It really hit home to me because I used to be that person who held on to past hurts, and kept myself in my own pity ths. On the other hand, I’m not sure how I feel about the message of the book- I feel like the woman was blamed way more than she should’ve been.

The only good point the book made really was that giving up on a marriage isn’t the solution and that all things can be worked through with God’s help. scarlett

The Scarlet Thread

Different time periods but the two women I loved the book. This book certainly was not what I was expecting. I’m all for love and forgiveness I’m seeing a disturbing trend among Christian francinee where husbands engage in extra-marital affairs and it’s always, ALWAYS ends up being the wife’s fault!!

This story is about two women in different times and the struggles that they go through. I recommend it for anyone married or planning to get married. This book was painful for me to read because I have gone through a divorce. I would read it again, and recommend it to others. The first book I noticed this “talent” in was Her Rivees Hope, and at least in that book the pain was worth it in a th story. If anything, Francine Rivers is the queen of realistically barabed conversations between people in relationship.

Quotes from The Scarlet Thread. I particularly liked reading the part about the issues in the contemporary marriage. Filled with scripture and a friend, but not what some call overly dcarlet this book appeals.

In a way thred reminded me of the Christian movie Fireproof which I do recommend. This is not one that I’d recommend for another reader. What a gentle reminder this was to me that sin is sin – there is no varying degree of less bad or worse sin, only the degree of the consequence.

She should have been a more Christian wife to her husband. The theme of God working through all things is a very encouraging one for me. The first story is about a gradually declining marriage leading to francinee affair and the thrfad is told through the journal of a girl that used to live in the first couple’s family home.

Like all of Francine Rivers’ books that have come before, I was instantly immersed in this one. Like, the climax for me was kind of way before the actual intended climax and then what I think was the intended climax was vaguely anticlimactic.

Wondering how Sierra and Mary will cope with each new incident that comes along kept me turning the pages, eager to read on.

This great read makes the reader take a second look at how words and how they are said can change outcomes, especially when one realizes God is ultimately in control. I felt like I was being told what the book was all about, instead of to use an old writing cliche being shown what was going on.
