Two women, one of the nineties the other a young pioneer on the Oregon Trail, are joined through a tattered journal as they contend with God, husbands, and themselves, until they find their true love.

I really enjoyed this book! Two stories in one. Sierra and Mary Kathryn had a lot in common even though they were seperated by many years, but they were related! They both were very forgiving, much more than I am, especially Sierra taking her husband back after all the terrible things he did to her, adultery being the worst. She did have her faults and did contribute to the break-up, but I was upset when she took him back. I have read other books by this author and I'm looking forward to reading The Mark of the Lion Series. ( )

Excellent book. Read it twice now. I love the way Francine Rivers takes the bible and makes a fictional book out of its truths into our 21st century world. But I have to agree that her book Redeeming Love is still my favorite. ( )

A fabulous spiritual read. I've never been disappointed in any books by Francine Rivers.

After her marriage dissolves, Sierra finds solace in the diaries of her ancestor, Mary. The scarlet thread binds the two, though they never met.

A very good book that was hard to put down. A strong, powerful ending that won't let you down. ( )

January 2010 - Review by Alina (daughter of Tim & Cheryl Walker): All of Francine Rivers' books are excellent. They are recommended for older teen to adult. This and Redeeming Love are two of my favorite books by Francine Rivers. Highly recommended. ( )
