    I have to admit this book's cover appeared to me a bit fluffish promising the kind of tame hopeful message dipped in sugar that some faith inspired books tend to have I have noticed with a great many Christian novels this attempt to show that having a relationship with Christ suddenly fixes everything and makes it better I love that about faith fiction but I realized at some point that I was reading them for escape in much the same manner that I watch Disney movies everything ties up neatly at the end It makes for emotional stories that pull at my heartstrings but never quite hit me in the gut Because the truth is that even while we live our faith in hope suffering continues to exist whether in our relationships with others our misunderstandings of God or in bearing the hardships others might bring or even in recognizing over and over again our own weaknesses The books that dismiss the strenuous challenge of persevering with God one moment at a time are day lily types of books Francine Rivers has the ability to write an inspiring novel without sugar coating the hard edges of life She made it possible to love Marta even when Marta often says some very cruel things to her daughter I was able to identify with both Marta and Hildemara Rose even while feeling the angst and the near misses of their relationship Sometimes I wanted to laugh and cheer Marta on her fearlessness of people her gift of challenging others and bringing out their best was such a fun thing to watch unfold Until she started yelling at her husband all the time and failing to trust him when it was clear that he deeply loved her and God then I felt like shaking her And Hildemara Rose there were times when her deep faith and ability to pray for her teacher even under constant criticism were very beautiful then again there were also times when like Marta I wanted her to show some backbone Sometimes Marta had the perfect action or word for her daughter often she said or did the exact thing that would most injure Hildemara What I take away from this book is that each of us have our particular gift beautiful in itself but none of us are at our best without others who compliment these gifts and show us ways other than our own Painful or not Marta needed Hildie's gentle as doves way of faith and Hildemara needed someone like her mother to show the crafty as serpents way Secondly I saw that most of us in our deepest relationships would benefit from slowing down not reacting so quickly and learning to listen quietly to the other Marta never learned to react to Hildie apart from seeing the bad consequences of her own sister whom Hildie resembled We can often be so blind to what is in front of us because of the past which is behind us Last I saw that despite our best intentions it is hard to escape the little chafings we give each other as we grow in character and faith It is easy to imagine the perfect family who never argues or says hurtful things but we all do and the painful process of learning to love each other in these circumstances is often redeeming than if we were the type of family which could exist in constant harmony
