Carol Stream, IL To meet the demand for Her Mother’s Hope, the highly anticipated historical novel by Francine Rivers releasing on Tuesday, March 16, Tyndale House Publishers has ordered another printing, bringing the total in print to over 125,000 copies.

“Customers are already placing additional orders to meet the strong prerelease response from consumers,” said Sharon Heggeland, Sales Operations Director. “Our agreement with our customers is to comply with the March 16 ‘Street Date’ release, and we look forward to a highly successful launch next Tuesday.”

Her Mother’s Hope, the first full-length novel Francine Rivers has written since 2003, is inspired by strong women from the author’s heritage. This is the first of two novels in the Marta’s Legacy series, spanning two continents and four generations of women, and Tyndale will release the sequel, Her Daughter’s Dream, in the fall of 2010.

Her Mother’s  Hope has received wonderful reviews:

    “Rivers’ novel will appeal to readers who enjoy historical fiction and sweeping family sagas with exotic settings.”  —Booklist

    “This well-told tale will have readers eagerly awaiting the story’s resolution.”   
    Publishers Weekly

    “Rivers proves once more that she can keep readers transfixed and wanting more.”   
    Christian Retailing 

    “Francine Rivers has done it again! It’s an amazing story that gives the perspective of a European in North America during World War I and World War II.”  —Retailers + Resources

On March 19 and 20 Francine Rivers joins Beth Moore, author of the New York Times best seller So Long, Insecurity, in an exclusive “Heart of Texas” tour, visiting Barnes & Noble stores—two in the Dallas area, plus two in Houston.
