I know its a book series that spans maybe 70-80 years
Book 1 is starts in Switzerland i think, its a girl who in her teens and she is a maid in berne (again i think) and then at some point a war breaks out (WWI i think again) then i believe at some point she moves to the US.
I believe now im in book 2
Now they are at a farm and the lady runs it and she runs this like super rigorous summer camp for boys, maybe the 30s now,
Book 3 maybe
The 3rd generation appears and maybe wwii. the husband of gen 2 is a medic in the army, and i think the lady gets tuberculosis, i think theyre now on the west coast.

I know that its really sporadic. The parts i described might be part of the same books. I read them about 6 or 7 years ago and i know i found them again maybe 3 years ago but i forget what their names are. I think it might be a christian author but dont quote me on that. the books are kinda lengthy maybe 400 or so pages.

It sounds like "A Mother's Hope" and "Her Daughter's Dream" by Francine Rivers
