So begins this story of one womans restoration from personal grief to the meaning of community. Based on the life of German-American Emma Wagner Giesy, the only woman sent to the Oregon Territory in the 1850s to help found a communal society, award-winning author Jane Kirkpatrick shows how landscape, relationships, spirituality and artistry poignantly reflect a womans desire to weave a unique and meaningful legacy from the threads of an ordinary life. While set in the historical past, it is a story for our own time answering the question: Can threads of an isolated life weave a legacy of purpose in community?

Patricia Smith5 Stars Out Of 5April 10, 2009Patricia SmithThis is a marvelous conclusin to this wonderful series. If you are interested in the sects of the 1800s this is a must read. The extensive research is invaluable.
Janis Armstrong5 Stars Out Of 5March 13, 2009Janis ArmstrongI was sad to come to the end of this series. I didn't think Kirkpatrick could possibly keep up the pace she kept in the first two of this saga but she did. I enjoyed every page and have ordered more of her books.
Christine Howard5 Stars Out Of 5January 13, 2009Christine HowardThis entire series was excellent. The historical research alone is worth the reader's time. Each character is so well defined that the reader finds themselves in discussion with them throughout the book. Jane's gift of writing is a blessing and her authentic faith refreshing when so many authors skirt around their beliefs.
