Review of "Her Mother's Hope" by Francine Rivers

Epic. Truly.  Both this and it's companion book, "Her Daughter's Dream" are simply put, wonderful.  I had a hard time putting them down.  Her Mother's Hope is part 1 that takes us all over Europe, Canada, and finally settles in the central valley of California, sweeping over several decades.  I truly enjoy reading novels set in historical and geographical settings so different from my own because I feel as if I learn a ton of history, get a great feel for the time, all while being entertained.  The character of Marta is intriguing; she was not only unusual for her time, but her determination and work ethic is a great example for any one today.  When analyzing the complex relationship between Marta and one of her daughters, Hildemara Rose, it is heartbreaking to see both "sides" of the story played out....and the far reaching effects that misunderstandings can cause.
