The person under me who put down a 6 doesn't know what he's talking about! I'm not usually this foward...okay, I'm NEVER this foward, but I have to say my part. It is very true, this book isn't like her other works; she is dealing with the here and now, not ancient times. This book is so very true, and it's one of my favorites by her. I am not one for sappy love stories; they make me sick, especially when the woman does whatever the man says. In this book you see not a sappy woman but a woman torn; she loves the man she married, but is embittered by his decisions without her. And when he betrays her, I personally felt ready to kill him. I URGE you to read this book! This book is one in a million for all ages! I believe that this book ranks up there with her Mark of the Lion series. It's truly a masterpiece.

"The Scarlet Thread" is a must read for anyone feeling isolated or alone in their struggles. The real life issues that the characters experience shed light on how we all are in this journey together.

From traveling across country not knowing if you'll live or die to the pain of abandonment or divorce, this book offers the reader hope and assurance that there is someone who understands your fears and is always with you -- whether to guide, to listen or to carry you through.

Francine Rivers offers two stories in one and touches on everyone's desire to find purpose and meaning in life. Read this book, you'll be glad you did.

This book was hard to put down. I wanted to get to the end but wanted everything in the middle. It is a story of priorities turned around for the good of the marriage. If only things were done like this in real life. We could prevent alot of divorces. With God all things are possible.

The romance of pioneer spirits that many of us enjoy reading about make this book, not only very relevant and current but a wonderful positive message also.
We see the bridge of generations connected, through the quilt, of those that have left far greater legacies than money ever will. A sense of strength in difficulty, values that never change.

This is the first work I read of Francine Rivers and have since read her new book, Atonement Child and provided copies for my two daughters, 17 and 20. This is the type of book that we can each read and find something relevant to our world of 1997, revisit the romance of the early 1900's and bridge culture, social, economic and spiritual diversity for all.

I read this book for the first time a few years ago, and need to come back to it every now and them to reread it. I have to say that in all the years since I read it, I've never quite managed to forgive Alex for making their family move. However, after that first decision was made, all of the characters had bad decisions that they made that they could have reconsidered. I think I liked it because it had real problems, and was realistic; no villains, no perfect saints, just ordinary human beings trying (and sometimes failing miserably) to get along and care about each other. It was also moving to see how truly aiming to live a better life (as Sierra did) could truly change circumstances even when they had gone so far awry. I also realized again that although others may make bad decisions, we are only responsible for our own, but we are thoroughly responsible for those. Someone we love may hurt us greatly, but we can still choose our reaction to them. I would definitely recommend this book.

This was one of the first Christian fiction works I've read and it really made me think in a way that books don't usually cause. I couldn't forget about it. I thought it was real. I was so drawn into Sierra (who was so stupid, but came around). And I could kind of understand Alex (but that does not excuse him). As Christians we are taught to forgive, but when it comes down to it, it's a tough thing to do. Maybe I liked this because it made me question how I would handle myself in this situation. But I loved it and have recommended it to many friends!

The Scarlet Thread was enthralling from start to finish. Ms. Rivers has captured the heart of relationships in America. I could see myself in almost every page. She brings together both the problems and the answers in such a way, that you see not only where you went wrong, but also how to change direction and correct your mistakes. This was the first book written by Francine Rivers that I have ever read....I can't wait for more. Thank you Ms. Rivers for an enlightening and entertaining piece of art.

Format: Paperback
Their journeys intertwine. Sierra travels a freeway to LA, Mary Kathryn a trail to Oregon. The trunk belonged to Mary Kathryn McMurray. Inside lay a journal and a wedding quilt. Sierra's mother said, "One day it will come to you like a star bursting in the heavens. And what a day that will be!" She studied the quilt, her fingers tracing the scarlet thread that held all the pieces together--and understood. Both women discover that God loves them very much and he is watching over them. On both their journeys they face hardships and losses. They discover that God will never leave them nor forsake them. God allowed her to go through all those things so that she would come to him. Once she did, she saw the wonder of all of it.
