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)
This book weaves a modern story, and a story written along the Oregon Trail many years before. Both women share many of the same life struggles and looking back they see how God worked in their lives.
