Item description for A Gathering of Finches (Dreamcatcher Series #3) by Jane Kirkpatrick...

Lottie, my Coos Indian maid, called it "the going over place." So begins the tangled tale based on the life of Cassie Hendrick Stearns Simpson, who crossed the Oregon coastal tidewaters in 1899 to begin her life beside the prosperous entrepreneur Louis Simpson on Oregon's wild and rugged coast. Cassie seemed to have it all: an adoring husband, a loving sister, a daughter, and social position. She inspired a luscious four-acre garden that today is an Oregon state park. She had wealth to buy anything her heart desired. But fluttering beneath the surface of her seemingly charmed life were self-doubt, fear, and the consequences of poor choices. All robbed her heart of peace, and left her empty and still longing for something more. Others attempted to lead her toward decisions that would bring her peace, but as with each of us, only Cassie could make the choices that would truly change her life.

In The Author's Own Words...

If you'd like more information about me, please come visit my website at and click on my blog. My dog also has a blog and you can find out what it's like to be Bodacious Bo, too. A monthly newsletter called Story Sparks is my way of sharing books about authors I enjoy as well as commenting on life and love. You'll find out more about me than you probably ever wanted to know!

One item not listed on my lists of books is my selection included in an anthology called "Crazy Woman Creek: Women Rewrite the American West" published by Houghton Mifflin I also have a piece in Storytellers II, a book published a few years ago by Multnomah Press and a few short selections in Daily Guideposts of a few years back. My first novella, "The Courting Quilt" is part of a collection that made the New York Times bestsellers September 2011 in a collection called Log Cabin Christmas. The rest of my writing, as they say, is history. Or it was until my first contemporary came out this fall. Called Barcelona Calling, it's the story of a writer who loses her way as she seeks fulfillment thinking she'll find it with fame. It's a laugh out loud book according to reviewers. I hope you'll enjoy it.

Jane Kirkpatrick currently resides in Bend, in the state of Oregon. Jane Kirkpatrick was born in 1946.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Gathering of Finches (Dreamcatcher Series #3)?

Loved It!  May 12, 2007
I absolutely loved this book! I could not put it down, nor could I stop thinking about the book for a week after I had finished it. The research the author put into this book is amazing. It made me want to learn more about the main characters in this book, the Simpsons, and to visit the site of Shore Acres, their home, which is now a state park.
agree with slow and dull  Mar 10, 2006
I am an Oregonian and found this to be painful to read. My book group selected it, otherwise I would have stopped at 100 pages. I am writing this, my first review, to provide some balance to the glowing reports given this poorly written so called historical novel. I finally gave up on page 289 unwilling to waste any more time on undeveloped characters, sentences without subjects, and more questions raised than answered.
Horrible. My rating - 5 stars.
I read nearly a book a day, yet will never forget this story  Sep 26, 2004
Jane Kirkpatrick transports you in her books, bringing rich stories to life. I read this book about 18 months ago, yet it stands out in my mind as one of my top reads for the past decade.
Susan McMonagle
This book got me hooked  Mar 4, 2004
I had never heard of Jane until I picked this book off the shelf several years ago. It was the cover photo that caught my attention. From that point on I was hooked. I have every book she has written. She just has such a wonderful talent to weave a story with historical substance. I have not been disappointed in anything she has written.
Slow-going and Dull  Oct 25, 2002
I suspect you might have to be an Oregonian to like this book, and a patient one at that. (I read it as the choice of another member of my book group.) Although I'm a voracious reader, I found "Finches," like many ersatz 20th-century "Victorian" novels, way too long--and I was able to foresee at least one crucial development of the plot long before it was revealed. The author at times has a rather clipped style and uses words in what at best might be considered an unusual or "fresh" way, but I often had to reread her sentences to figure out their meaning. The two lead characters especially were unappealing and the ostentatious description of their ostentatious wealth was boring. Unless you live in Oregon and are a committed devotee of its history, don't waste your time on this one. I would have given this book no star at all if I had been given that choice.
