Editorial Reviews

“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

“This book portrays a love that conquers all obstacles and offers testimony to the miracle of God’s healing power.”
- Bookstore Journal

“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

“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

“Her research gives the book depth; her empathy gives it a soul.”
- The Sunday Oregonian

    I read this book when it first came out, several years ago, and became an instant Jane Kirkpatrick fan; have collected all of her books since! This story is so captivating, and Jane makes you feel you are living within the story; she always makes me feel empathy for her characters, even when I don't feel that at first. Wonderful!

    This is a very touching story, a composite of real characters living in a time and part of the country unfamiliar to me. I would recommend it to anyone seeking to understand more of this country's history.
