I have read several of Ms. Kirkpatrick's books and enjoyed them all. I must say, this book did not disappoint ~ it is a great story! The story is set in the early 1900's and the main character, Jessie is a young woman trying to make her way in a world where woman were bound by the beliefs of an era that did not see or allow them individual freedom or being recognized as a person who is more than a daughter, wife and mother. My heart was moved by Jessie's challenges and triumphs.
What makes this book even more special? Jane Kirkpatrick has written this book based on the life of Jessie Gaebele ~ her grandmother. In writing this story, she blended fact and fiction in a style that she is so well known for. The result? A unique and pretty amazing story. I can't wait to read A Flickering Light which is the first book in Jessie's story!
