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.

    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.

    All she left behind is a fantastic heart wrenching love entangling , boundary pushing story . You start off in the book with Jennie getting married and having her husband falling hitting his head her wanting to help but of course she can't she is just a woman . Then all of a sudden she has a strong willed challenging three-year-old. She then realizes hey wait I'm not going to tell you the whole story, let's just say something miraculous,I believe, but others wouldn't , happens and in that something serious will happen and she even maybe finds true love , all the while having this challenging son. I think she is amazing , a Blessing, true grit and strong as could be . I received this from the publisher and Netgalley; all the opinions expressed in this review are all my own.

    I can't get enough of Jane Kirkpatrick's historical novels. She has such a gift of resurrecting long forgotten figures from the past and allowing us to take a journey with them. Most of her leading characters are women and that's what we find in All She Left Behind.

    Jennie Pickett is a young bride when we first meet her. A minor accident on her wedding day changes the entire scope of her married life. But Jennie is nothing but persistent. She's the epitome of "when life gives you lemons . . . make lemonade." For the first part of the novel we see Jennie being dealt blow after blow until the dreams she had for herself and her family seem impossible.

    But Jennie serves a God of the possible. I don't want to give away the plot so I will just say that Jennie's story is inspiring. You will be reminded to never give up on a dream. It may be delayed far longer than you can imagine but if it's from God it will come to pass.

    I can't stress enough to read the author's notes at the end. There is an epilogue that gives you part of the rest of the story. But the author's notes are like an epilogue to the epilogue. Fascinating stuff. If you are looking for a great read about a real person that will inspire you to dream big, this is the book for you!

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
