Francine Rivers ist halt eine wirklich gute Autorin. So lebensnah und spannend. Man kann das Buch kaum weglegen bis es zu Ende gelesen ist.

HASH(0x8ead2d98) von 5 Sternen A Spellbinding Mother-Daughter Historical Novel Grounded in God's Faithfulness Through Life's Storms 17. September 2010
Von O. Merce Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I just finished reading this amazing book, the sequel to "Her Mother's Hope" (part two of a two part series called "Marta's Legacy"), and it was an unforgettable experience. The entire story (both books) follows family relationships, especially mother and daughter relationships spanning four generations. This second book, covering the time period from the 1950's to today, is even better, I think, than the first book (if that could be possible), as many loose ends are resolved and there are surprising conclusions. You find out what happens to the people you loved from the first book. Although this book was almost 600 pages, I hated for it to end. I felt as though I was so involved with the families and I knew that I was saying goodbye to their lives forever, although not to the lessons I've learned from them.

This is Christian fiction at its best, with fascinating historical details throughout and with events seen from the intriguing perspectives of the women of different generations. The voices change in both books, moving from mother to daughter (not alternating, but moving at a certain point--the first book covering Marta and Hildemara Rose and the second covering Carolyn and May Flower Dawn) so as a reader you have the opportunity to get to really know each of the women. All four of the women are in this second book. The theme of both books shows how imperfect people do their very best to be loving and yet sometimes their beloved family members just aren't able to see that love and misinterpret it. Sometimes, if we are blessed, the misperceptions can be corrected and so much healing can take place, with God's help. Through everything that happens to us, God's love is always, always there.

The two titles are taken from this sentence in one of the womens' journals: "I have lived out my mother's hope and pray I have given wings to my daughters' dreams." Each of the women in this two-book series tried to do this their own way and with God's help. This is a book that you will not be able to put down.

I suppose that it would be possible to just read this second book without the first, but I wouldn't do it. I would miss out on all of the pleasure of understanding the older women in the second book, of being familiar with their lives and of knowing why they were the way they were--how traumas and wounds had made them that way. I would miss seeing how they changed and grew over the years. I wouldn't see how profound it was that mistakes of one generation are passed down to subsequent generations...I would miss the richness of this incredible series. Read both.

Highly recommended.

HASH(0x8ead2cf0) von 5 Sternen Epic Saga Part 2 17. September 2010
Von Deborah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
After I finished reading the first book in this two book saga, Her Mother's Hope, I knew that September 2010 could not come fast enough for me to be able to read the sequel. The first book was exactly what a Francine Rivers book should be and I knew that I would not be disappointed when I finally got my hands on this book. Luckily the wait between books was only a couple months. Like the first book, it's over 500 pages but believe me, they fly by really fast. The first book in the series focused on Marta and her daughter Hildie. This book focuses on Hildie's daughter Carolyn and her own daughter, Dawn. The story starts in the 1950s and continues through each decade until the present day. It's a really interesting look into American history and culture.

The main focus of the book is how due to Marta's past mistakes at how she chose to raise Hildie, this has now become a trickle effect with future generations of the family. Four generations of these women have dysfunctional mother/daughter relationships and they don't improve over time. It is sad how these women missed out on so much because for whatever reason they chose not to show love to their own daughters. This book focuses on Carolyn and Dawn and their journey in trying to rectify what almost a century has wrecked havoc on their family. The story is written beautifully and in Rivers' trademark, characterization is deep and engaging. I really felt that I was a part of the story and found myself engrossed completely.

As I did with the first book, there were times when I got really annoyed with all the characters. Marta, Hildie and Carolyn were all reacting in ways that were harming their relationships. I just wanted to insert myself into the story and pretty much yell at them for not realizing how they were all hurting each other. It was heartbreaking to see history repeat itself due to mistakes the women had made. Hildie was doing to Dawn exactly what she had seen her mother do to Carolyn. This kept driving wedges between the mother/daughter relationships while the grandmother/granddaughter relationship thrived. I got frustrated with how everyone was acting and it was just really sad that some things didn't get resolved.

Without spoiling the story, I'll just say that the ending is not a completely happy one. While things do get wrapped up, they aren't wrapped up neatly. I was actually a bit surprised with what happened. It could be seen as a bit dramatic but realistic as well. I didn't expect a happy ending. There are several scenes in the book that are a bit hard to read. One of them involves child molestation. It is an uncomfortable scene but is not graphic. Another involves a condemning church. This one made me angry at the people in the church who thought they were all holy when really they were nothing but hypocrites. Other topics such as how Alcoholics Anonymous can be beneficial is also brought up as well.

Overall, I would call the two books in this series as an epic. It spans four generations of this family and shows how the relationship between mother and daughter was broken and repaired. The family is dysfunctional, to say the least, and things weren't always happy but under it all they loved each other. The story is also a really interesting look into American history. The first book looked at American history from an immigrant and first generation children's point of view. This book takes it from the viewpoint of children who have always grown up in American and get to experience the privileges of their citizenship to the fullest. They reaped the rewards that previous generations had worked hard to achieve. It's really hard to sum up this book in a small review so I would recommend that you just go out and read it for yourself. These books are some of Francine's best and I would recommend them for all mothers and daughters to read and then discuss. HIGHLY recommended.

