Overview

Este es el primero de dos libros en una saga que explora las complicadas relaciones entre madres e hijas a través de cuatro generaciones. A finales del siglo XIX, la fogosa Marta deja Suiza decidida a encontrar la vida bajo sus propios términos. Su educador viaje la lleva a través de Europa y Canadá, y finalmente la carga con la compañía de hijos y un esposo en el valle central de California. Las experiencias de Marta la convencen de que sólo los fuertes sobreviven —y ella decide criar hijos fuertes. Hildie, la hija mayor de Marta, tiene el servicio a otros en su corazón, y la inflexible crianza de Marta deja a Hildie hambrienta por el amor de su madre. El llamado de Hildie para ser enfermera le da independencia, además del respeto de su madre. En medio del drama de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Hildie se enamora y empieza su propia familia. Ella quiere que su hija nunca dude de su amor —pero los retos de la vida conspiran en contra de su promesa. Esta saga trata sobre cómo romper los ciclos generacionales dañinos, encaminarse a la reconciliación y restaurar las relaciones más importantes de la vida.

This is the first in a two-book saga that explores the complicated relationships between mothers and daughters over four generations. Near the turn of the 20th century, fiery Marta leaves Switzerland determined to find life on her own terms. Her formative journey takes her through Europe, Canada, and finally lands her with children and husband in tow in the central valley of California. Marta’s experiences convince her that only the strong survive—and she determines to raise strong children. Hildie, Marta’s oldest daughter, has a heart to serve others, and Marta’s hardnosed parenting leaves Hildie hungry for the love of her mother. Hildie’s calling as a nurse gives her independence, if not the respect of her mother. Each woman is forced to confront her faulty, but well-meaning desire to help her daughter find her God-given place in the world. This saga is about breaking hurtful generational cycles and moving toward reconciling and restoring life’s most important relationships.

About the Author

From 1976 to 1985, Francine Rivers had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were awarded or nominated for numerous awards and prizes. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, mother of three, and an established romance novelist. Shortly after becoming a born-again Christian in 1986, Francine wrote Redeeming Love as her statement of faith. This retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea set during the time of the California Gold Rush is now considered by many to be a classic work of Christian fiction. Redeeming Love continues to be one of the Christian Booksellers Association’s top-selling titles, and it has held a spot on the Christian bestsellers list for nearly a decade.

Since Redeeming Love, Francine has published numerous novels with Christian themes--all bestsellers--and she has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her Christian novels have also been awarded or nominated for numerous awards, including the Christy Award and the ECPA Gold Medallion. Francine’s novels have been translated into over twenty different languages, and she enjoys bestseller status in many foreign countries including Germany, The Netherlands, and South Africa.

Francine and her husband, Rick, live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their four grandchildren. She uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.
