Praise for Books 1 and 2 in The Tender Ties Historical Series
"Jane Kirkpatrick writes from a depth and richness of detailed research and from a genuine affection and respect for her characters. She gives us strong, admirable women with sensitive spirits, courage, and the capacity for unconditional love. Hold Tight the Thread is a thoughtful, skillfully prepared feast for those of us always hungry for more quality historical fiction. Like her other novels, this is a story that allows us to experience the struggles and adventures and faith of another time through characters we can learn to knowand love."
--B.J. Hoff, author of The American Anthem series and An Emerald Ballad
"Hold Tight the Thread is such a satisfying ending to a wonderful trilogy on the life of such a memorable woman, Marie Dorion. I learned so much even as I felt a range of emotions sad, happy, bittersweet, and triumphant. I love this book!"
--Linda Hall, author of Steal Away and Chat Room
"I highly recommend Every Fixed Star. Jane Kirkpatricks storytelling is deft and true; she breathes life into the long-ago Oregon country with warmth, emotion, and a deep understanding of the regions people and past. With depth, creativity, and inspiration, Every Fixed Star provides a fresh view of this period in the Pacific Northwests history, showing the complicated dynamics between settlers, fur traders, missionaries, natives, and visionaries. Jane has vividly captured the history of the fur trade for intelligent women readers."
Laurie Winn Carlson, author of Seduced by the West and On Sidesaddles to Heaven: The Women of the Rocky Mountain Mission
"Jane Kirkpatrick has a rare gift, for her novels touch both the emotions and the intellect. She fills her stories with living history, each rich detail carefully researched and woven into a very particular time and placethe Columbia Country of the 1820s. And yet, Every Fixed Star is far from a dry history; rather, it is the moving, heartfelt story of one womans journey toward accepting her own failings as a wife and as a mothera struggle common to every woman in every century. Through Maries heart knowing, we are forced to examine our own hearts and lives and emerge the better for it. Janes novels are more than a good read; they are a life-altering experience."
Liz Curtis Higgs, author of Thorn in My Heart
"[An] evocative, imagined retelling of the story of Marie Dorion, the remarkable Iowa Indian woman who crossed the continent with her young sons and her mixed-blood husband in 1811 as part of the first grand expedition after Lewis and Clark… As always, the historically accurate details are woven in with care, and the characters are fully imagined. At the story s end, the reader absolutely believes Marie was an Ioway woman of the Gray Snow people; gray like the stuff that strengthened bones. A truly fine book."
The Denver Post, in praise of A Name of Her Own, Book One of the Tender Ties Historical series

Now I need to go back and read the first two books. It was a great family history book and I really enjoyed it.

I wish I had read the first ones, may still do that. The historical insights were really great. Good read!

I did not read the first two books in this series, so I might have understood this third one better if I had. I have only gotten to a few pages so far, and I have to say it is hard for me to get into at this point. I hope it will get better.

I live about five miles from St. Lewis, OR where Marie is said to be buried; her gravesite is thought to be under the crossroads of this former community. It took me awhile to really get into this series; but I ended up totally engrossed in the story. Jane Kirkpatrick has a way of making her characters and history come alive. She is an Oregon author, whom I have met, and I have learned more about the places and events she writes about than any history class I ever took. I have them all - her books, that is!!!

Finishing this book was like saying good bye to a dear friend. I did not want to say good bye. The subtle presentation of profound wisdom through the character of Marie is like following the guiding light of a star. I will miss that star.
