I love this band. I listen to them daily. Even though we are looking at another camera, we all look like we're alert for it being a fan signing and it's 11:30 p.m. on a Friday.

Her Daughter's Dream Review

"Marta's Legacy: Her Daughter's Dream" is by Francine Rivers, a poignant and stunning Christian author with an amazing salvation story. Readers relate to Hildemara, Caroline and May Flower Dawn and how they interacted and responded to various historical events and the broken/injured relationships brought on by the hardships suffered by each of them, and of generational abuse and cycles of abuse. Francine Rivers makes them a real family, a real people she masterfully brings to life. The brilliant Francine Rivers immortalized herself with "The Mark of the Lion" series, her "Lineage of Grace" novellas and "Redeeming Love" and this book enhances her collection of writings all the more. She wrote them based on her own family and wove faith in God and Christ into every page. A touching aspect is that Marta's, the matriarch of sorts, daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter finally get to read Marta's letters to Rose, whose family has enjoyed them, not knowing that if her family had been able to read them, they would have been spared a lot of pain. This never even occurred to Marta, and why would it have? And how Marta desperately tries to keep Hildemara strong but in the end she makes Hildemara distant. But what's so sad is that Marta doesn't want Hildemara to be raped like her sister was and be seen as "weak," but in the end, it is her granddaughter she should have feared for. This should be read by anyone who feels distant from any member of their family, especially their mother and/or grandmother.

Praying you have faith, hope, and love always,
