CSS Blog Tour Interview &Review: Her Mother’s Hope by Francine Rivers

CSS Blog Tour Interview &Review: Her Mother’s Hope by Francine Rivers

Today I am hosting an interview,preview and a review of a wonderful author, Francine Rivers and her newest book, Her Mother’s Hope. About Francine: Francine Rivers began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in English and journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were highly acclaimed by readers and reviewers. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, a mother of three, and an established romance novelist. Shortly after becoming a born-again Christian in 1986, Francine wrote Redeeming Love as her statement of faith. First published by Bantam Books and then rereleased by Multnomah Publishers in the mid-1990s, this retelling of the biblical story of Gomer and Hosea, set during the time of the California Gold Rush, is now considered by many to be a classic work of Christian fiction. Redeeming Love continues to be one of the Christian Booksellers Association’s top-selling titles, and it has held a spot on the Christian best-seller list for nearly a decade. Since Redeeming Love, Francine has… Read more »

Preview&Giveaway: The Cradle by Patrick Somerville

About the Book:Early one summer morning, Matthew Bishop kisses his still-sleeping wife Marissa, gets dressed and eases his truck through Milwaukee, bound for the highway.
