News from the Library: This month we would like to highlight two books in keeping with Mothers Day: (these books will be located in front of the library window unless they have been borrowed) Her Mothers Hope by Francine Rivers (Book 1). The following is a summary from Amazon. Near the turn of the twentieth century, fiery Marta Schneider leaves Switzerland for a better life, determined to fulfill her mothers hope. Her formative journey takes her through Europe and eventually to Canada, where she meets handsome Niclas Waltert. But nothing has prepared her for the sacrifices she must make for marriage and motherhood as she travels to the Canadian wil-derness and then to the dusty Central Valley of California to raise her family. Martas hope is to give her children a better life, but experience has taught her that only the strong survive. Her tough love is often misunder-stood, especially by her oldest daughter, Hilde-mara Rose, who craves her mothers acceptance. Amid the drama of World War II, Hildie falls in love and begins a family of her own. But unex-pected and tragic events force mother and daughter to face their own shortcomings and the ever-widening chasm that threatens to separate them forever. Her Daughters Dream by Francine Rivers (Book 2). The following is a summary from Amazon. Growing up isnt easy for little Carolyn Arundel. With her mother, Hildemara, quaran-tined to her room with tuberculosis, Carolyn forms a special bond with her oma Marta, who moves in to care for the household. But as ten-sions between Hildie and Marta escalate, Carolyn believes she is to blame. When Hildie returns to work and Marta leaves, Carolyn and her brother grow up as latchkey kids in a world gripped by the fear of the Cold War. College offers Carolyn the chance to find herself, but a family tragedy shatters her newfound inde-pendence. Rather than return home, she cuts all ties and disappears into the heady counterculture of San Francisco. When she reemerges two years later, more lost than ever, she reluctantly turns to her family to help rebuild a life for her and her own daughter, May Flower Dawn. =>
The Food Ministry is supported by Missions of Mercy, FAITH Riders,

is a necessity.

=> Just like Carolyn, May Flower Dawn develops a closer bond with her grand-mother, Hildie, than with her mother, causing yet another rift between genera-tions. But as Dawn struggles to avoid the mistakes of those who went before her, she vows that somehow she will be a bridge between the women in her family rather than the wall that separates them forever. Please come by the library and borrow these books or take time to peruse the shelves for other books you would like to read. Our door is always open to you. Thank you to those of you that have do-nated books. We
