      This book contains three books: A Clearing in the Wild, A Tendering in the Storm, and A Mending at the Edge, based on the true story of Emma Wagner Giesy. She grew up in the Bethel, Missouri communal religious colony headed by Dr. Keil. At 18, she married Christian Giesy, a man about 20 years older. A year or so later, in 1853, they were two of nine scouts sent to the west to find another location for their colony. There were what seems like now to be rigid guidelines for German women in the colony to follow. Emma was not one to be put in this mold. Sometimes this served her well, other times it led her into deep trouble. The books show her journey of where to live but also the journey of her soul. Emma had to learn to live with deep sorrow, how to turn mistakes into things she could accept, and how to trust God. This Change and Cherish series is excellent, especially for those who enjoy history. Jane Kirkpatrick does a wonderful job of research to get the facts and then spins her narrative into novel form.

      It is good reading but would definitely be better to have each book separately.

      Based on the real life of Emma Wagner Geisy. Detailed history not only re Emma's growth but growth and advancement of women in society. Easily drawn into story and found it difficult to put down. Jane Kirkpatrick

      is an excellent author with attention to detail.

      This trilogy really takes place through history. As a lover of women's history, this was a book that really kept in step with the time period. Yes, any woman would benefit from understanding how our roles in society came about. I won't recant the story line as you can read it in other reviews. But my impression of this book is good. The writing is clear and I would love to read more from this same author.
