From the New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love and The Masterpiece comes the powerful story of two women, centuries apart, who are joined through a tattered journal as they contend with God, husbands, and even themselves.
Sierra Madrid’s life has just been turned upside down when she discovers the handcrafted quilt and journal of her ancestor Mary Kathryn McMurray, a young woman who was uprooted from her home only to endure harsh conditions on the Oregon Trail.
Though the women are separated by time and circumstance, Sierra discovers that many of the issues they face are remarkably similar . . . and uncovering Mary Kathryn’s story may help her write the next chapter of hers.
“Rivers tells a powerful story of marital love tested in a crucible. Your hankie will not be dry, nor your heart unchallenged, as the characters learn the lessons of surrender to God’s sovereignty and unconditional love.”
Also available in The Francine Rivers Historical Collection (e-book only).

The book was good. It became a real page turner. It had lots of ups and downs. I would have liked to see an epilogue.
The Scarlet Thread
It was a wonderful book. An eye opening experience. One that. Alas for self examination. I had some difficulty going back and forth but I was able to get through it.
Thanks for the wonderful read
Don't wanna put down
In today's society of self centeredness and lack of values it's nice to see a story with real life situations and Christian based outcomes.
