Overview

What Would You Do If a Secret Was Causing Your Family to Crumble?

Is there a secret terrible enough that it should never be revealed, not even if it was tearing a family apart? For more than five decades Emma Bauer has kept one--carefully guarding it with all her strength, and for more than five decades that choice has haunted her life and also the lives of her daughters and granddaughter. Is it too late for wrongs to be righted? Does Emma even have the strength to let the healing power of truth work in her family?

The story of four generations of women and the powerful effects that their choices have had on their lives is at the heart of Eve's Daughters, an epic novel from author Lynn Austin. Grand in scope but tender and personal at the same time, it will please you as a fan of contemporary or historical fiction.

Exploring times from World War I to the 980s, Eve's Daughters is an insightful look at mothers, daughters, sisters, and families that allows you to see a little bit of yourself through the characters' triumphs, struggles, and hard-tested faith.

Yearning for love, dignity, and freedom, the four generations of women must come to terms with the choices they have made. Healing comes when the past is forgiven but only when they embrace God's forgiveness can they shatter the cycle that has ruled their lives over the decades.

    In Lynn Austin's, Eve's Daughters, you become so enchanted and consumed by their life stories that you don't want the novel to end.  The character development is amazing and though each woman is her own person, with varied personalities I loved each of them.  Their blessings. dreams, resilience, strengths and struggles are so relatable that Ms. Austin gives us a vision into the life of a woman, for we are all Eve's daughters.

    This is a very well written Christian novel, one that their beliefs are a part of their story but not unrealistic and fluffy by any means.  In my opinion, everyone would love this story regardless of their faith or lack their of.

    This book is a treasure, great historical fiction and a story that I will always remember.

    This is one of the best books I have read in an extremely long time. I love Lynn Austin, and this is my favorite by her! I became so emotionally attached to the book that I did not want to put it down. A definite must-read.

    Good Read

    I really enjoyed how the author entwined several generations. Found the characters interesting. I rated only four stars because of the need for better editing.

    One of my favorites!

    This was the first Lynn Austin book I read. I have since read many others of hers and very much enjoyed them all, but Eve's Daughters is still my favorite.

    I Also Recommend:

    The headline adequately describes the content of the book. I didn't know how to classify the title of the book, at first but later realized what it stood for. The headline caught my interest as soon as I was introduced to the book.

    Eve's Daughters by Lynn Austin is one of the best books that I have ever read! I don't have much time to read books and often times I fall asleep while trying to read, howevever this book definitely peaked my interest in starting to read all over again. Although, at first, it took me some time to get accustom to the writing style I finally caught on to who was telling what story in the events that occurred.

    I have never read a book that caused so many emotions in me and all from one book. I got angry, I laughed, I cried, and I felt things that I couldn't believe I could feel just from reading a book. I also felt compassion and lack of compassion at times. I imagined what was, what could have been and the sense of romance or lack thereof but whatever the emotion and feeling I was left with the lingering thoughts of what occurred in each persons life and I began to reflect on my own life and my response to my own experiences and situations. I've read until the wee hours of the morning, despite the fact that I had to go to work the next day. I even woke up in the middle of the night at times, not feeling very sleepy only to find myself picking up this book, yet once again.

    This book was suggested through a book club started at my church and I have already recommended this book to several of my friends and to my sister who also read, enjoyed and felt a lot of the same emotions I did when reading Eve's Daughters. I strongly recommend this book to everyone! This book keeps one's interest, entices one to continue reading and keeps the suspense going until the very end. There is also a spiritual aspect that again caused me to reflect on life.

    Happy Reading to all who make the decision to read this book.

    EXTREMELY EXCELLENT!!!

    For me Lynn is a super master story teller! Her characters are SO real and you feel like you know them from the start -- authors who can do THAT are the best. ALL of her books are great but the generational novels are my favorite. After you read this -- be sure to read "All She Ever Wanted". OK Lynn -- write faster!!

    An ablsolute pleasure to read!

    I read this book some time ago upon the recommendation of my daughter (who is an avid christian fiction reader). I had asked her to recommend a good book but not the cheesy, predictable type stories often found in christian fiction. She recommended this one as one of her most favorite books and she was right on the mark. The book has been shared with other family and friends (some reading it multiple times) because it simply touches your soul. Lynn's writing captures and conveys the setting and emotion of the story in such a personal way that one really does experience the book. One of my favorite things about her writing is her wit and humor woven throughout the story. You will smile often, laugh, and cry. It is truly an book to experience.

    SUPER GREAT !!

    I agree with all the other reviewers -- Lynn is an excellent writer. Christian fiction used to be very watered down AND sappy romantic stuff -- real NOVEL readers want something with substance. This is my first Austin book -- now I will look for all the others!

    This is the book I judge all other books by

    This is by far my favorite book! I have read it 4 times about once a year and loved it every time. Lynn Austin is such a gifted writer! Between my mother and myself we have given or suggested this book to about 15 women and all of them have loved it and given it to thier friends and mothers. I just can not say enough about this great book. YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK. No matter what your age, religion, lifestyle you will love this book.

    Eve's Daughters... It touched my heart.

    After reading Eve's Daughters- which I couldn't put down unit the final page was turned- I got my hands on every novel of hers¿ that I could. I must say that I am not Christian, and I found this book by accident, but I could not believe how I got into this book. I say, get your hands on this book if you can, it is one read that you will never forget or regret reading.

    AMAZING!!!!!!

    This has been the single most greatest christian book i've ever read in my life! I've read a lot of the sugary sweet stuff thats popular with christian authors, but this book is nothing like that. It shows the way life really is, and the amazing things God can do to change our lives. It's the first time i ever heard of an affair in a christain book too ;) lol You HAVE TO READ IT!!!!

    Not candy-coated fiction

    I have never read anything before written by Lynn Austin, but this book was wonderful. From the moment I began the prologue, I knew I would like this book. All four women chronicled in the chapters face similar things that every woman encounters, but the love and grace of God is always present. Austin does not candy-coat life either, like so many Christian writers of today. Her characters live realistic lives with ups and downs, laughter and tragedy, just like we all do. I was pleased to see that. I loved these characters, and I did not want the book to end. I look forward to reading more novels by Lynn Austin.
