This is the one and only book I've read this month, but it was a good one. "A Mending at the Edge" Jane Kirkpatrick's final novel in her change and cherish series.
Jane lives in Oregon and writes books based on real women of history in Oregon. She is one of my favorite authors.
"Of all the things I left in Willapa, hope is what I missed the most." so begins this story of one woman's restoration from personal grief to the meaning of community. Based on the life of German-American Emma Wagner Giesy, the only woman sent to the Oregon Territory in the 1850's to help found a communal society, award-winning author Jane Kirkpatrick shows how landscape, relationships, spirituality and artistry poignantly reflect a woman's desire to weave a unique and meaningful legacy from the threads of an ordinary life. While set in the historical past, it's a story for our own time answering the question; Can threads of an isolated life weave a legacy of purpose in community?"
I bet if you read a Jane Kirkpatrick book you will become hooked on her writing's and have to read every novel just as I have.
