      The novel begins with Marie and her daughter, Marguerite, staring up at the stars on the eve of Marguerite's wedding. What really caught my interest was how Kirkpatrick voiced the questions in each woman's mind - the mother, wondering if she had imparted to her daughter everything she would need to know as a wife, and the daughter, filled with anxiety for what marriage will bring. Soon enters Marie's younger daughter Mary Ann, plagued with self-doubt and feeling that she is overlooked in favor o [...]

      What a fascinating weave of novalist skill with real people and facts! This is the last of a trio of books about a native American woman who lived and made a huge mark on the making of America from 1812 to 1850. I learnen so much history from the naive American view point that when we recently traveled to Eugene, Oregon my mind was filled with images of so many people who had lived there before the flood from the east arrived to claim all the land as theirs! Anyone who is interested in the histo [...]

      This book ends the series of three in the "Tender Ties Historical Series". They are especially interesting to me because of my Indian heritage. The story tells of the hardship and struggle of a brave Indian mother making the trip across the Rockies from Iowa to the Pacific Northwest in 1811. She made that trip by boat, foot and horseback with her husband and two small boys. This last book was very goode best of the series, I think. I learned a lot from these books, mostly how extremely spoiled a [...]

      This third book in the series was very thought provoking. The author takes the time to explore the deepest yearnings and turbulent journey of a womans heart in her later years while weaving an interesting tale of the events that may have shaped her life. This well researched fictional story about a real woman may prompt further interest in the colorful history of our conuntry.

      This is the last in the Tender Ties series. It appealed to me because I love history of the American West. While this is a novelization, it does accurately depict life at that time - especially for women. It covers a location in history (American North West)during the development of fur trade wars between Astor and the Hudson Bay Company. Not an easy read.

      The last book in the Tender Ties Historical series from Jane Kirkpatrick. As with the previous two books, this is also an excellent book. Marie is now in her later years of life coping with her faith, family and mental illness. Marie and her family have settled and are making roots in the area of the Oregon territory that is now know as the Willamette valley.

      was pretty bored through the 2nd book in the series, probably won't waste time on this one.

    8. Sheryl on said:

      I did not listen to too much of this. It was hard for me to understand and boring.

    9. Maryd on said:

      I really enjoyed this series, probably because it is set in Washington and Oregon, and I learned more about our regional history. Great books!

    10. Maura on said:

      I mistakenly started this series with this book instead of the first so I missed a lot of the background.

    11. Katrina on said:

      A good series about another "mother of our Country" her wit, determination, skill and her journey with God. Jane Kirkpatrik wove the true story of Marie Dorion into a good read.

    12. Kristen Ballam Burkhardt on said:

      The third book in the series and not nearly as captivating. I gave up after a couple chapters and am waiting to finish it. Don't let that stop you from reading the first book (A Name of Her Own).

      I loved all of this series. Watching Marie's faith develope though her life experiences was amazing.
