At first, I wasn't sure if I would really enjoy this book. It opens with tensions between Kathleen and her daughter Joelle. As Kathleen begins to tell her daughter about her childhood, they then begin to discover the truth about Kathleen's mother's and grandmother's lives. It is as if each generation has different thread that weave together to make a tapestry by the end of the book. It was a little hard to get into at first, but by the end I really enjoyed the story.
This is an excellent Christian fiction. Very well written. It is an adult read, or for older teens. Nothing too graphic but the harsh realities of life. The effects of sin passed from one generation to the next are portrayed and yet the healing of The Lord is clear too.
This is an amazing book! Lynn Austin never lets me down as my favorite author, but this is my favorite.
I did enjoy reading this book, however, It was not one of those you can't put down type of books. I would still recommend this book
This is one of my favorite Lynn Austin books. It holds your attention from Chapter one and on. This author is excellent when it comes to capturing characters in a true-to-life way. Highly recommend this book.
I really liked this book. The way the author unraveled the mysteries was great!
Lynn Austin is a great author! all of her books are amazing
This is one of the best books I have ever read!!!! If u like books that take u into the past lives of the women who came before the main charactor u will love this book. You get the grandmother's story, the mother's story and the daughter's story. Excellent read!!
Wonderful story!! A healing relationship between mother and daughter, on so many levels. The mom understands her mom better after she learns the history of the ladies in her past. I'm not fond of touchy feely books, but this was wonderful, the plot, the characters, the history... everything, I recommend!
About forgiveness and reconcillation in a family after 35 years. As always Lynn Austin has written another great book.
This is a great book that portrays forgiveness, healing and grace. It's one of my favorite books. Definitely recommend it!!
I love how Austin pulled her characters together. Her thread through the years doesnt miss a beat. A wonderful example of how the choices of one generation impact subsequent generations. The saying Let it begin with me comes to mind as these three generations of women share a common thread. I truly enjoyed her style, her story and how redemption and forgiveness overcome the incredible obstacles faced by this family. Highly recommended.
Excellent!! One of the best books I've read in awhile. Makes one examine one's own life and reactions to life's events.
Great read. The first book I have read by her and I will be reading more.
Another great book by Lynn Austin!! Filled will real life descriptions of family secrets, lies and communication. You will see yourself or family members everywhere in this book!
Another winner for Lynn Austin!
I really enjoyed this book,it was hard for me to put down.I like these types of books. Thank you so much
This is an excellent book showing how sin can invade & ruin a family for generations unless it is brought out into the open & repented of or dealt with. The main character is Kathleen who has a daughter she cannot connect with on an emotional level. When the daughter gets into some trouble, the counselor suggests that Kathleen share with her daughter some of the stories of her own childhood. Very reluctantly, Kathleen does this as she & her daughter take a road trip back to where Kathleen grew up. As Kathleen's past, then her mother's past & then her grandmother's past come to light, Kathleen finally realizes why she has cut herself off emotionally from her family & begins to reach out to her daughter. In response, her daughter has a new respect for her mother.
This is a good book, a bit of a page turner; It is rather long but I did get drawn in and wanted to keep reading. It is about multi generations of women. I enjoyed the book.
