Item Description...
In a story inspired by historical events, Emma Wagner searches for influence and respect in the town of Bethel, Missouri, in the 1850s, but getting what she wants has unexpected consequences.

Publishers Description
Young Emma Wagner chafes at the constraints of Bethel colony, an 1850s religious community in Missouri that is determined to remain untainted by the concerns of the world. A passionate and independent thinker, she resents the limitations placed on women, who are expected to serve in quiet submission. In a community where dissent of any form is discouraged, Emma finds it difficult to rein in her tongue--and often doesn't even try to do so, fueling the animosity between her and the colony's charismatic and increasingly Autocratic leader, Wilhelm Keil. Eventually Emma and her husband, Christian, are sent along with eight other men to scout out a new location in the northwest where the Bethelites can prepare to await "the last days." Christian believes they've found the ideal situation in Washington territory, but when Keil arrives with the rest of the community, he rejects Christian's choice in favor of moving to Oregon. Emma pushes her husband to take this opportunity to break away from the group, but her longed-for influence brings unexpected consequences. As she seeks refuge for her wounded faith, she learns that her passionate nature can be her greatest strength--if she can harness it effectively.

In The Author's Own Words...

If you'd like more information about me, please come visit my website at and click on my blog. My dog also has a blog and you can find out what it's like to be Bodacious Bo, too. A monthly newsletter called Story Sparks is my way of sharing books about authors I enjoy as well as commenting on life and love. You'll find out more about me than you probably ever wanted to know!

One item not listed on my lists of books is my selection included in an anthology called "Crazy Woman Creek: Women Rewrite the American West" published by Houghton Mifflin I also have a piece in Storytellers II, a book published a few years ago by Multnomah Press and a few short selections in Daily Guideposts of a few years back. My first novella, "The Courting Quilt" is part of a collection that made the New York Times bestsellers September 2011 in a collection called Log Cabin Christmas. The rest of my writing, as they say, is history. Or it was until my first contemporary came out this fall. Called Barcelona Calling, it's the story of a writer who loses her way as she seeks fulfillment thinking she'll find it with fame. It's a laugh out loud book according to reviewers. I hope you'll enjoy it.

Fantastic Novel by Kirkpatrick!  Jun 16, 2008
Everyone should read Jane Kirkpatrick's novels! She has a brilliant, poetic way with words that makes every page a treat. Her characters are heart-warming and real. I was rooting for plucky Emma all the way. The romance was subtle and rewarding, not mushy! The history and setting were so real, I fell into her story in an instant. Wonderful!
Jane Kirkpatrick is amazing!  May 28, 2008
I have ready many of Jane Kirkpatrick's books, including this book and the remaining two in the series, and all I can say is that she is amazing. Quiet, reflexive, poignant, insightful, chilling. Her historical research is comprehensive; her storytelling abilities unsurpassed. Share the books with your children -- they are always wholesome and a rarity among the "trash" that we call literature. I wait impatiently for her next book. I will continue to read anything she writes.
1st book in series amazing story of faith  Apr 21, 2008
The first book, A Clearing in the Wild, starts off with teenaged Emma Wagner, who lives in a religious communal community in Bethel, Missouri under the leadership of Wilhelm Keil. Emma has set her sights on Christian Giesy, a leader in the community who has devoted his entire life to serving Father Keil. Keil is sending a group of scouts out to Washington Territory to find land for the entire commune to move to. The railroad and other outside influences are coming too close to his people, and he's worried about their safety. Headstrong Emma manages to first marry Christian and then finagle her way as the only female member of the scouting team, conveniently forgetting to mention that she's pregnant. The group of nine men, plus Emma travel across the West encountering Indians, the Rockies, and inclement weather, all in a quest to find a new home for Father Keil. By the time they arrive in northern Washington, Emma has baby Andy and a goat named Opal. The scouts try to start building homes and planting crops in the completely unfamiliar territory. Christian is the leader, but Emma regularly butts heads with him trying to do things her way. I fell in love with the character of Emma. She's stubborn, driven, and always certain that she's right. Sounds like someone my family knows very well. Emma tends to rely on herself more than Christian or even God, despite her deep faith. Based on the real life Emma Giesy, this book is an amazing story of courage and perserverance.
New fan of Jane Kirkpatrick  Mar 24, 2008
I always enjoy something based on western history. It was well written and a character I could identify with. I bought the sequel and preordered the next book in the series.
I'm never disappointed!  Dec 19, 2007
I'm exited about the new Change and Cherish Historical Series by Jane Kirkpatrick. When I start reading her books, I can't put them down. I love the history, geography and emotions envolved. I'm always reminded of the strength of women. I'm so eager to read the second book.
