Publisher's Summary

Two women, centuries apart, are joined through a tattered journal as they contend with God, husbands, and even themselves...until they fall into the arms of the One who loves them unconditionally.
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. By following Mary Kathryn's example, Sierra learns to surrender to God?s sovereignty and unconditional love.

Loved It

I've read several Francine Rivers novels over the years, and each of them are amazing. This novel is no exception. This novel made me laugh, cry, think, Etc. Both the narrators were fantastic. I've said this before, but I love how Francine's books make you really look at your own life. Even if the story doesn't match your life exactly, you take away something from each novel.
Thank you audible for putting this novel up. I read this book in 2 days. Another five star read from Francine.
If this is your first Francine Rivers novel, check out Redeeming Love and the Mark Of The Lion trilogy.

Weaving threads

What made the experience of listening to The Scarlet Thread the most enjoyable?

Francine Rivers masterfully sets the stage for a story that a describes the lives of too many of us who get caught up in ourselves and our own desires. She weaves through her tale the historical diary of a woman moved against her will and the painful journey to finding peace through Jesus. The parallel stories are intriguing and a pleasure to read.
