  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blandine | 2/19/2014

    " A classic. I don't know about the rest of Rivers's work--they look a little like formulaic romance novels--but this one is in style very like a mandatory high school reading classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 2/6/2014

    " I want to give this 4.5 stars. I was a little slow getting into it, but once I did, it was pretty amazing. A little strange, but the message was great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly | 1/31/2014

    " I got this book from my mom for Christmas. I don't remember the year. I do remember that I couldn't put it down until I read the whole thing. I still count it as the best book I ever read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jillain Foreman | 1/29/2014

    " What a gift our salvation is! Fantastic story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 1/15/2014

    " This is one of my absolute favorite books that I have read. Made me feel, cry and look at myself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Day Gilbert | 1/12/2014

    " Having grown up in the Appalachia that Rivers set this novel in, I can say that she nailed the way people talk and do things. I haven't watched the movie yet, but the book was quite mesmerizing for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ns | 1/4/2014

    " Life is full of second chances... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 1/3/2014

    " I just finished it... it was recommended by Sam. It was a very encouraging book! And kept me on the edge of my seat.:) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michaele | 12/28/2013

    " This one took on a different feel than her other ones but her research and informative nature was still there. Through this easy read story my eyes were opened to another cultures traditions on dealing with a human need, how to get right inspite of our sin. I enjoyed this book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Soupyr | 12/27/2013

    " I read this when I was part of a book club and I was the only member who liked it and I couldn't even tell them why- I just liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kt | 12/12/2013

    " Slow start and somewhat predictable but really liked this book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christie | 11/26/2013

    " Amazing!!! I bawled for about the first quarter of this book. Loved it! Gets pretty religious towards the end, but don't let that deter you! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Haley | 11/24/2013

    " The first half way slooooowww! I nearly lost interest... still a good book though with a strong message about faith and family. It's a quick read with good character development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chloe | 11/11/2013

    " This book was good, but it wasn't one of my "binge" books - I could set it down without feeling like I was going to loose my mind. It had a good message on redemption and forgiveness. I think the book "Redeeming Love" by the same author is better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 11/8/2013

    " This is one of my favorites. I can't say how much this book just stays with me. The imagery, the message - not easy to forget. It really takes you to another place in it's beauty and is compounded with such a precious message. In fact, I think I might need to read this one again soon! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Rathbun | 10/20/2013

    " Great themes: redemption, forgiveness, guilt, parent-child relationships, courage. One of my favorite of Rivers' books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy Johnson | 10/15/2013

    " Good fun reading. Recommend for yound adults also "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fatimah | 9/6/2013

    " This was one beautiful book that i read,I term it "Historical inspiration".Here i saw the faith of a little girl and i know i am definately up to the task in the House of God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Desiree Pineda | 6/20/2013

    " Love this story. Very uplifting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 3/7/2013

    " This was my favorite of Francine Rivers' books. I really enjoyed the story, especially because it was told by a child and in such a fascinating cultural situation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 12/11/2012

    " This was a very good! Different from the other Francine Rivers I have read before. Kept my interest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynda | 12/6/2012

    " Language was hard to understand. But when you flowed with it, it became easier. I never understood where the name that lilybet call Cadi came from. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sylvia Poole | 11/3/2012

    " one of the greatest books ii have ever read> "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 10/5/2012

    " This book was okay, a little cheesy in parts. Story was pretty interesting, although sometimes predictable. It did leave me with a good feeling too. Not a fake, wishful-thinking feeling, but a solid, hopeful feeling. Nice to read a book like that! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Knoerr | 9/3/2012

    " I loved this book - the first of Francine Rivers' novels that I have truly enjoyed and would recommend. The characters are well-drawn and authentic, the mysteries compelling and the Appalachian setting in the 1850's is magical. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol Cole | 8/21/2012

    " A good read but liked others by author better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ronel Bredenkamp | 8/19/2012

    " het nog nooit so lank aan n boek gelees nie....... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camille Shrader garland | 8/13/2012

    " I LOVED this book, what a perfect blend of historical fiction, religion, and family ties. This book is just as wonderful as all her others! I really enjoyed the dialect, hard to read at first, but after awhile it totally makes the understanding of the time, early 1800's, fascinating! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lana Spear | 5/16/2012

    " It is a very unusual book, but it will definitely make you think! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adrienne | 4/10/2012

    " probably my least favorite of all of the francine rivers books i have read. just didn't care for thisone AS MUCH "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 3/3/2012

    " This was a great movie. For once Hollywood did a great job taking a book and making a great movie... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ingrid Morris | 2/7/2012

    " This is one of those books that I lend out whenever I get the chance. The picture of Gods grace is so accessible. Love the story, love the imagery. The voice is very authentic. The movie didn't do it justice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yoli | 9/14/2011

    " I loved this book. It is a little hard to get into due to the language used in the book. They are from Ireland, I believe. There is now a movie about the book too. This is a good read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 5/20/2011

    " This book is sooo good! I can't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghanmcfarlin | 5/14/2011

    " I would have liked this book better if she didn't try to write in a way that showed the accents of the people speaking all the time. It was interesting to see that people used to live with the idea of a "sin eater," and I liked the redemption that was brought to that community. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 4/3/2011

    " This one started out kind of slow, and I didn't really understand it at first, but then it all came together and I loved it. What an awesome story about a whole "village" finding the Lord with the help of a man of God and two young kids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 3/30/2011

    " Great story, kind of spooky, and very suspenseful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 3/17/2011

    " This is a great book! i have read and re-read this book more than once! One of my Favourite books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 3/14/2011

    " Rivers writes in a way that makes the power of God's forgiveness and redemption so accessible! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 3/10/2011

    " I want to give this 4.5 stars. I was a little slow getting into it, but once I did, it was pretty amazing. A little strange, but the message was great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 2/27/2011

    " This is the only Francine River's book I've ever enjoyed. Interesting take on what happens when the intent of the Bible is misunderstood and not questioned for generations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 2/6/2011

    " I enjoyed the storyline, but the last part of the book got very preachy/testifying. I don't have a problem with the content, I am a believer, but it was almost to the detriment of the story. "
