Product Description

Letitia holds nothing more dear than the papers that prove she is no longer a slave. They may not cause white folks to treat her like a human being, but at least they show she is free. She trusts in those words she cannot read--as she is beginning to trust in Davey Carson, an Irish immigrant cattleman who wants her to come west with him.

Nancy Hawkins is loathe to leave her settled life for the treacherous journey by wagon train, but she is so deeply in love with her husband that she knows she will follow him anywhere--even when the trek exacts a terrible cost.

Betsy is a Kalapuya Indian, the last remnant of a once proud tribe in the Willamette Valley in Oregon territory. She spends her time trying to impart the wisdom and ways of her people to her grandson. But she will soon have another person to care for.

Publisher's Description

Letitia holds nothing more dear than the papers that prove she is no longer a slave. They may not cause white folks to treat her like a human being, but at least they show she is free. She trusts in those words she cannot read--as she is beginning to trust in Davey Carson, an Irish immigrant cattleman who wants her to come west with him.

Nancy Hawkins is loathe to leave her settled life for the treacherous journey by wagon train, but she is so deeply in love with her husband that she knows she will follow him anywhere--even when the trek exacts a terrible cost.

Betsy is a Kalapuya Indian, the last remnant of a once proud tribe in the Willamette Valley in Oregon territory. She spends her time trying to impart the wisdom and ways of her people to her grandson. But she will soon have another person to care for.

As season turns to season, suspicion turns to friendship, and fear turns to courage, three spirited women will discover what it means to be truly free in a land that makes promises it cannot fulfill. This multilayered story from bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick will grip readers' hearts and minds as they travel with Letitia on the dusty and dangerous Oregon trail into the boundless American West.

    Jane Kirkpatrick is a masterful storyteller and her latest, A Light in the Wilderness, is a must-read for the sheer beauty of a story well-told! Not only is this a story of one woman's courage, it is a story about overcoming struggle and persevering in the midst of injustice. It shows us what loyalty and friendship can do for the human spirit. Jane Kirkpatrick uses words to paint a vibrant landscape where we can enjoy a respite from our own world for a time. Her characters are believable and courageous, giving us an adventure in human drama as if we trod right along with them through the perils and pleasures of the Oregon Trail. A good story gives us important things to think about along the way while we enjoy the artistry. But even beyond that, this book breathes life into an important yet little-known story. Leticia Carson's life can light the way for many; fortunately for us all, Jane Kirkpatrick has put the kindling to the flame.

    A Light in the Wilderness is amazingly rich in historic detail yet so easy to read. Letitia is a woman who has friends because she knows how to be a friend, one I have whole-heartedly welcomed into my world. In spite of the dangers she faces in life, she stands as a powerful example of strength and a determination to prevail against the odds while maintaining her kind heart and admirable character.
