Genre: Inspirational, Historical Fiction

RT Rating

Kirkpatrick's newest novel in the Change and Cherish series is rich in both historical details and character development. While sometimes Emma may seem shallow and unforgiving, she matures as the story progresses.

Emma Giesy is faced with raising her children alone after her husband, Christian, is tragically killed. She does not want to accept help from the religious order she and her husband had broken away from. She finds their ways severe and unbending, which is why they have moved to where they are now. She also finds it difficult to accept others' help. She does not want to appear as a weak widowed woman. When her decision puts her children and herself in harm's way, she may have to leave her pride at the wayside
to finally accept the help offered to her. (Waterbrook, Apr., 400 pp., $13.99)
