From Library Journal
With a loving and successful husband, two beautiful children, and a new house in her hometown, Sierra Madrid leads a happy life. Then her husband, Alex, announces that he has taken a job in Los Angeles and that the family will soon move, and Sierra's dream is shattered. Once in the fast lane of big-city life, Alex becomes more aloof and the family begins the slow process of disintegration. Sierra's only consolation in her despair is one of her ancestor's journals. Sierra's own journey through pain toward reconciliation and redemption is mirrored in the journal entries she reads and rereads. Unfortunately, the journal entries are often intrusive and add little to the overall impact of the story. In addition, incredible and unnecessary plot elements at the story's end mar an otherwise strong romance. Purchase only where demand is warranted for former mainstream romance-writer Rivers's books.

About the Author
Francine Rivers began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were highly acclaimed by readers and reviewers. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, a mother of three, and an established romance novelist.
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 grandchildren.

The Scarlet Thread is written about women from different times periods. Although occurring during different centuries, Rivers has woven these two stories not by time but by these women’s struggles.
Sierra Madrid seems to have it all: a handsome husband, two children, a house which she loves. But she feels uprooted when her husband, Alex, takes a new job and they have to move. Suddenly she feels out of place, not to mention she’s holding a grudge with the life style change. Jump back to another century, Mary McMurray doesn’t have it all: her mother has died and her family has fallen apart. Several years later, the man she has married has decided to move out West. As Rivers writes of their hardships, trials, tears, I found myself involved in their stories, questioning why Sierra didn’t just swallow being uprooted and make the best of things. But as life, our Heavenly Father can use those tragedies, trials, disappointments to bring us closer to Him.
To learn how Francine Rivers brings it all together you'll just have to read the book. (M. Struse)
