Hey everybody! How you all doing? Well Im just so excited to tell you about this book I just read:
The Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers!
I ordered it last week from amazon and it came 2 days ago and I haven't been able to put it down since!!!!!!
The Scarlet Thread is a christian fiction book and follows the lives of 2 women:
Sierra Madrid: Sierra is a woman of today. Bold. Determined. Her life is about to be turned upside down! and then:
Mary Kathryn McMurray: She is a young pioneer on the oregan trail. She is filled with anger at being uprooted from her home.
Two women, centuries apart,are joined through a tattered journal as they contend with God, their husbands - even themselves - until they fall into the arms if the One who loves them unconditionally.
As soon as this book arrived I was excited! I think Francine Rivers is exceptional and I was just thrilled to be holding a new book of hers! The smell of fresh new books never been used I love that!
This book is FANTASTIC! It is SO well written! Everyone knows that you can have a great story but without great writing it fails to come to life! Well in this book 'Francine Rivers writes like a dream!'
The story flows together as she explores some of the issues in the book like Hope, Faith, Forgiveness, Love, Endurance, Acceptance, Fear and many more and ultimately our need for a saviour! For God to be in our lives and for us to have a relationship with him.
This book is exceptionally well written and I would recommend it to anyone! It gives a real insight into what Love truly is.You truly fall in love with the characters and go on their journey with them!
What stood out was that:
Firstly that God truly loves us, Secondly that he said "I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, Plans to prosper and not to harm you but plans to give you a hope and a future!" (Jer 29:11) and that he works all things together for good to them that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28)
He cares about EVERY detail of our lives! Every last one! :)
You can buy this book from www.amazon.co.uk for £4.44 it just might be the best £4.44 you ever spend!
God Bless love
