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.
Francine and her husband, Rick, live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their grandchildren.From AudioFile:
Aimee Lillys versatile range and skill unite the story of Sierra and Alex, and their marital problems, with that of Sierras ancestor, Mary Katherine, and her husband, who suffer devastating hardships together on the Oregon Trail. Lilly matches mood to voice when Sierra discovers Mary Katherines handcrafted quilt and reads her journal entries, finding similarities in their lives and the nature of their problems. Lilly portrays Mary Katherine with a Southern accent and a nineteenth-century vocabulary, and then slips into a warm tone and modern rhythm in her portrayal of Sierra. Lillys adept pacing and empathy capture this multilayered story of two women searching for meaning during difficult times. With exceptional honesty Lilly delivers a strong, believable performance.
