Winner of the Western Heritage Wrangler Award, A Sweetness to the Soul is based on historical characters and events. At the age of twelve, Jane Herbert faces a tragedy and rejection from a cold mother, which leaves her alone in the wilderness of Oregon. This novel describes in amazing detail the trials and tribulations of being a pioneer and being one of the first in the west, along with the joys, pain, fear, and love that were a part of that life. Jane's life-long search for forgiveness and love offers a testimony to the miracle of God's healing power. Jane Kirkpatrick, softcover, 420 pages.
