Her Mother's Hope by Francine Rivers (#49)
The book starts with the story of Marta, a determined and capable young woman, growing up in Switzerland in the late 1800's. Marta has an abusive father and meek submissive mother, and knows she is destined for a better life. Forced to quit school and begin working, she is a quick learner and accumulates languages and other skills which serve her well in her life. Eventually she moves to England, then to Canada, and finally to California with her husband Niclas. This book is very well written and enjoyable.There is a sequel which I look forward to reading.
