Product Description

A child with hair the color of wet sand is lost and found then lost again, evoking the longings of the orphan in us all and the joy of sweet reunion. Asiam is just a child when she's lost by her white family on the wagon trail west. When she is taken in by Paiute people, she must work hard to earn her keep, but perhaps she has found a place to belong. She even has a new name: Shell Flower. But when hardship comes, she is cast away. She loses so much, including her first love. Will she ever have a family that is truly her own? Learning to live in the white man's world, Shell Flower--now called Alice--wonders if once again, someone might love her. If she might have something to give. Could there really be a God who gives rather than takes, who offers water that will quench her innermost thirst? The heartwarming sequel to award-winner A Sweetness to the Soul, Love to Water My Soul is a story of God's faithfulness and provision of spiritual direction who meets our needs in His perfect timing.

Publisher's Description

A remakable story of God's constancy and provision for all lovers of history, romance and faith...

Based on historical characters and events, Love to Water My Soul recounts the dramatic story of an abandoned white child rescued by Indians. Among Oregon's Paiute people, Shell Flower seeks love and a pace of belonging...only to be cast away from her home.

In the years that follow, she faces a new life in the world of the white man--a life filled with both attachment and loss--yet finds that God faithfully unites her with a love that fills all longing in this heartwarming sequel to Jane Kirkpatrick's award-winner, A Sweetness to the Soul.

Editorial Reviews

“Rich with sensory imagery, well-developed characters, and peppered with native words, the novel brings alive the traditional and transitional lives of the native people of Oregon in the late nineteenth century.”
- Christian Library Journal for Love to Water My Soul

[Love to Water My Soul] is impossible to put down… Kirkpatrick’s prose is chiseled with wrenching images that draw one into the story and engage one’s senses… Jane Kirkpatrick has written another fine western novel.”
- Persimmon Hill magazine

“Like a tumbleweed blown by a desert wind, this book carries the reader along. The wide space of Oregon history and the inner space of personal growth fill the pages of this treasure of a book. It is about the individual and community, the internalizing of values reflected from one’s childhood family, and the journey toward wholeness that most of us make.”
- Sally White, Scio Public Library, for Love to Water My Soul

“A romance, a chronicle of family life, a study of relations between white settlers and reservation Indians, A Sweetness to the Soul is a deceptively simple book that touches something deep in the reader. The best novels leave the reader changed in some significant way. Sweetness does that literally from its opening pages… It is a celebration of those things that connect us, that make us what we are, that give us joy, and sorrow, and understanding. This book will touch your soul.”
- Statesman Journal
