WaterBrook Press A Mending at the Edge, Change and Cherish Series #3

So begins this story of one womans 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 1850s to help found a communal society, award-winning author Jane Kirkpatrick shows how landscape, relationships, spirituality and artistry poignantly reflect a womans desire to weave a unique and meaningful legacy from the threads of an ordinary life. While set in the historical past, its a story for our own time answering the question: Can threads of an isolated life weave a legacy of purpose in community?

I was sad to come to the end of this series. I didn't think Kirkpatrick could possibly keep up the pace she kept in the first two of this saga but she did. I enjoyed every page and have ordered more of her books.

This entire series was excellent. The historical research alone is worth the reader's time. Each character is so well defined that the reader finds themselves in discussion with them throughout the book. Jane's gift of writing is a blessing and her authentic faith refreshing when so many authors skirt around their beliefs.

I thought the book was very good. I felt like I was living in Aurora. Emma was a very strong woman of faith.

I loved this book....but then I have loved all of Jane's books that I've read. Wish there was going to be a fourth book in the series, maybe about the children now. I really don't like to say goodbye to any of the characters, as I get pretty attached to them. Thanks Jane for another wonderful book.

I had a hard time putting this novel down and was amazed at how well it manages to stay true to the past while relating remarkably well to todays modern women. A story of grace and redemption, A Mending at the Edge is a page turner.
