I really enjoyed reading this book. I had a hard time putting it down. I was very glad that Hildie and Carolyn finally resolved their differences in the end, although it was a very sad ending and quite unexpected. It was sad that Marta was never able to resolve the conflict between her and her

daughter before she died. Another excellent book by Francine Rivers!

“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.

Well, this was certainly better than the first book, but I found the mother-daughter relationships irritating at times. While all the men in the women's lives were sweeties, May Flower Dawn was the only female character I really liked although Marta did grow on me as she grew older and wiser. I

found the others self-centred and cold towards their daughters, and at times I wanted to shake them. However, this book did bring me to tears at times at the suffering, hurt and finally forgiveness that the women shared.
