In 1936, 15-year-old Miriam Gresham of River Bluff, Idaho, wanted nothing more than to be a famous actress, just like Greta Garbo. But God had other things in mind.
The remarkable story of her life of faith comes to light at an estate sale… and to restless Julianna Crosby, it’s a priceless find!
“Hatcher writes with a strength and compassion that celebrates the impact of one devout woman on the people around her. Highly recommended.“—Library Journal
“Bring out the tissues, folks. This is a story from the author’s heart, no doubt, and her best so far. No contrived plot lines or stereotypical characters here.” (4 1/2 Stars, Top Pick for July)—Romantic Times Magazine
In what I found to be one of the most gratifying, heart wrenching story this year, Ribbon of Years carefully winds the reader through nearly seventy years of Miriam Gresham’s life… I have long been a fan of Ms. Hatcher’s books, but Ribbon of Years became my favorite. It is not an easy read emotionally, the spans involving the bombing of Pearl Harbor, World War II, and the effects war has on the townspeople can easily relate to today’s War Against Terrorism. This poignant view of one woman’s life is a superb read, and one I am glad I did not miss! Be sure to grab a box of Kleenex first, and curl up with Ribbon of Years.”—Romance Reader’s Connection
“Miriam’s story examines how trust in God can bring people through difficult times. Readers who enjoy strong character depictions will especially enjoy this story, but keep the tissues handy. Miriam’s life isn’t sugarcoated, but a testament to triumph over adversity.”—CBA Marketplace
