Reviews of Ribbon of Years …

“Robin Lee Hatcher’s heart shines through in Ribbon of Years. It reminded me of God’s profound faithfulness, and the impact one life can have on so many others.”
- Terri Blackstock

“Nothing thrills my reader’s heart more than a novel filled with grace! Ribbon of Years gently unfurls like satin, rolling through the second half of the twentieth century, capturing the nuances of each decade through the eyes of one remarkable woman. I finished her story with my eyes filled with tears and my heart filled with one prayer: ‘Lord, let me be like Miriam, overflowing with grace!’”

    A sweet story about a life well lived.

    A novel like Ribbon of Years comes along once in a lifetime. In fact, the novel itself is the recounting of one woman¿s lifetime, told through the stories of her friends to a visitor at an auction of the woman¿s home. The story is of a woman named Miriam. It begins in 1936 with her life as a teenager in River Bluff. Miriam longs to get out of the crushing monotony of her small-town life and find some fast-paced adventure. As the story unfolds, however, circumstances keep Miriam from leaving and it seems like she will forever be stuck in a dead-end town with a nothing life. One disaster after another crashes over Miriam, but through it all she begins to understand God¿s hand in her life and to see that her value lies not in what she can become, but rather in how she lives her life. Though she continues to live a quiet, unassuming life, Miriam¿s gentle faith touches the lives of many. She perseveres through the trials and walks out the difficulties in her daily life in the strength of the Lord. Ribbon of Years is an impressive novel with a storyline that spans seven decades. The historical references throughout the book help to keep the reader focused not only on the life, but also the times, that happen during these years. I highly recommend this novel by this prolific writer, and look forward to exploring Robin Lee Hatcher's many other works.

    A sad but encouraging story

    I have never read anything by Robin Lee Hatcher before, but this book was a pleasant surprise. I love stories told in flashbacks, and this one was great. Hatcher creates characters who go through enormous heartache and turmoil, yet they still rely on God for strength. It is a good encouragement to all people. This is definitely a book that I will recommend to friends.
