Sierra Madrid. Woman of the nineties. Bold. Determined. Her life was about to be turned upside down.
Mary Kathryn mcMurray. Young pioneer on the Oregon Trail. She was filled with anger at being uprooted from her home.
Two women, centuries apart, are joined through a tattered journal as they contend with God, husbands--even themselves--until they fall into the arms of the One who loves them undonditionally.
I've never seen any book written quite like this one. Francine braids two stories into one. While Sierra is struggling with changes in her life, she reads about and finds comfort in an ancestors diary - Mary Kathryn. Uniquely written with a powerful message in the end.
I have never been disappointed in a Francine Rivers book! Read it, read it, read it!
This was a great book and brought together 2 ladies from different eras. A journal helps a women with her marriage problems and she comes to know God thought her struggles.
A women of the nineties and a young pioneer on the Oregan Trail share a remarkable journey.
