Publisher's Description

Already well-versed in the natural healing properties of herbs and oils, Jennie Pickett longs to become a doctor. But the Oregon frontier of the 1870s doesn't approve of such innovations as women attending medical school. To leave grief and guilt behind, as well as support herself and her challenging young son, Jennie cares for an elderly woman using skills she's developed on her own. When her patient dies, Jennie discovers that her heart has become entangled with the woman's widowed husband, a man many years her senior. Their unlikely romance may lead her to her ultimate goal--but the road will be winding and the way forward will not always be clear. Will Jennie find shelter in life's storms? Will she discover where healing truly lives?

Through her award-winning, layered storytelling, New York Times bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick invites readers to leave behind their preconceived notions about love and life as they, along with Jennie, discover that dreams may be deferred--but they never really die. Based on a true story.

    A masterfully told true life story in the hands of a talented author! Jane Kirkpatrick brings to life a story of a woman in history who I didn't know existed until now. A real pioneer for women in today's world, especially in the medical field! A woman who faced her own heartache & pain and rose above it with the help of those she most treasured around her. Kirkpatrick weaves the pages of a diary and historical accounts together so beautifully it makes one want to look up this remarkable woman in the archives! I adore this author in the first place & now I remember why. A very highly recommended read for those seeking to breathe new life into the story of a real woman who lived decades ago!

    Be sure to read the author's acknowledgments and notes at the end of the book where she talks about how this story came to be. Very fascinating and insightful!

    I look forward to every single book of Jane's, and this one did not disappoint! Jane picks strong, innovative, brave women from history and brings them alive with her meticulous research, vibrant storytelling and strong faith. Jennie Pickett's story deserved to be brought forward, as did every woman that Jane has chosen to write about.

    Why do we pick the authors we choose to read? For me, their ability to bring their characters to life before my eyes is key. When I fall in love with an author, and buy every book they write, it's a testament to the strength of their conviction and dedication to their stories as well as their talent in putting the vision in their heads and hearts onto the printed page to share with me. I am blessed every time I read Jane's books, and will always be excited to open the cover on her newest endeavor.

    I have been fascinated by the old ways of medicinal healing. From natural cures and remedies found in plants to the various ways oils can be used to induce healing over prescription bills doctors hand out. That is what drew me to read All She Left Behind by Jane Kirkpatrick. Jennie Pickett is the character I can identify with because she has a desire to truly learn from the plants and herbs she collects as well as the oils themselves she removes from them to aid in healing those who come to her for treatment. In a time where women wanting to become doctors was discouraged, Jennie goes out of her way to learn all she can. Of course, with her husband Charles, and her young son Douglas, she hardly has time to devote to that, but she does know it can contribute to the family's finances.

    Her husband Charles, works for the prison and has become increasingly violent in his angry outbursts toward Jennie, calling her efforts foolish when she should be doing more to care for his needs. Now with the abuse becoming physical, Jennie has to find ways to make their lives better, in hopes her husband will be content with what life has offered them. But when he turns to alcohol and cocaine, she still holds out hope she can help him with her home remedies but Charles wants nothing to do with her foolish treatments. What he wants from her is to help him convince their local pastor to help them become real estate investors since Charles believes he can truly get out from under working at the prison and provide a life style he feels he deserves and only Jennie and Douglas would benefit.

    But as Jennie constantly bends over backward for Charles, she soon learns the ugly truth, when she finds he has given her young son cocaine during one of his late night outings and she can no longer let this continue. She sees that Charles is using the money loaned to them from the pastor's family to buy things that will increase their "look of prosperity"'to future clients but soon Charles confesses things have gotten out of hand and he has lost most of the money in a bad deal with a unlikely customer. He divorces Jennie without regard for her feelings and when the two head home, they find that Charles has taken everything and left them with only their clothes in the home they once shared.

    I received All She Left Behind by Jane Kirkpatrick compliments of Baker Publishing Group and NetGalley. I found myself as I was reading, looking up the medicinal uses for the oils Jennie dispenses to her customers to help them and find myself wanting to search for more homeopathic remedies to what ails us over the pharmaceutical industry standards. I really felt for Jennie when things just kept going from bad to worse, but she always wanted to believe that with forgiveness, hope is possible despite the situation at present and loved that her outlook on things remained positive. I easily give this book a 5 out of 5 stars and especially LOVED the author's note section at the conclusion which gives readers an idea of how this story line evolved from true historical facts, There is even an oil and herb guide at the conclusion so readers can take advantage of Jennie's homeopathic remedies and uses.

    If you are a fan of Jane Kirkpatrick you will want to pick up this one and give it a read. If you have never read her work before, you will want to pick up this book if you like real life, hard reads that pull you in and you can't stop reading no matter how hard the words are to hear. That's a sign of an amazing author. Jane drew me in and I just couldn't stop reading until it was over. There were definitely parts to this book that were very hard to read and I found myself wanting to pray for the characters. Disturbing, raw, realistic, real life situations... all fit into this read.

    Jane Kirkpatrick finds the most interesting true-life heroines to highlight in her fictional biographies. Lesser known women who have lived exemplary lives. Women who define the pioneering spirit. Women like Jennie Pickett.

    I'm astounded at everything she went through and what she accomplished despite so many hardships. An intelligent woman with a learning disability that made reading difficult who becomes a doctor? That's something to shout about in this day and age but in the late 1800s it's inconceivable. And Jennie's story is rife with emotional ups and downs though she remains steadfast in her faith.

    Captivating, compelling and mind boggling. If you enjoy biographies of strong women who make a difference while overcoming insurmountable odds then this is definitely the book for you.
