I'm always extra-critical of Christian writing since so much of it in the past was...well, awful. The influence of God in each of the lives chronicled in this story is inspiring and a vital part of this family. As always, Ms. Rivers' writing is so good it fades into the background until the reader is conscious only of the unfolding story without having to notice the grammatical mistakes, typos, awkward sentence structure and uneven character development of many published writers. I read the first book in a single day and couldn't wait to find this one, the second in the series. I highly recommend both.
"Wait," my mother said, "just give this a chance . . ."
Bored with my winter vacation, I finally cracked open the first book two days after receiving the set. Seventeen hours later, I set down the last book, sated. I'd gone on a reading binge. That was not what happened with this two part series.
Like I said in my previous review, no one can deny what a brilliant writer Francine Rivers is. The woman is amazing with plot lines, and an interesting read. She writes simplistically, but somehow it's sophisticated. She manages to get difficult plot points across without confusing the reader. Most of all, she is a compelling author, possibly one of the best Christian writers of all time. Perhaps she's one of the best writers that I've ever read. Her Mark of the Lion Series was supreme. This short series was not.
In the second part, Francine Rivers focuses on the daughter and granddaughter of Marta. Once again, Rivers emphasizes the dissidence between the characters, the lack of respect that the younger has for the elder. Once again, Francine Rivers enjoys beating the reader into a bloody pulp, trying to make a point.
I, the readerly, get it! Color me flabbergasted, Rivers makes the point over and over again that without communication and trust in God, good relationships cannot exist. Got it! Rivers is great, but the over-proselytizing and emphasis on communication skills was annoying.
However, I still needed to complete the last book, which speaks to Rivers as a writer. Although, not her best, still the book is better than much of the reading material that I consume on a daily basis. Rivers is a great writer with fantastic ideas and amazing appeal. She is a quality writer. Although this is not HER best, she is still one of the best writers out there today, Christian or not.
Her Daughter's Dream is a very satisfying sequel to Her Mother's Hope. It is a book you will want to read again and again!
