Item description for A Sweetness to the Soul (Dreamcatcher Series #1) by Jane Kirkpatrick...

Overview
"Like the slow rising of the river after an early snow melt in the mountains, he seeped into my life; unhurried, almost without notice, until the strength and breadth of him covered everything that had once been familiar, made it different, new over old." Based on historical characters and events, A SWEETNESS TO THE SOUL recounts the captivating story of young, spirited Oregon pioneer Jane Herbert who at the age of twelve faces a tragedy which begins a life-long search for forgiveness and love. Filled with heart-warming insight and glimpses of real-life pain, this book paints a brilliant picture of love that conquers all obstacles and offers a powerful testimony to the miracle of God's healing power. The author's research gives the book depth; her empathy gives it a soul.

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 Sweetness to the Soul (Dreamcatcher Series #1)?

Passages in this excellent book will find a home in your soul  Sep 17, 2006
The author's amazing ability to capture the mind and thoughts of a young girl who has experienced tragedy and then rejection from her cold distant mother had me hooked from the very beginning. The story is told through this girl's eyes as she finds herself alone in the world, desperately wanting love and forgiveness. That this book won awards is a given...it's outstanding! I was so impressed with many of the passages in this book, I wrote many of them down to enjoy again and again. The author weaves a story of God's many blessings without being "preachy" or "sweet and sappy" and gives you a history of those early pioneer days as if you were actually there living among the people. I've put one of the passages on my wall that reads: "The eagle soared not only by his own efforts, but by the strength of something else - by the strength of the wind and his willingness to bend to it." Good words to live by. I plan on reading more of Jane Kirkpatrick's works! Thanks for the good read Jane!
 
First Line, First page? First Chapter.  Jul 4, 2006
It is rather common to note impressive first lines written by famed writers. Editors speak of the importance of the first, the first three, or the first five pages. All of that is worthy of consideration. Reading--an incredibly wide variety and number of books--is almost like breathing to me, and I note these things pages I have mentioned, but:

By far the best first chapter I have ever read was in A Sweetness to the Soul.
 
Inspirational and Well Written  Mar 9, 2005
I typically don't like historical novels but was given this novel by a friend. From the moment I started reading it swept me away and I found I couldn't put it down. Jane Kirkpatrick writes a beautiful story and chooses words that take you there and let you smell the flowers along the way. Very well done.
 
A Sweetness to the Soul  May 31, 2003
I absolutely loved this book! I was so anxious to read every word, all the time not wanting it to end. It was so real to me, I could smell the fresh air and feel the spray from the the Falls. I felt the pain of each loss, but also the joy of love, friendship and very hard work. Jane Sherar was unbelievably brave, as was her wonderful husband Joseph and to think that they were a very real part of settling that part of our country. They feared nothing but the thought of losing each other. They had such a fierce devotion and loyalty to the people with whom they shared their lives: Benito, Sunmiet, the Turners, Ella and all the others. Jane Kirkpatrick is such a prolific writer, with a wonderful knack of giving us every detail, making us feel a part of the lives and the community of every book she writes. Just an outstanding book...I loved it!
