Her Daughter's Dream by Francine Rivers

Her Daughter's Dream by Francine Rivers is the moving conclusion to the two-part series Marta's Legacy. The story picks up where it left off in Her Mother's Hope. When tuburculosis sends Hildemara Rose to the hospital for several months, her daughter Carolyn doesn't understand why her mom isn't around anymore. She develops a close relationship with her Oma Marta - which separates her from her mom even more. And so the story continues, with misunderstandings, lack of communication, destructive patterns, and family tragedy. When tragedy strikes, Carolyn disappears only to come home years later - pregnant, unmarried, homeless, and an alcoholic. Her daughter May Flower Dawn grows up torn between her mother and grandmother. Eventually she desires to be the bridge between the two and prays that God will break down the walls in her family.

I devoured this book in two days. I couldn't get enough! While I was anxious to find out what happened with Hildemara Rose, I couldn't bear the thought that more terrible things would happen to her and her family! I wanted to literally shake them at times and yell at them to talk to each other! At times, it was even difficult to read - because it was so realistic. I was torn between needing to know what happened and wanting to set it aside because it was too hard. Full of emotion, I laughed and cried and fumed and stewed and hoped they would all be okay.

Please, please read this series. I recognized some of these unhealthy patterns in my own relationships and am praying that the Lord will keep my eyes opened to them.
