Editorial Reviews

Review

“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

After reading it, I couldn't wait to devour all of her other novels in print in 1999.

She paints a great word picture which draws you right into the story.

Something in this writing of Jane's resonated deeply in me, the lone small child in many foreign worlds, learning enough trust to love, surviving being different. All of these things are still with us today, but set in the historical time of Oregon's clash of cultures they bear wider lessons. For me, Jane draws her characters as if they were part of an autobiography. I can easily imagine myself a child alongside Asiam. For those interested in good history as well as a spell-binding tale, I recommend this book.

Love to Water My Soul has become one of my all time favorite books. I recommend it to anyone who asks for a good book idea. Jane Kirkpatrick's writing shows the resilience of a child and as she grows, an adult. It brought me to tears of sadness, but then of joy. There are so many beautifully written scenes in this book, I had to copy them down in my journal to reread...my one surprise is that Hollywood hasn't turned it in to a movie yet!

I had never read Jane before and have since read all her books.I have met her,she care deeply for the native Americans, Oregon, and God. Her books bring the time period to life and make you ponder to many of life's truths. I gave this book to a teacher friend who is making it required reading in her highschool English class, (here in Ore)! I'm so glad I've discovered Jane and look foward to her series on pioneer women.

Format: Paperback
I loved this book and it gave me the paradigm to see my everyday world differently. I even went through my journals and saw what seemed so bad at the time, that it was for the best in the long run. I just loved her book and became totally absorbed by it. Her female character was strong and brave. After reading it, I couldn't wait to devour all of her other novels in print in 1999. They did not meet the extrodinary writing of Love to Water my Soul.

Format: Paperback
This book tells a very nice story (summarized in other reviews). However, I had some trouble getting started with the book as I found it a little slow in the beginning. I found the writing to be a little bit "flowery" and sometimes wished the author was a little more direct. But overall a good book.

Format: Paperback
The book reminded me a lot of "Memoirs of a Geisha" because of the detailed descriptions of Native American life and the intricacies of the culture. However, I didn't find myself that concerned with the main character. I was more saddened by what happened to the dog than to her husband. There was something about the author's style of writing and the main character's emotional reserve that left my heart feeling more dry than watered.

This is an emotional story based on a true woman. Who is lost between white society and native american society. Also a story rich in Oregon History. Worth reading more than once.

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.
