complicated relationships between mothers and daughters over several generations.

Near the turn of the twentieth century, fiery Marta Schneider leaves Switzerland for a better life, determined to fulfill her mother's 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.

Marta's 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 mother's 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.

Meet the Author

Francine Rivers

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.

Interesting Eye Opener!
5 stars By Olivia, Jul 05 2018
I have read a few of Francine Rivers books and this is one of her best! From the moment you start reading this book you just want to know what is going to happen next. Francine has a talent to draw you into the book and really stay interested from start to finish. This book is about a mother's struggle with life you will read about Marta a strong, courageous, selfless women that wants to follow her dreams and make a life for herself the best that she can. At times she will frustrate you, shake her if you could, cry (I didn't but if your sensitive you will) and be happy for her. It was good to read from a mothers view and see what went wrong and what went right as we can often be blind of how we treat we children this was a eye opener.  A enjoyable book overall to read only took me 2 weeks to read and now I am reading the 2nd one!

A great novel
5 stars By Mariquita, Jun 08 2018
This novel was hard to put down. It's the first of a two part series about a mother and a daughter's relationship. The novel first describes the relationship between the main character, Marta, and her mother. Then it describes the relationship between Marta with one of her daughters. I highly recommend this book. I look forward to reading the second book in this series.

Can't put this down
5 stars By Ling, Apr 06 2017
I started on this book with low expectations as the book cover didn't look very exciting. The story started off slow but it soon picked up pace and I found myself staying up to read it every night. The storyline is solid and it spans across several generations and historical periods. Fantastic book that deserves more than one reading!

Lovely novel
5 stars By Madeleine, Jun 28 2016
Her Mother's Hope is another great book by Francine Rivers. It is hard to put down once you start reading - its a great thing that its a thick book because its a story you don't want to end. I also love how the book is split into the point of view from both the mother and then the daughter. The story is one that everyone can relate to.

Riveting
5 stars By EstherN, Sep 05 2015
Her mother's hope is a relatable book about a mother's relationship with her daughter. Definitely a page turner. A confronting book detailing what a woman had to go through to be where she's at, looking back on her relationship with her own motherfamily and her dealings with her own family especially her daughter and how God played a role in all of it. I can't wait to read further to the second book in the series 'Her daughter's dream'. A definite must read! I would buy this 2 book series as gifts for friendsfamilies who love to read.
