Description of Her Daughter's Dream, Marta's Legacy Series Book 2 by Francine Rivers
In the epic conclusion to Her Mother’s Hope, beloved author Francine Rivers once again examines the intricacies of mother-daughter relationships spanning across family generations.
The Cold War has begun and Carolyn is struggling to navigate her shifting family landscape along with the changing times. With her mother, Hildemara, away in a tuberculosis sanatorium, Carolyn develops a special bond with her Oma Marta. But when Hildie returns, tensions between she and Marta escalate, and Carolyn feels she is to blame. College offers the chance to find herself, but a family tragedy shatters her independence. Rather than return home, she cuts all ties and disappears in the heady culture of San Fransisco. When she reemerges two years later, more lost than ever, only her family can help rebuild a life for her and her daughter, May Flower Dawn.
Just like Carolyn, May Flower Dawn develops a closer bond with her grandmother, Hildie, than with her mother, causing yet another rift between generations. But as Dawn struggles to avoid the mistakes of those who went before her, she vows that somehow, she will be a bridge between her mother and grandmother rather than the wall that separates them forever. Spanning the 1950s to the present day, Her Daughter’s Dream is the final chapter of an unforgettable family saga about the sacrifices every mother makes for her daughter – and the very nature of unconditional love.
