I have one word that sums up my overall feelings about this book. It was WONDERFUL! I really enjoyed the first book, but loved this one even more! I was so inspired as I read about how the Lord pulled each of these ladies through the hard times and I cried more than once while reading this book. Not because it was sad (though I was) but because I really cared about the characters. And honestly, even the sad feelings were a healing, rejoicing kind of sad because of the beauty that God brought forth from the ashes in their lives. The title of this book couldn't have been more perfect. At first I thought the daughter who had the dream was Carolyn, but it ended up being Dawn. And what a powerful story she had. I loved how realistically her struggles with Jason were portrayed. I loved how I lived in her head and in her skin for so long. I literally escaped into her world. This author is so incredibly gifted. She does a fantastic job of bringing characters to life, and having her readers join their journeys and struggles in every life-transforming story she writes. This is the kind of fiction I aspire to write myself. Fiction that comes alive, that brings healing, that deals with real-life, painful issues, and that shows the heart of God and the redemption of Christ. What a beautiful story! I dare say that this book ranks at the top of my favorites list for this year. I've read many great books so far in 2010, but this one stirred my heart, challenged my thinking, and encouraged my spirit the most. Wonderful, wonderful book!

Rivers is one special writer that seems to know what the world needs to read. This is another wonderful, special book about mother, daughter relationships spanning four generations. This one covers the 1950's up until today with a lot of surprises in its conclusion. This, along with her others, is full of historical detail, is so moving and heartfelt that the family saga comes alive and we can all relate. I love all of Francine River's books!

Francine Rivers 2010 Fiction/General Tyndale Reviewed by Cindy Loven Her Daughter's Dream, takes up right where Her Mother's Hope left off. Francine Rivers, has such a wonderful gift of telling a story, that it will stand alone without reading the first book, but it does help to know the story of the first book. Marta, now known as Oma has come to the realization that she should have done some things in her life different, perhaps a bit of kindness with Hildemara, instead of the harshness she had shown her all her life, would have improved the relationship between them. However what greatly grieves Marta is seeing the same pattern with her granddaughter Carolyn and her great granddaughter May Flower Dawn. The family grows up, and grieves as a grandson goes off to fight in the Vietnam War, never to return. Greater grief takes places when the only surviving child of Hildemara and Trip, disappears into the crazed drug scene of the sixties. They near grieve themselves to death, only to find that when she does come home, there are things they just don't seem able to move past. Fast forward several years and Carolyn has grown into a wonderful responsible single mother, who falls in love with an old high school friend, after much pursuing on his part, and a new family is born. A new family with the same struggles, as the old family had, the grandmother and daughters not bonding with their mothers. A story of struggles, hurts and dashed hopes. This book will keep you reading from front to back. Be prepared to have your tissues, as your heart will tear and break with the family as they loose loved ones, laugh along as they celebrate victories and milestones. I loved this new Francine Rivers books and appreciate the chance to review it. 438 pages $24.99 Hardcover 5 stars! Thanks to Tyndale publishing for providing this book for review.

I totally enjoyed reading the second book in this series by Francine Rivers. It was very true to life and times in the 1960-1980's. The author taught how her family over came many dysfunctions and still found peace in our Lord. I had to carry tissues with me. You will too. I hate to put it in archive.

¿Love one another, Jesus said. Sometimes it took a lifetime to learn how. Sometimes it took hitting rock bottom to make someone reach up and grasp hold and be lifted from the mire to stand on a firm foundation.¿ In the conclusion of Francine Rivers Marta¿s Legacy Series we continue to learn about Oma, Hildemara Rose her daughter Carolyn and daughter May Flower Rose. Rivers continues to weave a story that links you to the characters but also teaches you lessons about your everyday life. Every family has the traits they pass from each generation to the next, sometimes unknowingly and sometimes we choose to pretend to not see what is happening. Rivers tackles these things head on, showing that through generations families can remain disconnected but it does not have to stay that way. Relying on Jesus, we need to let go of our pride and conquer those things head on. The things that tear a family a part do not need to be passed down but repaired, with Jesus there is no reason to let the hurts and pains of one generation to continue on to the next. Francine Rivers has created a story of redemption and forgiveness we can all learn from. This book will not only captivate your attention but encourage you to open the line of communication with your entire family.

Engrossing four-generation story Her Daughter's Dream is the continuation of a four-generation story that began in Her Mother's Hope. Although the books can stand alone, it is much more fascinating to read them both in order. The books together show how too often, personality traits and ways of relating to our mothers and our daughters are shaped by events in the lives of those who came before us and raised us. When we know what caused them to behave the way they did, it deepens our understanding and compassion - and breaks down barriers that stand in the way of healthy relationships, healthy communication. We are able to express the love we so deeply feel that often is held back by difficulties. The story of Swiss girl Marta and the challenges in her life is begun in the first book along with the story of her daughter, Hildemara. The family eventually settled in California. Her Daughter's Dream continues the tale with Hildemara's daughter, Carolyn and Carolyn's daughter, May Flower Dawn during the years after World War II, during the Vietnam War and afterward. The story of these women and their families is told in detail through these different time periods of history, each being brought to life vividly. I was very drawn into the story and wish there was more!

Dramatic conclusion to Marta's Legacy This novel wraps up the second half of Marta's Legacy. I didn't think it was possible but I liked this part of the story even more than the first. The author has such an extraordinary talent that I'm blown away with every book I read of hers. This is no exception. Learning about Carolyn and May Flower Dawn had me glued to the pages. There were joys, sorrows, heartbreak and redemption. Such a great book!

I love everything Francine writes, but this one really hit home for me. How did she know my family this well when we've never met??? I couldn't put down either book, and was living many of the scenes while reading them... Father died of cancer, brother died, conflicts with mother, alienation from siblings, and on it goes. We haven't found the healing yet, though.
