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.

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!

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.

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.
