Description :  A mother's tragedy, a daughter's desire and the 7000 mile journey that changed their lives.&#xa0; <br />&#xa0;<br />In 1896 Norwegian American Helga Estby accepted a wager from the fashion industry to walk from Spokane, Washington to New York City within seven months in an effort to earn $10,000. Bringing along her nineteen year-old daughter Clara, the two made their way on the 3500-mile trek by following the railroad tracks and motivated by the money they needed to save the family farm.&#xa0; After returning home to the Estby farm more than a year later, Clara chose to walk on alone by leaving the family and changing her name. Her decisions initiated a more than 20-year separation from the only life she had known.<br />&#xa0;<br />Historical fiction writer Jane Kirkpatrick picks up where the fact of the Estbys’ walk leaves off to explore Clara's continued journey. What motivated Clara to take such a risk in an era when many women struggled with the issues of rights and independence? And what personal revelations brought Clara to the end of her lonely road? <i>The Daughter's Walk</i> weaves personal history and fiction together to invite readers to consider their own journeys and family separations, to help determine what exile and forgiveness are truly about.<br /><br />“Kirkpatrick has done impeccable homework, and what she recreates and what she imagines are wonderfully seamless. Readers see the times, the motives, the relationships that produce a chain of decisions and actions, all rendered with understatement. Kirkpatrick is a master at using fiction to illuminate history’s truths. This beautiful and compelling work of historical fiction deserves the widest possible audience.”<br /><b><i><b>—</b>Publishers Weekly</i>&#xa0;(Starred Review)</b><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

What begins as a hobby to create an easy-peeling apple for her pies becomes Hulda’s driving purpose: a time-consuming interest in plant hybridization that puts her at odds with family and community, as she challenges the early twentieth-century expectations for a simple housewife.&#xa0; <br />&#xa0;<br />Through the years, seasonal floods continually threaten to erase her Woodland, Washington garden and a series of family tragedies cause even Hulda to question her focus. In a time of practicality, can one person’s simple gifts of beauty make a difference?&#xa0; <br />&#xa0;<br />Based on the life of Hulda Klager, <i>Where Lilacs Still Bloom</i> is a story of triumph over an impossible dream and the power of a generous heart.<br />&#xa0;<br /><i>“Beauty matters… it does. God gave us flowers for a reason. Flowers remind us to put away fear, to stop our rushing and running and worrying about this and that, and for a moment, have a piece of paradise right here on earth.”</i>

29 Everything She Didn't Say

Author : Jane Kirkpatrick
Genre :  Religious  Books  Fiction & Literature  Historical 
Release Date :  2018-09-04
Description :  In 1911, Carrie Strahorn wrote a memoir entitled <i>Fifteen Thousand Miles by Stage</i>, which shared some of the most exciting events of 25 years of traveling and shaping the American West with her husband, Robert Strahorn, a railroad promoter, investor, and writer. That is all fact. <i>Everything She Didn't Say</i> imagines Carrie nearly ten years later as she decides to write down what was really on her mind during those adventurous nomadic years.<br /><br /> Certain that her husband will not read it, and in fact that it will only be found after her death, Carrie is finally willing to explore the lessons she learned along the way, including the danger a woman faces of losing herself within a relationship with a strong-willed man and the courage it takes to accept her own God-given worth apart from him. Carrie discovers that wealth doesn't insulate a soul from pain and disappointment, family is essential, pioneering is a challenge, and western landscapes are both demanding and nourishing. Most of all, she discovers that home can be found, even in a rootless life.<br /><br /> With a deft hand, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick draws out the emotions of living--the laughter and pain, the love and loss--to give readers a window not only into the past, but into their own conflicted hearts. Based on a true story.
