More About Francine Rivers
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 awarded or nominated for numerous awards and prizes. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, 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 re-released 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 a classic work of Christian fiction and continues to be one of the Christian Booksellers Association’s top-selling titles; it has held a spot on the Christian bestseller list for nearly a decade.
Since Redeeming Love, Francine has published more than 20 novels with Christian themes - all bestsellers- and she has continued to win both industry acclaim and reader loyalty around the globe. Her Christian novels have been awarded or nominated for numerous awards including the RITA Award, the Christy Award, the ECPA Gold Medallion, and the Holt Medallion in Honor of Outstanding Literary Talent. In 1997, after winning her third RITA award for Inspirational Fiction, Francine was inducted into the Romance Writers’ of America Hall of Fame. In 2007, the feature-length film version of her novel The Last Sin Eater was released in theaters by Fox Faith. In March 2010, Francine officially became a New York Times bestselling author, when Her Mother’s Hope debuted at #12 on the hardcover fiction bestsellers lists. The sequel, Her Daughter’s Dream, debuted at #12 on the same list just 6 months later, in September, 2010. Francine’s novels have been translated into over twenty different languages and she enjoys best-seller status in many foreign countries including Germany, The Netherlands, and South Africa.
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 five grandchildren. She uses her writing to draw closer to the Lord, and that through her work she might worship and praise Jesus for all He has done and is doing in her life.
Francine Rivers currently resides in the state of California. Francine Rivers was born in 1947.

Reviews - What do customers think about Scarlet Thread (Mark Almighty V1) (OP)?
Excellent Christian Fiction Feb 14, 2007
"The Scarlet Thread" has two on-going stories at once and both are entertaining and hold one's attention. One story is set in the present and the other deals with an ancestor from the past.
The present day story portrays how a man has lost himself in his climb on the corporate ladder and thinks he's outgrown his wife. Ms. Rivers weaves a great story as the husband gets his eyes opened and faces losing his family almost before he knows what's happened. He comes to find out his wife is not as docile as he once thought and once she truly seeks God's help, the hubby is in for the ride of his life.
It's a joy to recommend this inspiring book to others.
worth reading Nov 21, 2006
This book has a few structural problems, such as not quite enough continuity between the two parts, and a main character who is at times hard to identify with. But it was still a touching story, exploring marriage problems and the source of true fulfillment. The part about Mary Kathryn McMurray seems the best. Despite a few unrealistic idyllic pioneer scenes, Mary Kathryn's journal was a captivating read.
Great Reading Jul 2, 2006
This book kept my attention so much. I fell in love with the characters and the Lord as I kept reading.
Another Great One Jun 29, 2006
Francine Rivers continues to amaze me.... "Redeeming Love" is by far her best one, but "Scarlet Thread" defintely doesn't disappoint. I'm currently reading "And the Shofar Blew" and as always, i'm glued to the book.
Not as good as The Last Sin Eater or Voice in the Wind. May 16, 2006
The first book that I read by this author was Voice in the Wind. I read the whole series. I also really enjoyed The Last Sin Eater. But I didn't find this book to be as good as those, mostly because I couldn't connect with the main character (Sierra). She was so selfish it was hard to see her being the devoted mother that she was portrayed as. Then she finds God (as all main characters do in Francine Rivers books so I am not giving anything away here) and does a complete 180 becoming this unbelievably selfless person that I still couldn't relate to. I did really like the "story within story" that followed Mary Katherine McMurrays journey. If the whole book was about her, it would have been much better.
