Waiting on Wednesday: Her Mother's Hope by Francine Rivers

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Her Mother's Hope by Francine Rivers set to release March, 2010.

(I REALLY can't wait for this one to come out!!!!)

About the book:

The first in an epic two-book saga by beloved author Francine Rivers, this sweeping story explores the complicated relationships between mothers and daughters over several generations. Near the turn of the 20th century, fiery Marta leaves Switzerland determined to find life on her own terms. Her journey takes her through Europe and finally lands her with children and husband in tow in the central valley of California. Marta’s experiences convince her that only the strong survive. Hildie, Marta’s oldest daughter, has a heart to serve others, and her calling as a nurse gives her independence, if not the respect of her mother. Amid the drama of WWII, Hildie marries and begins a family of her own. She wants her daughter never to doubt her love—but the challenges of life conspire against her vow. Each woman is forced to confront her faulty but well-meaning desire to help her daughter find her God-given place in the world.


  1. The only book I've ever read by Francine was Redeeming Love but it was awesome! This looks good too! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Renee...

    You definitely need to read the Mark of the Lion series next then! Takes a few chapters before you get sucked in on the first one, but they are all just as wonderful as Redeeming Love. :o)

  3. Oh, I love Francine Rivers! I didn't know she had a new book coming out. Onto the TBR list it goes.

  4. Don't you love when a favorite author has a new book? Hope you enjoy it!


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