HASH(0x8ead2d8c) von 5 Sternen Another Great Story by Francine Rivers 21. September 2010
Von MeganG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Our book club read Her Mother's Hope in May and I was anxious to read Her Daughter's Dream as soon as it came out. I finished it in record time because I just couldn't put it down--I finished it last night at midnight! I am convinced that everyone can find something to relate to in this story. Mother/daughter relationships, expectations from yourself and from others, dreams shattered/changed, God moving in ways you didn't know existed, and the list goes on.

I love how Rivers has a way of making her stories come to life. I felt like part of the family and just had to keep reading. We traveled through so many important moments in this book - not just important for the characters, but for our country and the world. It made it that much more interesting. I love and appreciate how things came back from the first novel and we were brought full circle. I laughed, cried, got excited, and felt anticipation througout the book. The character relationships caused me to think about how I treat others and how I look at myself and my dreams. I adore May Flower Dawn's character and everything she is in the book.

I highly recommend this book, and every Francine Rivers book that I have read thus far.

HASH(0x8ead35b8) von 5 Sternen warning there is sexual abuse in this book 31. Oktober 2011
Von Irnbru4u - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is hard for me, as I love Francine Rivers. All I ask is, is that there was a hint of what some of the subjects was going to be about. And this is mostly the reason why, I only give this book a 2 star.

WARNING - this review, has some outline, not in detail about child abuse.

I couldn't read past, the horrific account, IN A 6 yr old OWN WORDS of sexual abuse. First the start of the sexual abuse, then a more non descriptive part. But then reading about the rape. And then straight afterwards, about the horrific abuse of the father - lifting a fist to her, threatining her so much she soiled the bed. I know the latter it was implied he was sorry, but I 'hated' him at that point (the sexual abuse wasn't by the father). Although it was so mild to what went before. But it was just one thing after another. And I put the book down and HOWLED at how many children have to face that.

I have a vivid imagination, and I can't get past the images/description out of my mind.
The author has such a gift of painting word pictures, and has always managed to walk the fine line of not sugar coating the horrific world we live in, and then God's truths. And I am not even saying she crossed the line, the number of words she used regarding the whole thing, was quite short. But if there was a heads up that this was a book that contained child sexual abuse, I wouldn't have bought it. I wanted a 'nice' book to read before bed but instead was so disturbed. And the difference it made that it was in the child's own words was big!!

Many people will find it well done, but if you are very sensitive to the subject, or don't want horrible things in your head, then I am giving you fair warning. I just thought it would be like the first book, but it seemed to jump the daughter and go straight to the grand daughter. So I didn't really like it from that point either.

I won't be finishing the book either. Not because it isn't well written, it is but because of the above comments.

HASH(0x8ead2fcc) von 5 Sternen Her Daughter's Dream: A Message of Hope 31. Dezember 2010
Von shorti98 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Books can be medicine for the soul. Her Daughter's Dream is certainly just what the doctor ordered. This novel is the second and final book in the Marta's Legacy series, and picks up where Her Mother's Hope left off. We are introduced to Carolyn, Hildie's daughter, and May Flower Dawn, Carolyn's daughter as the saga continues. As the story opens, Marta has just moved in with Hildie and her family to help care for them while Hildie recovers from her bout with tuberculosis. Because she is contagious, the children must remain ostracized from Hildie, and Carolyn, in particular, takes this very hard. She seeks out her grandmother, Marta, for comfort and nurturing. Hildie sees how close her daughter is becoming with her mother and this jealousy further fuels the bitterness simmering in her heart toward her mother, Marta.
As Carolyn grows older, she grows further and further apart from her mother, Hildie, and once she leaves home, begins living a life of promiscuity in the counterculture of San Francisco. Upon a chance encounter with a Christian woman, Carolyn is encouraged to return home after being estranged from her family for the last couple of years. She decides to do so, and upon returning, discovers she is pregnant. Hildie now is in her mother's shoes, and cares for Carolyn's daughter, May Flower Dawn, and the two become closely attached. Like her mother before her, Carolyn resents Hildie for stepping in her place, but does not know how to communicate her feelings to Hildie. Thus the dysfunctional cycle between mother and daughter continues. Resolution seems out of reach until dire circumstances force these woman to band together for the greater good of the next generation, making "her" appearance toward the end of the story.

Very rarely does a work of fiction come along and tackle the unspeakable, emotionally-charged controversies of family dynamics. Because Rivers herself can identify with such issues, her writing is accentuated by her personal experiences, making it all the more attractive and believable. As she paints the backdrop of each plot and sub-plot in vivid, historical detail, the characters and scenery come alive. As we read, it is almost as if we are standing there amongst the throng, readily identifying with the events taking place because they are so momentous to our society and culture. Finally, Rivers calls us to action. She compels us to let go of any pain and anger that may exist in our own lives toward family members and the like. Through the restoration of the four women in this story, we learn that unconditional love can bridge the widest of chasms and that even the most estranged of relationships can be salvaged in the wake of God's mercy and grace.
