Ruth  (rguerrier-pierre) | 8 comments I listened to it recently and I loved it. Has anyone read it? What do you?

It is one of my absolute favorite novels! It was one of the first Christian fiction novels that I read, once I branched out from Liz Curtis Higgs. At first, I was surprised that Christian Fiction "was allowed" to go into such "bad" situations, but then came to realize that was part of what made it so fabulous, because it was REAL. Real and Christian, what could be better? The emotions and everything that she shows to portray such loving and forgiveness is just wonderful. Believe it or not, it is the only thing of Francine Rivers that I have read, I think.

Ruth  (rguerrier-pierre) | 8 comments I agree with you. It pierced my heart and filled me with content at the end when she finally got THE ANSWER; the truth. It is really different from some christian novels that dip in to the darkness, but than suddenly everything is fixed quickly. In this novel Angel was broken and graduallly, more realistically she is pieced together again. If you like "Redeeming Love" than you will like "The Scarlet Thread". It is similar in that the story is complicated and even in the end things are not made perfectly, but you can see with work it will.

I take it back, I've read Leota's Garden too, and I think that is Francine Rivers. I bought The Scarlet Thread at the library last week ($0.50 couldn't pass it up). I have not read it yet though. But it is on my shelf to read. Unlike most people with a to read stack, I have a to read bookshelf...

Ruth  (rguerrier-pierre) | 8 comments I read "Leota's Garden", but I don't really remember it. I will have to read-read it. When you read "The Scarlet Thread" let me know what you think.
