A modern young woman in a struggling marriage discovers her ancestor's journal, an Oregon Trail pioneer in the 18th century. Her ancestor believes in God, and through reading about her experiences, Sierra starts to believe in God as well, which begins to change her life.
An ironic part is that Sierra is forced to move to Los Angeles, just like her ancestor Mary Katherine moved to California as well. A wonderful novel by my favorite novelist, Francine Rivers, The Scarlet Thread brought tears to my eyes. It's an enjoyable novel full of God's truth, a reminder of promises, and the restoration of broken relationships - to each other, to God, and to ourselves.
