Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Her research gives the book depth; her empathy gives it a soul. The Sunday Oregonian
With profound skill, Jane Kirkpatrick weaves a tale of place and time. While entertaining, she teaches me history; while making me laugh, she unfolds significant soul lessons. The only good thing about coming to the end of Kirkpatrick’s superbly crafted book is knowing she is writing another. Mary Anne Radmacher, artist and author of Lean Forward Into Your Life and Live Boldly for A Sweetness to the Soul
In A Sweetness to the Soul, Kirkpatrick offers a testimony to God’s ability to fulfill our dreams, in spite of our human propensity to question the why and how of situations. Through the eyes of Jane Sherar, readers come to recognize that blessings are hidden in the midst of everyday life and often only understood within the context of the passing of time. Cascades East Magazine
This book portrays a love that conquers all obstacles and offers testimony to the miracle of God’s healing power. Bookstore Journal
Jane Kirkpatrick’s particular gift is for capturing the authentic feel and flavor of frontier life; A Sweetness to the Soul is absolutely true to the people and the land as they once were. This is a novel that calls up a period early in the history of Oregon marked not only by hardship, sudden death, spiritual fortitude, and physical endurance, but also by community, one person reaching out to help another so that they might all survive. Molly Gloss, winner of the Whiting Writers Award and author of The Hearts of Horses
