- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I came across Jane Kirkpatrick's books by accident. I purchased my first one - All Together In One Place -- at a garage sale, but I've gone on to purchase & read (devour, actually) all her other books, including Homestead which I've given to as gifts to an aspiring writer (my daughter-in-law) and a dear friend who's "homesteading" in a rugged, out-of-the way corner of southwest Texas.
As a newcomer to Jane's work, I was fortunate to be able to go from one book in the series right into the next. I just finished A Flickering Light and wonder how I'll ever be able to wait until next year for the second book of her grandmother's story.
I share my Jane Kirkpatrick books with friends and family, all except the Tender Ties series which I can't see ever leaving my library. All who read her books agree -- you know it's a good book when you start reading and can't put it down, but along about 3/4 of the way through, you slow down because you don't want the experience to end!
